Overlay on library assets

Users can enable the overlay feature on their business unit. On enabling this feature an overlay will be displayed on assets having usage rights expired or not yet started. This is to restrict the original image to be copied or used without permission. The overlay will also be applied to the asset tile view and list view.

The assets with the usage rights set as expired or not yet started will have an overlay text ‘Usage rights expired or not yet started' with an ‘X’ crossing out the asset preview.

Key Information 

  • This feature applies to all usage right types and media types.

  • Downloading assets with the overlay downloads a clean copy.

  • The overlay is displayed on all secure and public share asset preview screens. 

  • There will be no overlay on assets without any usage rights applied.

  • General rights - If an asset has General usage right type added multiple times (e.g. General Expired, General Available, and General Not yet started). Then we do not display the overlay during the available period though the asset has expired/not yet started assets.
    For E.g. Asset A1 has the following UR's:
    General - Set from 01 Jan -15 Jan
    General - Set from 01 Feb -20 Feb
    We display the overlay between 16 Jan - 31 Jan and from 21st Feb onwards.

  • If an asset has multiple usage rights types added (e.g. Music, Voice over artist, etc.). Even if one of the usage right types is expired, the asset gets expired the overlay will be displayed.
    For E.g. Asset A1 has the following UR's:
    General – Set from 01 Feb -20 Feb
    Voice over artist – Set from 01 Jan – 25 Feb
    We display the overlay between 01st Jan – 31st Jan and from 21st Feb onwards.
