Well, it is in law, if that helps. There's no doubt of that- the bar for originality is very low.

You’ve completely misunderstood the ‘Exclusive to Alamy’ box.  As Paul says, that box is only relevant if the picture is for sale at another stock agency. 
 

 

No, it also applies to 2 dimensional "artworks" if seen as a straight copy. I had long and involved negotiations with Alamy about images of postage stamps. Nothing to do with copyright issues but they apparently count as "artworks" and cannot be sold as exclusive.

Postage stamps do, so graffiti certainly does.

Some here do not accept this definition of "exclusive" and do not apply it to their submissions.

The term "exclusive" in relation to our contract with Alamy is up to Alamy to define., as it the term 'artwork'.

I did ask them to include the latter in the definitions in clause 28 of the photographers contract as it had become an important term but they didn't seem to think it was necessary.

Postage stamps, mosaics, book covers and graffiti do, however, count as artworks.

 

"The spirit of the clause in the contract is around flat artwork. Mostly around those artworks that have images in the public domain. We're not talking about walking route signs nailed to trees, a blanket your grandparent knitted or just about anything in a 3d space. It's not possible for us to exhaustively define what is and isn't artwork - but this is the spirit of it.

Well, If Alamy doesn't consider that a definition is necessary, we have to make our own minds up about it.

That's the problem.

Didn't Alamy instruct us a while back to remove all images of graffitti if they were the subject of the image and not incidental to the image?

I think so. And/or they removed some images of graffiti and told us after the fact.

I think saying that X is Art and protected, and Y isn't and isn't protected tends to be problematic considering that some of the street art is better than some gallery art.  Also, some street art is done by artists otherwise represented by galleries and sometimes, it's out and out promotional advertising (one here was of a US rapper).   Nicaragua has some interesting street art, and even has street art classes for children in Esteli.

This dropped in this afternoon, is it unusual to get quite so many details as to where the image has licenced? I’ve only ever had rough details of usage and country or region. Low $$

I was happy to see four decent editorial licenses show up today. This one a dependable repeat-seller for upper $$.

March may turn out to be not so bad after all.
