I just signed up for cutcaster and should be bringing about 1000 files over there this week,  my first batch of about 200 files is already up but I opted, by default, for no extended licensing.  I couldn't find any info in the FAQ or TOS, except for a statement that said something like extended licenses could be used by buyers to limit whether these files were sold elsewhere.  I am theoretically fine with that as long as the price is right but I would like to read the extended license agreement before allowing all of my files to be sold as such.  Where can I find more info on this?  Thanks

Don't worry you have to have sales in order to worry about extended licences.

I'm on CC as well and I didn't opt in for E.L.'s either for two reasons:
1. No specifics on what exactly the EL can be used for compared to regular RF
2. No options for a corresponding higher price for an E.L.

iStock has a clear, informative system to explain the ELs you get there. It's one of the features of their site which is really well done IMO. The only problem I have had with their system is that I don't get enough ELs ;)

But when I get one I like how they tell me exactly what rights were sold, how much they charged, and how much I got paid. I just look at the list my ELs and click on each and a window opens which gives me the information.

It's been so long since I got an EL at SS that I don't remember how it works. Since they started ODs I have seen several people say that ELs have dried up. Maybe it's coincidence.

 I think the best solution for growth is exactly EL, for pricing model like has Cutcaster...

lol, too true. On a day when I felt particularly generous I uploaded to CC, zym and yay. All doing very badly for me but cc is the one with zero sales. The other two at least got me one each!

Thanks John but that's okay. I want to remain anonymous on this forum so I won't be pointing you to my portfolio.
Rest assured that my keywords are fine. The dials under my name should testify to that.
In any case I use a professional Keywording service now.
