seat license

->> I have an educational book publisher requesting that I bill them for 30 seat licenses.
I'd gladly do it but I never heard the term 'seat license' used before or what is the going rate.
Anyone know and can enlighten me? Please.

->> A seat license is more commonly used with computer software, and generally refers to the number of simultaneous users of the thing being licensed. That said, I have seen some stock photo agencies using multi-seat licenses, often in connection with royalty-free licensing. Under such licenses, the licensee is granted the ability to have up to a certain number of users accessing the images and/or can store the images licensed on up to a certain number of computers.

Has the publisher given you any idea how they intend to use the image(s) to be licensed?

->> Like Samuel said, seat licenses typically are associated with software. When you purchase software this way, a seat is named and the software cannot be transferred to another seat (seat = person or asset). This is different than concurrent licenses where a random subset of users may access the product until all seats are full. A seat has to open up for another user to be able to use the product.

The long and short of it, build them a quote with your standard wording out of fotoQuote and call it a day. This way you have no surprises.
