Obtaining Usage Rights
William P. Gottlieb’s jazz images are sought after for many uses, from term papers to major motion pictures. Obtaining permission to use his photos is generally fast and simple.
To seek permission to use a Gottlieb image, please fill out the Usage Inquiry Form below. To prevent unnecessary delays, please include as much information as possible. The images(s) desired are best identified by LOC call number. These can be found by searching the LOC Gottlieb Archive or browsing through our Gallery. We will respond to your request quickly, generally within one day.
After the terms of usage are finalized, they will be included in the invoice, which is generally sent to you along with the high-resolution digital image(s) you want.
Note: Credit & copyright notice is almost always required. If they are omitted when required the quoted fee is doubled.
Payment for commercial usage is usually required within 30 days of invoice. Late payment fees will apply beyond the 30 days. We reserve the right to require payment before delivery of images. Preferred payment method is by check. For overseas invoices up to $700, payment by Visa/MC is preferred but wire transfers are also possible.
