CALGARY (December 8, 2009) - Veer (, a producer and provider of visual elements and design-related products, today announced the introduction of a new Customer Protection Plan automatically extended to customers purchasing microstock content on Veer Marketplace.

The Veer Marketplace Customer Protection Plan provides customers free protection up to $10,000, which can be used to cover legal costs and direct damages in the event that a claim is ever filed against an image. The protection underscores Veer’s commitment that Veer Marketplace imagery purchased and used in accordance with the Veer Marketplace license will not breach any copyrights or rights of publicity.

“We make sure that each image from our carefully selected contributors meets our high standards of quality, has releases from models and real property owners, and has been screened for copyright issues,” said Aaron Booth, Senior Director, Creative Content at Veer. “We stand behind our imagery, which is why we are extending protection if a claim is made against a customer’s use of Marketplace content.”

Veer Marketplace is already one of the safest places to license imagery online. Veer’s team of image experts adheres to the strictest standards in reviewing community-contributed content to ensure it meets comprehensive legal and ethical guidelines. The new Veer Marketplace Customer Protection Plan gives customers added peace of mind when licensing images from the hundreds of thousands available for as little as one dollar through credit packs and subscriptions.
