The PLUS Coalition is an international non-profit organization with a tightly focused mission: to simplify and facilitate the communication and management of image rights.
Organized by respected associations, leading companies, standards bodies, scholars and industry experts, the PLUS Coalition is operated by and for all communities involved in creating, distributing, using and preserving images. Spanning more than seventy countries, these diverse stakeholders have collaborated to develop both the PLUS Registry and a system of industry standards that together make it easier to communicate, understand and manage images.
The PLUS Coalition exists at the crossroads between technology, commerce, the arts, preservation and education. More Info.
