"Dreamstime Introduces Unlimited Extended Licenses - Users can Reproduce Unlimited Copies of Print or Web Images

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dreamstime, the world's largest community in stock photography, announced today it made changes to its Extended Licenses by allowing users to produce unlimited copies with purchased media. Previously, customers purchased extended licenses for print or web usage of an image and were restricted by limits on the number of copies they could reproduce, for example for t-shirts, on-demand printed items, or e-cards.

Extended Licenses from Dreamstime are available with either credits or through one of the flexible subscription offerings. The new change went into effect March 1, 2016 and also to Extended License purchases made within the past thirty days.

"Every change we make to our stock image services is customer centric and designed to fit the widest array of client needs," said Serban Enache, CEO and co-founder, Dreamstime. "By expanding our Extended Licenses to unlimited copies, our millions of customers have yet another option to choose from. They no longer need to buy the print or web license again just to produce their needed number of copies. Because simplicity is best, they buy the EL once, and then can satisfy all of their print on-demand needs and electronic image requirements. It's just the latest example of Dreamstime's commitment to the customer which has positioned us as the leading stock image firm."

The Web Usage Extended License applies to electronic items that are for resale, such as web templates, screensavers, e-cards or PowerPoint presentations. The Print Usage Extended License covers physical items for resale, including the right to use the images for t-shirts, mugs, posters, and other similar promotional marketing items.

I would think that might be a violation of our contract, since we never agreed to it.  Anything sold in the 30 days prior would be under a limited license as far as our end of it?

Thanks, PhotoBomb, turned mine off too. I think 50 credits is way too little money paid for the amount of rights granted by the license agreement. Might rethink that if Dreamstime changes the prices to a fairer deal for photographers!

Extended license sales on DT are not frequent for me. Even though, I am uncomfortable giving customers unlimited print run for such a low price. Here are examples of my recent EL sales on Dreamstime. Looks like for as little as $13.20 someone can have unlimited print run with my images. This is not acceptable to me, so I disabled the ELs as well.

I did when they announced that this was coming as of March 1st.

As almost everything has dried up (for me) on DT in the last few months it's an easy call to make. Even if they "punish" those who opt out with lower search position,  the drop won't hurt anything like as much as it would have in the past

Cant imagine anyone aware of the change not opting out.

They really are the Titanic of agencies, 'iceberg, what iceberg?'
 
The reviewing too seems to have deteriorated in the last few months. Not very picky about image quality but image is too niche is a bit of a joke. Other than reviewers having no clue about important subject areas like architecture, if they are so smart at picking what sells, why are earnings plummeting and why do they have a  hasnt sold in 3 years standard email?

Because of changes like this, you still have to monitor it, because of dodgy partnerships you might not be aware of, because it might get sold to the Chinese.  That's off the top of my head, do you really need the hassle if it ain't earning?

You can opt out of partnerships at DT (I did that years ago). If it gets sold, we'll all know. And I didn't say it wasn't earning, just that earnings had fallen dramatically from what they were. ELs were few and far between, but once opted out, no further monitoring is needed.

Good to have the opt out, but Rinder is right.  DT should lower their payout amount.  Their sales dropped so much that $100 is not reasonable anymore.

for the way they have been going 10 bucks would be more like it, since ss has it down to 30.
ss i am sure has paid off 90% each month, while these guys are sitting on a lot of other ppl's money...
even at 10-90 dollars a piece

I used to get ELs on Dt from time to time. Last one was in February, which was a P-EL and netted me 15,77$.
I only used to manually activate ELs for images in levels 3, 4 and 5, because in lower levels the contributor share is just pathetic.

Now I deactivated ELs for all of my images.

P.S. I just checked my earnings from extended licences on DT. Got one P-EL sale on a level 5 image last year, which was paid with 50 credits and only netted me 8.10$. I would say not much to lose by deactivating ELs :)

Dt is still living in the stone age. The site interface is older than hot water and the upload process,  image by image is a big joke. Not to mention the stupid reasons for rejections.
They are set on the road to hit rock bottom :|

Might not be a coincidence. For people who haven't opted out yet you may want to do some test searches for some of your images. Then opt out and check if your search position changed. It would make sense that they would give search position preference to images that have the most license options and revenue potential.

I think it's coincidence. I opted out Feb 23rd when they first announced this and I've seen no obvious change in sales since. There are days (particularly weekends) without sales (which never used to happen before things tanked last year) but there seems to be no increase in that since Feb 23

yeah could really be a conincidence - I opted out yesterday and after not having sales for a few days before opting out i had two this morning.

The license controlled how may copies they could make. They took away that limit and buyers can now print your work indefinitely with one single purchase.

Yes i understand... they bought the photo and the licence told that you can use it for 100 times (example) but was something stopping them use it for 200 times? Is someone whi can verify this?

I am just asking... I don't understand how it works this really...

