Sorry for my bad English, I hope you can understand...

 

Let's say I have a image on sale at Alamy, under a RM license. According to Alamy's Contributor contract (point 2.2) I can sell that image through other agency websites as well, using the SAME license type.

 

The question is: do you think I can, at the same time, distribute that image under a Creative Commons NON-COMMERCIAL license and redirect to Alamy people who want to buy a COMMERCIAL license of that image?

Excellent question, and the answer is NO!

 

(And my personal opinion is to avoid offering Creative Commons licensing for one's work.)

Why would anyone pay for a licence if they can get the image for nothing? The CC commercial definition is very narrow I don't think I've ever had an Alamy licence which would fall under it.

The only CC images I ever put out on Geograph are all over the place and I don't do it anymore.

That said I have collected a couple of settlements for breach of the licence by omission of credit and I am about to take down a public authority for a 5-year infringement.
