Hi Magnum,

 That was very well handled. Others on this site would have thrown a lot of money away with their philosophy, Bravo for playing the game so well.

Best,
Jonathan

Are you sure?  Maybe he should have asked for $10000!

Are there any posts missing? For how much is it selling now? I don't get it!

Jonathan, what was handled really well? I'm not sure if Magnum came to a conclusion of what exactly to do.

I wish Magnum the best and hopefully we hear back about what happened.

I think this is the answer:

It seems I will get $2000 for a customized wood sign similar to the Istock photo. They will get full right to it, exept to resell it as a photo.

Thanks for that. That is a nice deal. Hopefully everything goes smooth sailing from here.  8)

I thought these things happend every day.  Apparently not:)

I hope Cclapper got a word doc that I can make some changes to and Im ready to proceed.  I feel no need to make it any harder.

They can use the photo for all eternity and Im happy with it. What could happen?  I mean we sell photos for .25 that all ends up on heroturk. Can it be worse?

Thanks for all help :)

Make sure you get your money before sending them the full res version. Sometimes it's hard to get them to pay up after the fact. Keep that in mind.

This relates to what is call the call girl principle which states that the value of a service declines after that service has been performed.

Well, you can't take it out of circulation, since you've already sold it.

If they're willing to pay 2 grand for a ( photo or illustration ?) you lucked out.

Yeah, really. If I had more clients like that, I'd spend a lot less time working on stock. Most people that contact me don't even want to pay 2k for a children's book.

One buyer contacted me lately. They asked for a bigger resolution of medals with ribbons collage isolated on white, that I downsized on Istock. I finally uploaded the full resolution ribbon for them and linked the medal set image. I hope they have fun merging them together

Haha, Yeah sometimes (mostly men) does things they regret exactly the same second theyre ready. Its like 99% of their brain all of a sudden returns and realizes:  What was that good for... ??? 

Hopefully since this is gonna be their company logo, they wont regret it in a rush

I sent you a sitemail here. Found the Word doc and can email to you. You will have to do some customizing, as my contract was not for transferring copyright.

They can't use it as a logo.  Period.  There's no way they can register it as a mark if it has been sold RF.

They can USE it as they wish. Even as a logo. BUT they can not REGISTER it..

Thanks again for the doc.

OK. I spoke to someone one time who meant copyright transfer when they said full rights, so it is good to clarify.

At some level it amounts to the same thing as far as future earnings go. Is that full rights for ever?

It is full rights forever, yes.   And I might have earned more in microstock over a few years, but it could also be nothing.  Who knows??
But I have enough similar images uploaded already, so this is nothing to think about...

Deal closed now and money on the bank.  I took bits and pieces from the contracts I got from friends here and some I found out myself.   Tiny easy to read contract. Customer must be pleased to not get a giant contract.

So much for that though...They send ME a two pages contract with amounts of $1000000 here and there. working conditions bla bla.  I breathed heavy one time and signed it :-[ USA...

Really glad for the sale though:)

I obviously haven't seen the contract etc but be warned sometimes you get ahead by not making a sale.

Congrats on the sale Magnum :)

Big long contracts that someone else writes with expensive clauses in them are too scary for me. Especially if you see things where they transfer liability etc onto you. Again I haven't seen the contract so obviously shouldn't speculate but have heard enough things about those types of contracts; if it is indeed such a thing. Which of course it may not be. Congrats on the good sale by the way.
