And no, Adobe was very clear. This is the EXACT text of the message:
The text said:
Quote from: Adobe
You've got X eligible assets that could earn up to X upfront if seltected for the free selection.
No one expect you thought he'd definitely get the possible maximum amount, not for photos, not for vectors and not for videos.
1. We are not in court.
2. This marketing stunt greatly offended the authors who agreed to participate. If Adobe initially planned to accept 0 or several videos from people, you need to write about it. Then most of the authors would have responded by refusing to participate in the program.
3. Are you an Adobe lawyer?

Yes the stunt was offensive, but only because they thought we contributors love to give stuff away for a measly $8 to be featured in a free collection... Oh, that's not what you meant?
No, that's not what I meant at all. I meant that it's one thing to give away 1-10 videos for $8, and another thing to give away 200-1000 videos for $8. So it makes no sense to give a few videos, but there are 1000, because. 8x1000=8000 dollars.

If 1000 videos cannot gather at least 36 downloads of $28 in a year, then yes, giving them away for $8 is an okay deal. But then you probably have some quality issues with your portfolio to worry about.
What is the size of your video portfolio? How many videos do you sell per year?
You probably did not know, but adobe takes into its free collection only the video that has not been sold even once in the last year.
Perhaps you want to say that all your videos are sold within a year. Which I highly doubt.

While they did say that, I had videos eligible for nomination that had 0, 1 and 2 sales.

me too...even videos that had 3 sales and videos uploaded within 6 months that we can consider brand new videos with a good chance to have a sale soon...
I think that adobe wants the free collection to be appealing to the viewer that's why the choose only good staff....

I have 500+ videos. And about 100 video sales I think, 7x 70, 40x 20-28 range and many below 20 all the way down to 2.80.
So they definitely did not all sell, I have a couple of strong sellers and many duds, but Adobe also nominated strong sellers that have been sold at least once this year. So giving up those videos would be a bad choice.

If out of 500+ videos you only sell 10-20 videos, and the number of these sales is 100, then 480 videos are not of high quality. It if to argue following your logic.
