Can we use YouTube for commercial purposes?

Here are two more little graphs.  One displaying the top performing site according to RPI, and one of the number of photographers in each income bracket.

Thanks Tyler, This is great stuff.

If you divide the average gross annual earnings ($10076.68)  by average number of images online (1156.4) you get an average of earnings of $8.71 per image per year.  I have no idea if this is a valid analysis but I find it interesting.

Yeah, that is probably not too far off, but the people with really great portfolios are getting much higher $/pic/year than that, and the people with 10 crappy pictures are getting 0 $/pic/year

The problem with averages in microstock is that the playing field is so spread out, it doesn't really work.  People hear of the $1,000,000 istock is giving to it's contributors every week then think, yeah well it is going to 100,000 photographers - that is only $10 each.. HA what a rip off.  What they don't realize is that a small % of the photographers are taking the majority of the $1,000,000 giving them a decent paycheck.

Yeah, I figure it is the old 80/20 power curve with 80% of the earnings going to 20% of the contributors.
