Just received an email from Videoblocks to opt in for Enterprise.  Sounds like an extended license type situation for large production companies to purchase footage for unlimited views and such.  Contributors will make 60% instead of the %100 commission from their normal marketplace, but they say the sale prices will be high enough that we will never make less on an Enterprise sale then we would in marketplace.  Seems like a good deal to me, I opted in.  Any thoughts on this??

"They say the sale prices will be high enough that we will never make less on an Enterprise sale then we would in marketplace"

However, they could just lower the marketplace prices.

Didn't get an email (yet), is it invite only?

This is true... Hopefully this will bring them more money so they don't need to.  I think they've been trying to find a creative way of making more money without loosing their 100% commission to contributors.  This seems like a good idea.  We'll see...

It is worth a try.

I have far more respect for Videoblocks than some of the other agencies who say they 'care about their contributors' and yet we just make less and less because of their continual greedy tricks.

So far Videoblocks has put their wallet where their mouth is and supported contributors.

Could result in some extra $$$, yes.

But I really don't like how they use the term "copyright-free" in their marketing: http://enterprise.videoblocks.com

It's like they don't understand the fundamental basics of the assets they're licensing... That's a bit scary. I know they most likely do, and it's just an enticing marketing term, but that doesn't make it right.

Wow, yeah....unbelievable....

LOL, giving up your constitutional rights, do they really think that is legally binding? :D I'm not a lawyer, but even I can tell it's not possible to give up those rights.
