TechSmith Corporation Permissions Guidelines

Stock art, clip art, and photographs

Any digital images, stock photographs, clip art, or other artistic work (collectively "images") delivered with any TechSmith product may be used in accordance with the rights set out in the License Agreement that ships with that TechSmith product. If your intended use falls within the terms of the License Agreement or other product documentation, further written permission is not required.

Please note that images contained on TechSmith product boxes may not be used except as provided in the guidelines for box shots (see below).

Any use of images delivered with an TechSmith product and not provided for in the License Agreement, requires written permission from TechSmith. In some instances, images included in the TechSmith products may be owned by a third party and licensed under terms different than those contained in the TechSmith License Agreement. If you are seeking to use third-party images or content, please contact the copyright owner directly for permission. It is unlikely that TechSmith will be able to grant permission beyond that contained in the License Agreement due to contractual restrictions, third-party rights, and other intellectual property restraints.

If you are still interested in requesting special permission for an TechSmith image, please submit your request by e-mail. Please allow two weeks for your request to be processed.

Under no circumstances will TechSmith license the reproduction, distribution, or modification of any third-party images displayed on TechSmith.com.

  1. Your use may not be obscene or pornographic, and may not be disparaging, defamatory, or libelous to TechSmith, any of its products, or any other person or entity.
