Btw, since rates at all other sites are so abysmally low and insulting that it demanded creation of a new site, why would you continue to upload, and in fact not remove all images from all sites.

I've been asking this since day 1...

is no one wondering when he'll open up his site, take on contributors and go head to head with SS and IS?

If he did that he would be regarded as a competing agency and would therefore run the risk of having his accounts closed at most agencies.

The title of this thread is now somewhat misleading as Yuri has uploaded plenty of new content, images, video and audio, to IS within the last month.

How can he sell from his own site and still be selling on istock? I thought doing both was not possible with the IS artist supply agreement.

that doesnt make any sense once the fact of contributing to a stock agency doesnt mean you lose the rights of selling your work outside there (unless you are selling exclusively I guess), not to mention we are talking about his own website not even an agency but perhaps even that is allowed, at least there is a istock contributor (indie like Yuri) running an agency and I believe he havent had any issues

Is does makes sense. When I read my agreement with them it clearly said you can sell from other RF sites but not from your own. How can he do it? I admire him for doing it I just want to know how it is possible.

sure it is possible, Yuri wouldnt make such a ridiculous mistake, like I have said an istock contributor is running an agency for over a year and nothing have happened

It says that in the independent contract? Seems odd that someone can sell anyplace except their own site. Please do a cut and paste of that part from the contract (with the section numbers) so I can see where it is?

And as they say at places I've worked... "there are always exceptions".  ;)

I've just read it again and it seems you are correct. I can't find it in the current contract. I'm going from memory of what it said serval years ago.

I only have the exclusive ASA saved from that time not the non exclusive but I'm sure it use to say not from your own site.

I didn't think he would be that stupid. Seems I've been living in la la land. You're living the past man!

It's easy. Peopleimages.com is a separate company that has "contracted" Yuri to submit and sell his work. As an istock contributor, you can do it too. First, create and incorporate a business. Call it "Acme Images, Inc." for example. Next, Acme Images will purchase your images on a work for hire basis for lets say, one dollar. Acme Images will then own and sell your images on it's website. Now you're still an exclusive istock contributor who also does freelance work on the side. In this case, Acme Images is purchasing your images outright to sell on it's website. As a shareholder in the independent company you will also be taking a share of those profits.

In any case, even the exclusive ASA is bent for some, who have had images ingested as exclusive iStock images (usually as Agency) yet can still sell from their own sites.
If the plebs did it, that would, of course, be different.

It's all irrelevant, since he isn't exclusive, and the ASA never said anything about a matter like that.  It was just general consensus.

If you are an exclusive contributor, you can't upload to other sites, but Yuri is a non-exclusive iStock contributor. You can find Yuri's collection on several online microstock agencies, including Shutterstock, Fotolia, Dreamstime, 123rf, Alamy, Veer, DepositPhotos, Photodune, Crestock, Pixmac, Canstock and many, many more. In fact you will often be able to find images that are not available through iStock on other sites because of the upload limit imposed by iStock.

PeopleImages.com is an agency selling only Yuri's images, and there are currently no plans of accepting contributors in similar ways as is done on Shutterstock/iStock/Dreamstime/Fotolia/etc.

You're right in theory, but it is very unlikely that iStock would not reach to this if you are an exclusive contributor. However, as Yuri is not exclusive with iStock, he can sell his images on pretty much where he wishes to.

Just because I'm not constantly commenting, it doesn't mean I'm not here. ;)
Have a great further discussion. It's always very amusing to read.
