By selling your photos, Ozmo.com acts like a stock photo distributor, but itâ€™s more than that; this site (now on beta) also helps photographers, bloggers and other artists license their works for commercial works.
Hereâ€™s how it works: the photographer or artist selects his license terms and pricing and registers his works with Ozmo. Then CCC (the non-profit Copyright Clearance Center who created Ozmo) handles the entire licensing process and all payments go through Amazonâ€™s Flexible Payment Service when a license is purchased. With Ozmo, buyers know instantly that they have the right to use the content and sellers know how their content is being used.
Ozmo was created by the rights licensing experts at Copyright Clearance Center, the worldâ€™s largest provider of rights licensing services. In just the last year, CCC distributed more than $135 million in royalties to rightsholders. CCC created Ozmo in response to a market need for a comprehensive solution to license userâ€generated content for commercial use.
