Editorial License - what is this?

Scottish Inverary Castle

As a newbie I'm a bit confused. This image has been transferred to Editorial license. What does this mean? Is it a good thing?

Thanks in advance for your answers and advice :)

Hi, Thanks for the comments. The property is a historical building which is open to the public including the gardens. It is also a private residence. I believe an editorial license is probably the safest.

hmm - I wonder why though - wouldn't think this is editorial because it looks like a historical building - is it perhaps because it is private owned and the photograph seems to be taking the photo on the property?

The building is probably copyrighted and would NOT be usable as RF unless you had a propery release form the owners/architect. As Editorial, you do not need a release as long as the image is for editorial or educational use such as news artical or textbook.
