Studio Registration — Info & Disclaimer
Welcome, new studio!
Thanks for choosing clipvia™ as your distribution platform. Before we get started, I wanted to convey a few rules that we here at clipvia have to follow — occasionally by our web host, but more commonly we’re legally bound to obey these rules and regulations.
Your compliance with these rules and regulations will help us to operate an issue-free and continual-service distribution platform. Please read the following carefully, it means a lot to us.
We want to assure you that we use standard industry practices for our 128-bit SSL encryption during our checkout process. This is the very same level of encryption used by every site for every secure checkout process on the internet. Customer data is safe and secure.
For sensitive information that we store concerning studios (SSNs, etc), we go above and beyond these industry practices by using 256-bit AES encryption. This is the same level of security that the NSA uses for their sensitive data, so you can be positive that even if our system is compromised (highly unlikely), your data will still be secure.
Rules & Regulations
Please read these carefully. Failure to comply with these rules is grounds for immediate studio and/or video suspension without compensation.

Payout Methods And Rates
Our current payout rate is 70% of the net clip sale profit and 80% of net tribute profit. These are the percentages you will be paid at the end of the first month that your account has accumulated at least $150, after the 5.25% payment processing fees have been deducted.
The current options for payouts are direct deposit (free) and wire transfer ($25 deducted from payout for bank wiring fees).
Clipvia™ uses the following technologies:
- Storefront Hosting: All storefronts are hosted on our secure servers and distributed using the Clipvia distribution platform.
- Clip Hosting: All clips are securely stored on a third-party distributed storage solution. Clips are only accessible using keys generated by the Clipvia distribution platform and cannot be redistributed.
- Payment Processing: All payment processing is handled by a secure third-party billing solution.
- Uploading: The Clipvia system handles the uploading process, so no FTP programs are required.
- Preview Generation: Because of Title 2257 limitations, creation of clip previews (animated gif or otherwise) is the responsibility of the clip producer.
- Offline Clip Creation: At this point in time, Clipvia does not offer any creation of clips from any mediums. Clip creation must be digital and is the responsibility of the studio.
- Support: Technical and Account support are available via email and support form (link located in the footer). Please allow 24 hours for a response.
