Rights managed, worldwide, unlimited use for chump change


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had one of their rights-managed images licensed recently for worldwide use of unlimited duration on the customer's website, app and social media platforms for a grand total of $1.30? (Or anything like that????) 

 

I'm hoping that Alamy has made a mistake in recording this transaction. It has left me feeling dismayed and frankly, a bit sick.

Licenses for silly amounts, even lower than yours, have been common for some time now. I understand how it can be demoralising, but higher value sales are made too. With an overall mix of high and low sales income is in most cases is down, but not all doom and gloom.

Whilst I can understand the need to compete with micros with RF images I can see no justification in including RM images which are essentially exclusive in these deals.

These ultra low fees are here to stay.

 

If it is having a negative effect on your wellbeing then it has to be time to stop.

 

There is no point in damaging your mental health and happiness over stock photography - nobody will thank you for it.
