A strange situatiom popped up yesterday... I received a direct message from a would-be image buyer in S.E. Asia. He had searched online to find a point of contact for me, as he wanted to negotiate an indefinite term of use for a rights-managed image, rather than Alamy's max. 5 year term. The image in question is a portrait of a high-ranking Tibetan Buddhist lama (yes, really) taken in India 3 years ago. Apparently this lama has a following in neighbouring countries and his followers hoped to print and display the image in perpetuity at their temple or meeting place. On the spur of the moment I suggested he go ahead with the 5-year license and I would undertake that they could retain right of usage indefinitely. Now I see that they have only taken out 'noncommercial, personal use' which seems rather poor compensation... what would others do?
While researching a type of tree I have a pic of, I found on Google an image of the leaves that confirmed the ID. However, the image was from here on Alamy. When clicked on, it showed a different licensing model than the RM or RF licensing I see on my site. It showed Personal use, Business use (personal use and...), and Enhanced business use (business use and... ) There is a clickable link that says Which is right for me? which shows a drop-down window with tick marks placed on the various usage licenses showing what all is included. Looking at another image from the same contributor, it was uploaded on January 17, 2019. Is this a new licensing model? Do any of you have this option? Also, it appears to be RM as there is an Other options button that brings down the window for choices... image use, size, print run etc... Curious minds want to know... maybe something new they`re rolling out?
