The word "unlimited" makes me uneasy.  Has there been an announcement about this?  (I mean - an email or contributor's notification?)

I haven't seen anything - and I just went to look at the site, but as the change isn't in effect yet, all the prices and terms are still for 10,000 copies.

But unless they're upping the price (I'm guessing they aren't), P-EL and W-EL are 50 credits each - so we get from 25% to 45% depending on the level. That's a lot of rights for not a lot of cash to us. Looking back, I see a range of $8.50 to $25.88 for my ELs

I also see that it's been ages since I got an EL.

Effectively this is another price & royalty cut - more rights for the same money. Problem is that I think I'd have to edit images one by one to turn off ELs - there's no batch editor and no overall opt out. I might just turn it off for all the level 5 images just to make a point.

Overall it seems to be a waste of effort for DT - their problems go way deeper than EL pricing - so they don't send out notice to contributors, which is rude, and I suspect they'll derive no sales bump from the move anyway...

Thank you - I had no idea that was available. And I apparently had inadvertently omitted ELs on 8 of my portfolio items (I'm assuming at some point the default changed or I mis-clicked)!
