If your goal is to make your next project stand out from the competition by limiting their ability to license the same content as you, then Market Freeze is the way to go.

What you need to know

Market Freeze is an add‑on service that temporarily removes a particular asset/group of assets from our content library, preventing others from licensing the same content from our sites – allowing your project to become uniquely yours.

Choose your Market Freeze duration
Every project has different needs and life spans, so having the ability to choose the duration that works best for your project is one of many things that makes utilizing Market Freeze a smart decision. With durations ranging from several months to several years, you can decide the term you need. We even have total asset buyout options if you require a longer‑term solution.

What happens after your license is processed
Once your Market Freeze license is processed, the covered content is removed from all of our distribution channels for the duration. Towards the end of your Market Freeze, we’ll give you the opportunity to extend, or you can choose to let it expire while retaining royalty free usage of the content. Your content will be re‑released onto our distribution channels if you decide not to renew.
To get Market Freeze protection for your project, all you need to do is reach out. Our team is happy to assist you as you begin this quick and simple process.
