Thanks everyone.  That makes more sense getting buyers to purchase an EL rather than billing them $0.01 for each reproduction. They should get rid of that in the agreement.

Sean, I've added the 'other reproductions' column as a catch all for anything that's not printed material because other agents list them separately. I know you can't measure video but if I change it to 'zero', then what if if a buyer wants to send out 25,000 promotional emails or a promotional CD or DVD or have it on software that incorporates the image? They can definitely be measured. Wouldn't that be part of the standard license?  I thought it would be.  If you don't think so, if you think all those things are part of an EL, even for quantities less than 500,000, then I'll change it to 'zero'.

Has anyone heard of any agency enforcing this?  I'm just curious how the stock agency would know if their buyer has reproduced something over a certain number of times?  :-\
I remember SS took legal action against a calendar company that hadn't purchased EL's.  Several of us here received a compensation payment that SS passed on to us.

I would imagine that FT has given such 'breadth' in standard license usage because they couldn't be bothered enforcing anything anyway. They got theirs when the subscription was paid.

@Grafix04:

What exactly do you mean by "number of seats" in your table?

The number of users within an organization that can use the image.  Most micros offer a multi-seat or multi-user EL license however Fotolia offers an unlimited number of seats in their standard license.  So buyers who would normally purchase a multi-seat EL license at other sites, can purchase it cheap on Fotolio on the standard license.

Wasted effort since it can't even be edited.  Shortly after I wrote all that my account was deleted.  Either I was hacked or I was booted by admin.  Twice I asked the question, twice I was ignored. 

But you're welcome!

I don't delete accounts. ever.
Where did you ask the question? And what question.
Possibly I can merge the deleted acct. and your acct. if you want.

just thought I'd add.. I do delete account when they are clearly from spammers.

That means I was hacked?  I mentioned it many months ago in one of the Pinterest threads and then later in different Pinterest thread (I think).  I can't even check my history to pinpoint it but I'm sure people remember it happening.  It was a little after lagereek lost his account.  The second time, I deleted it myself because you had deleted my posts and since my questions never were answered about the first deletion, I assumed it was you who deleted my account.

From memory, I remember just before I was deleted or the last time I was signed in before being deleted, my screen froze and I had to reboot.  I'm assuming someone else logged in with my name at that point and kicked me out?  I came back to the site to read but I didn't log in.  I didn't notice my account was gone till after a day or two, when Sean and maybe Cathy asked what happened to me. 

If my account was hacked and deleted, is it safe to merge them?  There are actually three under grafix04 that need merging.  Is that possible?  To be honest, I'm a little paranoid signing into this site since it happened and have beefed up my security on my PC.

Who knows.. something strange happened.  If it wasn't you and it wasn't me then it has to be a bug or a hack... neither which seem that likely either.

If you want to get a hold of me, you should email me at mail@microstockgroup.com or send me a PM on this site.  Putting a post in the thread can easily be missed. 

I prefer not to merge accounts and it means I have to dive into the database and there is always a risk of screwing things up.  Perhaps we'll just leave things as they are.  Let me know if you have any more problems (.. and contact me in a PM or email.. not a thread)

Will do, I've now noted the email.  Thanks for confirming it wasn't you.

I think this is a little outdated. For example, I know Depositphotos changed the license agreement awhile ago and needs to be updated as it appears they no longer limit the number of copies and possibly seats: http://depositphotos.com/license.html. I think Bigstock might have changed since as well.
