  1. Alamy replied to contributors: "We’re aware that this changes the commission incentive for many contributors to sell exclusively with us, although there will be the benefit of potential infringements revenue as exclusive images will be given a higher priority in any work going on in this area." Alamy mentioned infringement(s) eight times within their response to contributor's questions but what they did not inform contributors of is, what benefit there will be for them. Q.

  3. Thanks to meanderingemu and Matt Ashmore for replying to this thread. I have tried holding my breath Matt but it appears that Mr Masterton is too busy zooming up and down the M8 to reply.

  6. Colblimp, you made the correct decision. This was the reply I received from Alamy "We have heard back from our team regarding this questionable personal use who explained we have now closed down this case at our end. The sale has now been refunded at the request of the customer as it turns out they thought they were actually buying a bottle of Cassis. It sounds silly, but you’d be surprised at how often it happens." Aye right, anyone who believes that is on some kind of substance.
  7. Does not appear to be many recent landscapes in your portfolio KM?