There is very little apart from buyer honesty which stops any sort of misuse, whether using files bought without ELs in ways which require ELs, giving credit to the author for files used editorially (which some sites require, but is often ignored), or 'sensitive use', which certain agencies forbid and certain others require buyers to pay more for.
Also some sites make it difficult for a buyer to know that they are supposed to buy extended licences for certain purposes.

i think that is the problem ... ie. many users, or even myself... , do not even understand what EL is about.
i believe those 28 to 102 dollar commission for single dl are the only honest buyers for
such usage. which we all suddenly find vastly missing these days for many months already
with ss.

back to dt, i once found a book with my image on the front cover, to which i don't even remember
getting an EL from dt. it's been years since, and i still have not known of getting an EL
and i still see that book cover on amazon.
so far as i know, i think i got paid same as a single dl from dt for this. i know it is from dt
because it's the only place i have a dl for that image .

it all still goes back to the word, "royalty free", which to many still means, "use without paying".

DT is one of the agencies which doesn't make it easy for a buyer to know that there is such a thing as extended licences, they have to know about it to think to look for it. However, even if they find the Terms of Use page, I don't see that they have to buy an EL for a book cover:
http://www.dreamstime.com/terms

I know that iStock doesn't require it (I have several book covers that I have randomly happened to find online).
SS doesn't seem to need it: http://www.shutterstock.com/license-comparison
You also have to make an effort to find info about ELs on Fotolia, but they also don't require an EL for a book cover.

BTW, although I think that RF was an extremely bad idea from the suppliers' position, RM doesn't guarantee that a file won't be misused.
I have an RM file on Alamy which has been licensed 22 times, but online alone I found over 50 separate uses, and that was up til two months ago, 45 of them different uses from one company over two websites, yet each sale, under the UKNS, was for a 'single article only'. Still waiting for that to be resolved.

could it also be that some of them picked the image up from someone who paid for it???
i was thinking especially for those sites that put the image in a large size. what's there to stop
someone else to right click save the image and then insert it in their own site???

i guess there is really no guarantee of who paid and who didn't. .. unless there is some sort of a
serial # for usage or whatever. but that would be too troublesome...huh?

Yes, of course, this is always the case. That's why you can often find dozens of hundreds of uses of a file online when you've only sold a very few licences.
In this particular case, however, at least 23 uses have been unreported/unpaid uses from one specific company  (who have a history of under-reporting) - who possibly don't keep records of which of their files are RF and which are RM (or else they're just trying to see if they can get away with it).

That would work for RM, but not at all for RF - iS do it, or at least used to do it, for exclusives, but IME they never got payments, just a takedown, which is still a result of sorts.
RM prices are falling, in general, especially with Alamy's UKNS, so again it's probably not worth the cost of investigating. However, if they would impose punitive payments (which they don't, the very opposite, in fact) for under-reporting, it would pay for the investigating and serve as a warning. Or maybe they're just too scared to tackle a large customer.

Of course it's very easy to 'take' images once they're online, and the constant social media 'share' buttons beside photos on many sites certainly give the impression that a photo is free to share, therefore to use, wherever. That's what I'd have assumed before I was in stock, at least as a non-commercial use.

ah yes, social media... theft by small-print authorization!!!
eg. fb ... users unknowingly allow fb to use their private photos, and cousins' cousins' cousins
unknowingly spread their "authorized" usage with their tagging,etc.
the plague is so subtle that before you know it, your family's private album is proliferating all over
the internet... and fb flickr,etc... churn in the bucks from ads.

i see the agencies going that way too, starting with dt who was the first to use fb "like",
and then there is the "donate" button, or you auto-donate by not responding to their email
to take down your non-sellers.

are we not surprised agencies do nothing about theft. even social media encourages theft
by having you authorize them to be able to use your photos you add to fb, flickr,etc.. right???
and then there 500px who is still haven't decided if they want to
be a stock agency or a social media,...

i have a question....
Before this change... it was someone that could control how many copies the buyer makes?
I have an image that sold multiple times in a row as an extended download 1-2 years ago. I guess the buyer wanted a certain number of copies, which was not covered by a single extended licence. Sure, the buyer must have been a honest one, but I also have the feeling people buying extended licences are more "serious" about their business then the average buyers.

Compared to the unlimited usage Dreamstime introduced recently, back then me (and also the agency) got 4-6 times as much as if the sale would have happen now.

I'm staying opted out of extended downloads on DT, unless they drop the unlimited number of copies (which I don't believe).

Not to mention their big push with Pinterest, which is when I bailed from DT when they wouldn't provide an opt-out. (other agencies also use the Pinterest model) Because even if someone does purchase a license for an image, it gets repinned hundreds of thousands of time...free. Not to mention watermarked versions.

It's pretty sad when I've earned more on Canstock than I have on Dreamstime so far this month.

WOW. I've noticed an uptick in sales for the last three months, like $50 a month from $20.  Wonder if this is part of their new model. If so, good job Duncan.

Opted out of all EL options.

I've opted out of all DT options, they can rot.

Tragic what has happened to DT. Im opting Out also. I wrote them last month asking to Please drop the min Payout to 50 Bucks instead of 100. They said no. well...Im saying no to EL's. such a shame. It was a monster site for me at one time. I have 250 Images in the to be submitted area. Just zero Motivation to spend the time tagging and submitting them. Never thought I would say that about DT.

Well DT just got dropped in to the "Do not upload to" category the number of agencies I submit to is getting smaller and smaller.

I have more of those myself, DT was already one of them.
