Marc2 Posted March 8, 2015 Share Posted March 8, 2015 Hi everybody, This license appears to be a new one on me and I wondered if many others had come across it: Country: Worldwide Usage: EditorialMedia: Editorial websitePlacement: Single PlacementImage Size: up to 1/2 screenStart: 01 February 2015 End: 01 February (one year. Forum won't accept twenty sixteen in numbers)In-Context Digital archival rights included in perpetuity. Right to syndicate the feature material in which the images appear via third party web properties when material is branded as per original use. As I understand it, this is a rights-managed image that is pretty much being given away as royalty free. I can't see how assigning the 'right to syndicate the feature material' helps Alamy's cause in the long run. It certainly doesn't help the photographer. It appears that the buyer can archive the images and syndicate the article for ever, long after I've gone to the other side, all for $50 of which I'll probably see £20 ish. It's not even worth getting the camera out for that... Please tell me I've mis-understood it. Have a good day! Marc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
