As a general question do you think one might have success with this?

Regards my previous question I am talking negotiations as an individual not as a group.

I think Im going to try it but I wanted to see what folks thought.

They have altered the deal. Pray they do not alter it any further.

If you have something very special that the agencies don't already have lots of, you might be able to negotiate a deal.

Given the huge size of agencies' collections, I consider the likelihood of that situation very, very low.

I am guessing that anyone that manages to get a better deal will also have some sort of non disclosure clause so it will be like fight club - the first rule is you don't talk about it. I also agree with most of what has been said before - you need something special to get a special deal.

There was a time when the highest profile contributors could do this Yuri Acurs being the obvious example. I doubt its a thing in the current climate.

A special "exclusive" shot could probably be negotiated. Donald saved from
serious head injuries by his comb-over after tripping when getting out of his
limo, comes to mind.  8)

And his special deal has become iStock Exclusive, which tells us something?

Could be, but also could be, they don't negotiate deals, because there's no reason to make a deal?

Says it all...

Plus if I had something "very special" I wouldn't be selling microstock for peanuts and chump change.

I once successfully negotiated from a life-time ban on the SS Contributor Forum to just 30days.
