Shutterstock, as I understand it, was going to pay once every six months. Will pond5 pay every month?

Shutterstock:
"How will I get paid?
Earnings from datasets and downloads of AI-generated content produced with integrated technology on our platform are pooled in a collective fund and will be distributed every 6 months. If you have generated earnings from the fund, you will see those posted in your Earnings Summary, in the "Contributor Fund" column. Payouts will happen every 6 months and will include both earnings from data deals as well as royalties from AI-generated content created with the tool on our platform."

And what does Pond5 pay for, for a photo or for a video? How to understand?

I have just opted out my exclusive contents. Too bad I did not know the option earlier.

I have all inclusive. But Shutterstock doesn't pay me anything for this. Why? Pond5 pays, but Shutterstock doesn't.

Are you one of the people who disables their portfolio then enables it again, then disables it and waits a month and enables again? SSTK may have licensed the data during the time when you had disabled your port?

No one did in either case. We were not told until after SS used the images. We were not notified until after P5 had allowed the use.

Nice trick is, once they have used all they need in the first round, any of us opting out will most likely be for only new images? Often known as closing the barn door after the livestock has escaped. We got pennies, they have used them and we can opt out. If they are already used, what are we opting out of?

No, I never turn anything off, I always have everything on. I always need extra money.

Opt out? I just got $85... My footage isn't going to change the world, nor is it going to slow anything down if I opted out. I'll take the money thanks

really funny - same people who whine about not getting paid for using their images now complain when someone tries to pay them?

Well there goes that theory.  :-X There were a couple of people over the years who thought that disabling their port would make things sell better on others, or that when they enabled, it would make them somehow get re-ranked. Neither made any sense at all.

Another guess is, SS the first distribution, was only images and not video. While P5 was everything. I don't know that, just a guess why someone with thousands of videos wouldn't get one use from SSTK.

To answer another question that came up. SS said they will be paying every 6 months.

Why we are doing this: Generative content would not be possible without contributing artists, and Shutterstock believes contributors should be rewarded. To recognize our artists contributions, we will be paying royalties for the role artists IP plays in the development of generative AI models trained on Shutterstocks library as well as for ongoing licensing activity of AI-generated content by Shutterstocks content generation tool.

How it works: The Contributor Fund will release earnings every 6 months, and will include contributor earnings for:

    Data deals with companies like OpenAI or LG AI Research for AI model training
    Ongoing revenue from customer licensing of AI-generated content created using Shutterstock's AI content generation tool

For data deals, a portion of the contract value is paid to all contributors involved, distributed proportionally by the number of assets and metadata a contributor has included in the deal. For generative licensing, a portion of every customer license for generative content is paid out to the contributors whose content was used to train that particular model (eg. OpenAI or LG AI Research). Generative licensing also distributes earnings proportionally by the number of assets and metadata a contributor had included in the original data deal.


P5 has said nothing about how often. (that I've seen) If you click the FAQ on P5 for AI Datasets and use, it takes us to the SS page about the use and compensation.

Personal opinion / best guess is every six months, just like SS.

Find out after July 1st.

Yes, that's right, it's still early for SS. Unlike Pond5, I also have a lot of photos on SS.
I asked pond5 how often, they said once every 3 months. So I got money for Pond5 in April.

Now the question is how long artificial intelligence will pay me. Or at one time recycle the entire portfolio.  :-\

LOL and once they have taken every image, how many new ones will they be using in the next round? Just like someone else pointed out, if they use all the images and then allow an opt out, how does that help any of us, after the fact? SS and P5 have already taken what they wanted.

Interesting that P5 says every three months. Doesn't help me, but still interesting.

Is this a monthly payout or how it goes?

The same as the SS undertook to pay every 6 months. I asked Pond how often I would receive payments for artificial intelligence, I was told that every 3 months. But if they have already raked everything out, then I probably wont.

I wonder if those data earnins are a once per year earnings or an every month thing?
