Hello,

I recently applied to become a video contributor for Artlist and Storyblocks. Yesterday, I received approval from Artlist. These agencies are known for being the best earners for Everest (Artlist) and odesigns (Storyblocks).

Furthermore, they also have a high rejection rate for new applicants. So, I see this as a great opportunity. But, I am worried that my content might be susceptible to download and misuse by thieves. For anyone who has contributed to either of these sites, how have you dealt with this? Is this a cause for concern, or am I just being overly cautious?

I shoot niche content that is underrepresented on most stock agencies. By uploading to Artlist, will I lose sales on other platforms like AS, SS, and Pond5, where I presently also upload?

What else should I keep in mind as an Artlist video contributor?

If you have contributed to either of these sites, please share your experience with me. I would appreciate your advice and suggestions. If you have not contributed to either of these sites, please abstain from commenting. I acknowledge that everyone has strong opinions about these sites. However, opinions based on experience are more valuable than those based on assumptions.

Thank you

Best regards,

Daniel

What kind of content is this?

It is unclear what kind of content needs to be filmed in order for the author to be accepted into Artlist as a contributor.
For example, with Storyblocks everything is clear, you need to shoot models of different skin colors. And you need many different models.

If you upload to any of those unlimited download sites, you should be ready some thieves somewhere in the world will download and upload your clips as their own by tweaking a little bit.  It's just how it is.

True, but they usually dont even tweak the content, i had hundreds of my videos stolen and resold and some thieves even copied my titles and keywords. And at one of this agencies you can even steal content without paying a single cent for it.

I've noticed on other posts that you regularly find fraudulent accounts with stolen videos. What tool do you use for reverse video searching?
