With a rights-managed (RM) license the buyer is given an exclusive right to use an image for a particular amount of time. The image may be used only by the person who purchased the rights to the image and for a period of time specified under the license.
What are Extended or Enhanced Licenses?
Extended or enhanced licenses are those that give the buyer more rights to the image than the original license (often royalty free) offered.

A Model Release ensures what?
A model release will ensure that you can use the photograph later if you decide to do so.
