bobsy Posted November 30, 2015 Share Posted November 30, 2015 A while ago, I removed the Alamy link from my website, preferring to try and get a better price by licencing images directly. My sales at Alamy suffered a slump, so you can draw your own conclusions from that. Within the last week, I decided to add the link again, just to see what would happen. A couple of days later, up pops a sale for the grand sum of $19.71, see details below. Country: WorldwideUsage: Personal useMedia: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home useStart: 28 November 2015End: 28 November 2020 I have contacted member services regarding this sale, as it looks to me like someone wanting a print. I'm pretty sure anyone that sells prints of their work, and me included, would never send out a high-res image for someone to print themselves. Unless of course it was for a decent fee, and took into account that the image could be printed multiple times. My question is, shouldn't this type of use fall under 'Novel use'? Which I opted out of as soon as I had the chance. If it doesn't fall under this use, then there really needs to be some kind of 'opt out'. I didn't sign up with Alamy to sell prints. I can do this myself. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
