isphoto Posted October 15, 2018 Share Posted October 15, 2018 (edited) on the notification today "9.1. In addition to the promotion rights set out in 8.3 above you grant Alamy permission to sell your Images at any price and by any method we feel appropriate and to supply Images to third parties without Alamy having to consult you, including but not limited to trials with new Customers, prototypes/proof of concept and high volume low unit price licences. Where Alamy does not make a charge to these third parties, you will not receive payment." So if I read this right Alamy can now Give away my images "Where Alamy does not make a charge to these third parties, you will not receive payment." so if a publisher wants to trial Alamy, they can potentially get my images for free! If Alamy believe a new customer is worth subsidising then they should not be looking for contributors to fund their trials. So on this basis one contributor gets to fund a trial that they may never see a sale from, this is madness at it best. Also we now have no control over restricting personal use sales, novel use or other newspaper type schemes. Come on Alamy sales are up, margin is up, why the need for this? This may well be a straw that breaks the camels back for some. Edited October 15, 2018 by isphoto 1 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
