A UK newspaper called the Daily M*il (Yuck, a right-wing tabloid) used to buy RM editorial pics from Alamy. They were notorious for not reporting re-uses and had regularly to be chased for payment, and indeed yesterday I received payment for 21 unreported usages online, going back two years, of one particular image which had been used over 40 times in total. Low payment per image under the UKNS (but still 10x each what I'd have got from SS just once), but yay for RM.

Anyway, they now buy from SS rather than Alamy. I see that their print run in Dec 2015 was nearly 1.5 million. SS require an enhanced licence for print runs over 500K. So, are people seeing loads of enhanced images from sales there and on their sister free publication The M*tro (1.3 print run daily)? Or have they got a 'special deal' which doesn't require them?

No ELs for me thus they are getting the special deal on my images  :(

My last EL at SS was 2 years ago, I think it speaks for itself.

They will have an Enterprise account so all sales will be reported as SODs, which could mean more than the price for an EL for various reasons or they could get a deal.  I have had a few 12 and 14 dollar SODs in recent months, which makes me suspect that the Enterprise Team are discounting ELs, we will never know for sure.

Bet your bottom dollar those ejits are giving the DM bargain basement prices and they are still in financial difficulties because they don't know how to price things properly.

The DM is a right wing reactionary rag anyway
