There is a grant of royalty-free license but that also has its very specific limits that guide the usage by the subscribers on the platform. It is expected the subscriber gets familiar with all the terms outlined with the license.


Clipcanvas is not free and you can decide to pay for a set or you choose to pay per clip. As of December 2020, five videos on the platform as a pack cost $333, 10 cost $628 and 150 videos will set you back by over $7,000.
