Got a mail today motioning from Alamy that they continue to support RM despite Getty deciding to pull the plug. The mail is below, nice to know Alamy wants contributors to also earn

Is Rights-Managed licensing dead?

Not according to Alamy.

There's been lots of discussion in recent weeks about the future of Rights-Managed licensing. Alamy have no plans to discontinue offering RM images and will continue to offer photographers a choice to license their photos as Rights-Managed or Royalty-Free.

This means with Getty out of the way the RM sales will fall into the laps of the agencies still willing to sell RM rights.
Even though RF has made a big time encroachment into the RM sales, there are still businesses that are willing to stay with RM licenses for some of their projects, and I think (hope) this bodes some good news for the likes of Alamy

Yup, hope this pushes up the business coming to good agencies like Alamy

One year here and still don't understand RM picures. All my pictures are RF on Alamy.

Your RM are exclusive on Alamy?

Alamy is taking a good approach with their hybrid RF/RM licenses depending on buyers' needs.

I support them even if they drive me crazy with their passive approach to those suspicious Personal Usage licenses.
