Yes, I've been using it for years.  I've given up on the American one - I'm in Canada.
I just got my DACS payout of $587 last week.  My Access payback was only $294.

Thanks, I do the payback every year. I was more looking at the copyright licensing service (which sounds a bit like an agency, they license the work for you and take 25%)

I have read more into it and it seems to really be for people in the more artistic side of the market, rather than commercial (like me). Could be useful for some on here.

OK, that's something different.
They say: "If an agent or image library already licenses your artistic copyright, then this would conflict with our Copyright Licensing service. Only one organisation can license and negotiate the reproduction of your work." so I don't think it applies to us.

But we do not license our copyright with agencies? We just license images. The copyright stays with us.

"What Is Copyright Licensing?
A copyright license is an agreement that allows a person or entity who holds the copyright (the licensor) to assign (or transfer) the copyright to another (the licensee). "

That's not exactly what is happening with microstock?
Or am I misunderstanding something here?

Are you eligible?

    Are you a visual artist?
    Do you own the copyright in your artworks?
    Can you confirm you've not granted exclusive rights to anyone else?


If you answered yes to all three questions, then you're eligible for our copyright licensing service.
And as long as you are not in an exclusive program with any agency, you have not granted them exclusive rights.
