OK.  I'm happy to help students and see them licence images for as low as $1.  

 

What I am not happy about is licensing an image to a student for $1 IN PERPETUITY.

 

This is plainly wrong.

Is it because an image used in something like a dissertation would need to be available in perpetuity?   I believe such academic documents are publicly accessible long after the student has graduated.

Yes Joseph, you are probably correct.  But 1$?  In perpetuity? Really? It's not right.  It is skewed too much to the student.  Make it $20 or £$15 at least. 

 

For me to get that particular image meant an hour driving to London,  £15 for parking, a long and awkward crawl dragging tripod and camera gear through a tunnel, a 4 hour wait, a return through the tunnel, and an hour long drive home.  For $1?  Pfft!

Gordon, I agree that this feels like a liberty.  Supporting students is part of the Alamy ethos but I would like to have the choice of opting in or out of this sort of discounted, sale much like we can for NU.
