Company Details


LicenseStream, formerly ImageSpan, is the first comprehensive platform that allows owners of digital content efficiently to license, transact and monitor all forms of electronic media. The platform both significantly extends the reach and revenue potential of companies already licensing their content online and establishes new revenue streams for companies looking to digitize and distribute their traditional, analog material. It also enables customers to detect and curb unauthorized usage of their content.

The LicenseStream platform is strengthened by business partnerships with Digimarc and arvato financial services, a division of Bertelsmann. Several of the world's marquee publishers and media companies, including the Chicago Tribune and the McEvoy Group – a publisher whose brand media properties include SPIN magazine and Chronicle Books – already have begun to develop new revenue streams and drive incremental sales via LicenseStream.

Founded in 2003 and based in Sausalito, California, LicenseStream is backed by Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bertelsmann AG, a leading international media company.
