Contract Change 2021 - Official thread


Recommended Posts

I have followed all 119 pages of this topic, still confused and more confused.  I am putting restrictions on my collection, but am afraid I'll put so many that nothing will sell.

Can anyone who has understood this contract better than I have, help with just a few specific questions I have.

 

1. If I had images at another agency which have never sold; have since been removed and are not available for licensing there, can I mark those as Exclusive to Alamy?

(Anything with Logos, Brands, Trademarks, Statues etc., I know what I need to do.)

 

 

I understand everyone is busy and have their own ports and things to sort out, but will appreciate if could spare a few minutes to respond to the above.

Thanks

Helen

 

Why would you want to make anything exclusive to Alamy. There would be no advantage to doing so.

But what if your images are exclusive? Wouldn’t the advantage be that Alamy will chase infringements on behalf of the photographer?

we have no proof that they will.  to date we have had zero report of infringement award from anyone nor Alamy, and the process must have been going on for a while since this is own the Identified the need to alter the commission schedule structure as per the director.  the only thing that seems to happen are late licences, without even any late fees and certainly no penalty for steeling copyright property.

Hoping to hang on to the 50%, BobD.  I batch processed some images yesterday, not image by image, whether they were or not exclusive I removed the exclusive checkmark and this morning $-20.00 other fees.  not sure if the deduction is related to that plus some other restrictions I have put on the images some are just in a straight jacket right now.  Will be going through the port again now and more carefully and selectively applying restrictions.
