Shutterstock will be removing the Enhanced License and Sensitive Use opt out

To simplify options for our Shutterstock Premier customers, and to expand the visibility of your work, Shutterstock will be removing the Enhanced License and Sensitive Use opt-out component tomorrow, Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

No action is required on your part. Starting tomorrow, your content will be licensable by all Shutterstock customers, including those who need Enhanced License usage and who intend to use your content in specific sensitive contexts. Your earnings potential from these premium license types is generally greater than from our Standard Licenses.

Enhanced Licenses allow customers to use your content in high-profile projects, such as film and television, incorporation into merchandise for sale, wall art for commercial spaces, and print runs over 500,000.
The concept of Sensitive Use only applies to content featuring models. Customers will be able to use your model-released content for certain potentially sensitive purposes, specifically limited to: promotion of tobacco products, implying mental or physical impairment, or use in political contexts.
Customers are never permitted to use your content in a way that is defamatory, deceptive, pornographic, libelous, obscene, or illegal.
