IMG launches new service Rights & Clearance

8 March 2017

We are expanding our services beyond sports footage licensing with the introduction of a rights and clearances team. The team will work to identify all properties and talent in a project and manage the negotiation of permissions on their behalf.

Securing the necessary permissions from all rights holders can be complicated, expensive and time consuming. The Rights & Clearance team has the ability to simplify and manage this process from the initial consultation through to delivery of fully executed rights agreements. Drawing on IMG's unparalleled expertise, we have extensive experience of working on complex projects involving multiple copyright holders.

The Rights & Clearance team will work with you to identify all properties and talent in your project and negotiate permissions on your behalf, leveraging our relationships across federations TV and film studios, talent agencies, record companies and publishers. The service we provide saves you both time and money and allows us to deliver your required rights on time and at the most competitive industry rates. Rights cleared include but are not restricted to: footage, still photography music, film, publishing and individual image rights. 

Service includes:

  • Free initial consultations 
  • Contact and negotiations with rights holders
