Recently, Ive been submitting some videos to DT with Stocksubmitter. And I just happened to click on one of those videos that had been accepted into my port. That video, and all of my other commercial videos, are marked with "Sell the rights." I quickly disabled that option from all the files that I submitted with Stocksubmitter.

When you upload content normally to DT (via their web uploader) I note that files are marked with "Sell the rights" as default which is ridiculous. I'm sure that the majority of contributors have no intention of selling the rights to most of their images. I should have realised that the same thing would happen with files that were submitted with Stocksubmitter. It was only by chance that I decided to click on one of these uploaded video files in my port and I made the unfortunate discovery.

And then I remembered that I had also uploaded videos with Stocksubmitter last year and for all that time, they had been marked with "Sell the rights" and I never realised until now.

It is not due to stock submitter, few time back dreamstime system auto updated everything to sell the rights.
You can though bulk disable it I guess.

Yea I know it has nothing to do with Stocksubmitter. Though regardless, it still happens (probably with any kind of upload system or method.) With a service, like Stocksubmitter, it's not a case of 'set and forget.' One still needs to remember to edit the files afterwards in DT and deselect that selling of the rights option.

I didn't know there was a bulk disable option.

I think you are missing some option here.
Mine is permanently disabled and I usually get this email from them:

Your file appears to be suitable for logo usage. Since this usage is allowed only under the exclusive rights license SR-EL, we strongly recommend you enable the SR-EL (SR-EL). This way, you ensure your file attains its maximum sale potential and sells for the highest earning license.

It doesn't matter which upload method you are using.

You set up Stocksubmitter wrong! In the agency settings you can selects if you want to sell the rights or not.

I don't recall seeing that option in Stocksubmitter. I'll have to take a look.
