For licence terms, Individual Pixel adds all of the following components to the licence:

  • Worldwide (includes UK, EU and US) first and second/subsequent serial rights - a licence to publish worldwide in a ‘serial’ publication - a newspaper, journal or magazine for the first, second and subsequent times.
