Here's a new one for ya.

www.gumgum.com

Still in its infancy, but kindof interesting.  I guess its for mainly editorial photos (although they do have shots of flowers and brides).    It's a viral type of photo licensing.  They host it, websites license it, and they charge something like .20 or .25 per 1000 views.   If anyone tries to right click the photo, they get licensing information. 

I checked a few questions on their blog that they haven't responded to... like percentages.  Duh.

Not that I have any paparazzi photos... but it's interesting nonetheless.

I found them this morning and I will upload the files from my old camera, as they are too small to make much with micro sites but should be good for web use.  Will be interesting to see if this catches on.

420 photos total and the site is almost four years old?

I think I'll wait and see.  ;D

Where do you see 4 years old? It says their private policy and all the things on the blog were posted just a week ago.

Oh it's just me. The site was registered four years ago. That doesn't mean that they did anything but hold the name until now.  ;)

It's an interesting concept and their idea makes sense that people pay for images by use, not a flat one time fee. If it takes off, it's a good solution for photographers and GumGum. Whether websites will embrace paying for views is something else.

I don't see this taking off because most buyers want to edit the images that they buy.  With gumgum you have to take the image as-is, which is mostly good for editorial but not much else.

It says gumgum does not sell, and contributers are to refer customers to gumgum.
I don't think so.
