Novel Use - in or out?

Recommended Posts

Just become aware that I am neither in nor out of the Novel Use scheme. The Alamy description doesn't give much away. Any user feedback welcome.

Bryan, I signed up for Novel Use many years ago. Your post made my look it up under My Alamy in the Additional Revenue Options. It's recorded me as having signed up to the option on 19th June, 2008. Seems like yesterday.....we don't get any younger!!

I never signed up but I think I opted out when I realised you could. Mine is recorded as OUT, showing in  red, as from 16th June 2008.

I opted out almost from the beginning however I've just checked and see I'm IN and I can't change that until April 2017. Not best pleased about that. :(

In- one NU  sale in 7 years- for 83¢- so not too bothered.

I'm in.  Had a few sales over the years for about $50 total.  It's $50 I wouldn't have otherwise ....

It's maybe $150 that you could have had had you not been in, is another way of looking at it. Just saying! ;)

Thanks for the responses people. 

 

A Google search finds previous discussion, generally not too positive, and an Alamy statement that it was being withdrawn, but the choice still remains under Additional Revenue Options.

 

However, as a person in limbo, neither in nor out, there doesn't appear to be a mechanism to definitively say No until April next year.  Will I remember next April, probably not.

:-) . . . it is indeed one way of looking at it . . . but my accountant prefers a definite 50 over a maybe 150 any day

I checked out of NU several years ago. I figure that if a customer really wants an image, Alamy will find a way of licensing it. They are pretty creative that way. B)

I've been trying to remember for years!

Alrighty, we need to put it on our calendars. BIG letters. April 1st, again April 15. Maybe then we can opt out. ;):)

It should actually be possible to already activate it at least, to automatically opt out for the coming april.

(But then in April I forgot, I automatically opt out :lol:  )
