i was wondering why only Alamy provides RM. is it because the others here are micro sites and Alamy is more or less somewhere near mid stock?
if price is the factor to distinguish micro from mid, then shouldn't Cutcaster be providing RM too.
or is pricing irrelevant to classify a micro site?

(your expert insights welcome here, thanks in advance)

I guess it's pricing that defines a micro site.  :)

Other sites also offer RM, such as MyLoupe.  FP did, apparently is not anymore, although I understand it can be done if asked.

I think it costs more in admin for a site to deal with RM, so it wont work with microstock.

To the OP - The primary reason for RM licensing is to track usage and to be able to provide a history of usage. It really gas nothing to do with the pricing of the actual image. Buyers pay a premium to have usage histories available to them.

You need to do some reading on RM licensing. Here is something I picked up on a very quick search that will hopefully help clarify some things for you

I find it funny that the Mid-Stock/MacroStock sites often have rather arcane (old) upload and image requirements, than those found on MicroStock sites.  Usually no ftp uploading; upsizing to a minimum file size (50mb); only accept from certain cameras.

It seems crowdsourcing microstock sites are ahead of the game.
