Selling editorial photos as microstock

Shutterstock and Dreamstime allow you to sell images on an editorial license, meaning that purchasers will only be able to use the images in editorial formats (e.g. magazines, newspapers, etc). This is useful for images that you have taken which are of specific interest (famous people, places, current events...) and may not have model or property releases.
These sample editorial images from my collection were taken on the day of George W. Bush's inauguration and depict items that might not normally have passed as royalty-free for various reasons. They are usable as editorial imagery because of the public nature of the event and the public interest in the event.
