Guest posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceHi All, I've decided to terminate my contract with Alamy for several reasons but I have an issue with the contract as it stands. There is a period of 45 days in which my images will remain on sale as normal. After that period any image that has been downloaded can be sold for a period of two years from the 45 day termination. Also, any image that has been licenced (I'm assuming that to mean any image sale) can be relicenced indefinitely. Now, my issues are that my sold images will be effectively locked in to Alamy and can not be offered else where on an exclusive basis, indefinitely. I'm not sure if any sales on that basis will always be at the current 50% commission and quite how the payment works (do I need to keep Alamy updated indefinitely with my bank payment details). It seems, through my conversations with Alamy, that for any image sold, the termination of my contract is mute. They can continue to relicence those images. I thought one of the nice things with Alamy was that it was straightforward to terminate the contract. I do accept and understand the reasons for the 45 days and even the two year period but the indefinite terms are difficult to swallow. The more I as Alamy the more confused I get lol. Hope someone can help here. Cheers in advance, Dayve
