  1. I just tagged you in another comment -- I keep seeing contributors referring to our "gross sales" but the contract isn't clear on what's included in "your total License Fees," whether that's our commissions/cut or the gross of what client's paid before fees are deducted: At the end of each Revenue Year if your total License Fees for that year, net of any refunds: are less than $250 then the Alamy Commission for sales of your Content in the following Revenue Year will automatically switch to Alamy Silver as outlined in the Alamy Commission Table; or are greater than or e
  2. Yes I was just looking at the contract wording (and tagging @Sally) because it doesn't specify whether that $250 in 'your total License Fees' for that year is gross sales, what the clients were charged, or if it's my cut. (Also, so the exclusivity benefit is no more?) At the end of each Revenue Year if your total License Fees for that year, net of any refunds: are less than $250 then the Alamy Commission for sales of your Content in the following Revenue Year will automatically switch to Alamy Silver as outlined in the Alamy Commission Table; or are greater than or equa
  3. I am still a bit confused about what happens to me now as a "Blue model" contributor? Does my original contract remain in effect, or will I be going from 50% commission on my exclusively Alamy images to 20% if sales continue to be slow?

Here's mine: Dear Alamy Reps, Like other contributors, I've been stunned to see some of my Rights Managed images getting sold for microstock rates since January '21 -- multiple RM travel images from Puerto Vallarta going for 25 cents a piece for a 5-year license before Alamy’s cut, and I pay 30% income tax on the remaining 10 cents? This is not something I realized was possible when I signed up for the "Novel Use" sche
  5. Yes, it looks like you can simply click to opt out until you click it--then it explains to me I can't opt out until next April.
  6. Like other contributors, I've been stunned to see some of my RM images getting sold for microstock rates since January '21 -- multiple travel images from Puerto Vallarta going for 25 cents a piece (before income taxes of 30%, dear Alamy), which is not what I ever realized was possible when I signed up for the "Novel Use" scheme in 2016 (and by the way the American usage of "scheme" fits here). I'm not happy with the explanation Alamy has provided (how great it is that they can find all these extra ways to license our images outside of their existing model), and I'm really concerned I can't OPT
