Adobe Stock / Re: Fotolia cuts commissions again
« on: January 25, 2011, 14:50 »
I think the problem is not only low commission, Main problem is that with these steps Fotolia, Istock and other agencies who decide to make such action will Kill Mickrostock business.
What I mean?  As many others contributors who are affected from last changes in royalty structure I decide to stop uploading. But there are many other people mostly from poor countries and the "third world" who dont really care about the price, they can live with 100$ per month and that is Ok for them. So, if few contributors stop uploading, many other will come - but lets be honest competition will slow, quality of images will drop, therefore Byers will disappear and this excellent opportunity for graphic artists and photographers - mickrostock will crash.

I have few ideas about what we can do about Fotolia (and Istock) greed.

- Make petition

- Ask directly top contributors to join Us (not only complaining in forums that they did not support us)

- Write a "Open Letter" to Fotolia administration about our opinion.
What I mean when I say "Open letter" - a letter addressed not only to Fotolia, but to buyers and partners of Fotolia, they should know whats going on - that many contributors stop serving Fotolia and they (buyers) can find new content created by these contributors in Dreamstime, Shutterstock and other agencies with fair attitude to people. This letter can be published in all possible places in internet personal blogs, forums and etc.

- Make photo/design contest with subject "Fotolia greed" and spread images all over the net

- and off course stop uploading  :)
