  1. Country: WorldwideUsage: Novel Use deal, Magazine, print and online, single use, any size inside, 250,000 circulation, UK, Magazine, print and online, single use, any size inside, 250,000 circulation, UK Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronicIndustry sector: Government (local, regional, national)Print run: up to 250,000Image Size: Any size Fee: very small (I did that bit) Firstly I thought Novel Use was dead. Secondly, when it did exist I was under the impression it was for odd individual licenses that didn't cover normal uses - eg magazines with 1/4 million circulation
  2. I just had a $2.40 license for 'Novel Use - Scheme 2'. Thing is I have never been in the Novel Use scheme, as confirmed by my settings in Additional Revenue Opportunities. I sent an e-mail to CR but won't get a reply till after the weekend. Anyone else? And what is Scheme 2? Gen
  3. I was under the impression that novel use was dead and gone. But last week I had a 'sale' for "novel use, India rights", though the country was listed as 'worldwide' and the use was a website. I didn't think putting a photo on a website was a particularly novel way of using it and there is surely a regular licence for that. Maybe it was a typo.
  4. I used to be very active on the (old) Alamy forums and back in 2008 we had many discussions about "Novel Use". At the time and the way the markets were going I decided it wasn't for me. Stock photography is not such a significant part of my photography business these days and so it is time to revisit options. What is the current thinking on "Novel Use" - I notice that 70% of contributors have signed up to it? Do you see any significant benefit from doing so? The 30% who have opted out - why have you remained out of the scheme? For me, back in 2008, I felt that "Novel Use" undermined the value of the images and the work involved in creating them. Today, my stock imagery is something I create "on the back" of other things so any income from it is a bonus so I am wondering about opting in. So what's the general feeling about Novel Use these days? Ian.
  5. I was under the impression that Novel Use was either on its way out or gone altogether. I haven't had any NU sales for months. Until today. I just checked net revenue and 14 of them have popped up - 3 of them for $3 so it almost adds up to a sale. I was wondering if it was a] last minute accounting before winding up the scheme b] a new surge in NU sales c] pure coincidence. Has anyone else experienced something similar?
  6. It would be helpful to be sent a reminder via email, when the opt out date from the Novel Use scheme is approaching each year. This would insure that the scheme does not roll over into the next year without contributors having a chance to opt out.
