    Ditto all of above. If you can't make it work properly — and the use of enough screens to get your contributors seriously pissed off proves that you can't — then please dispense with it.

  3. Dry January

    I plan to drop out of Distribution come April. During 2018, I got half a dozen such licenses, 100% of which were "Bulk Discount, Flat Rate" sales. From the time I got my first sales with Alamy in 2015 to 2017 there were some distributor licenses at decent rates, but not lately. Perhaps my collection is too small to draw a fair conclusion and one could figure that every little bit helps. But it looks like the distributors are undercutting Alamy's prices by a significant margin using their flat rate deals and the same images would have licensed for higher rates if contracted directly.
