Clause 8 - Pricing and Promotion


Question

Clause 8.1 of the Contributor Contract states that Alamy is entitled to set prices in its "absolute discretion". I can't see that it mentions reasonability anywhere though. Recently sold Archive image RF, any size, Worldwide, any publication, in perpetuity etc etc. My 40% cut is the grand total of $0.22!! Is this common practice? I have had one or two dubious amounts in the past but not anywhere near this.

correct.  this is the contract that was agreed to, actually not a new clause, was there before.  By hiring Alamy as your agent, you have given them total power in determining what fee is appropriate, and even more what discount they can give.  Such is the reality

I appreciate that but was wondering if anyone else had had that same experience. Any sort of reasonableness, expected from a recognised company like Alamy, would have seem to have gone by the board in this case.  With $0.22 I could only buy  9.6 Jelly Babies !!

plenty of posts on the forums of amount way lower than that.  I think the reported record is 8 cents if I remember well.  and these were reported prior to the contract changes and have been a reality for over a year i think

These very small amounts are new and quite a few people have mentioned them on the forum.

I complained to Alamy over a week ago with no reply. I suggest all should complain direct of the low pricing. Register your disgust. Otherwise you'll be deemed to be satisfied.
