(New York, NY - January 13, 2005) -- JupiterImages, a division of Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM), today announced the launch of RightsProtectedImages (, a groundbreaking new licensing model for the professional stock photography industry. is the first image service to license exclusive worldwide rights with a simple process and at an affordable price.

"Without negotiation, customers can go online and license images outright for a set period of time, ensuring that they will not run into any competing use problems," said Jupitermedia Chairman and CEO Alan Meckler. "The next best alternative in our industry forces the customer to specify exactly how and for how long they will use the image, engage in an extended negotiation process, pay a premium which can be upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, and after all that not be guaranteed any real protection. We knew we could do better than that, so we created in response to the needs of creative professionals throughout the marketplace."

Once customers license a photo, they have exclusive use of the image for as many different ways as they want through the end of their license. Prices start at $799 for a three-month term.

"JupiterImages has quickly amassed the largest collection of wholly-owned digital images on the Web ranging from animations and clipart to stock photos and footage," continued Meckler. "This launch further expands our image offerings which include Comstock Images, ThinkStock Images, ThinkStock Footage,, Hemera Images and now, which dynamically adds a more affordable and superior alternative to rights managed licensing."
