But they won't need the images again. The AI places don't care, because they don't need to use the images again. Just like what they scraped from the Internet. Once the image has been used for machine learning, it is not being used again.

What I'm saying is, the six year license is for training, not use. Once the training is done... we get nothing.

They will. They will create new AI models and these models will need the images once again. How do you want to do that without these images? The new models will increase amount of parametres, will be trained to do more stuff that the old model was not trained to, you need these images to train it on. You cannot just use the previous model that will miraculously use the previously trained information in a completely new algorithm with new features. You do not need it for fine-tuning the algorithm, but in the six-year period, there will be at least 3, maybe even more totally new generations of models trained completely from scratch.

That's good. I hope they do some new training and use something of mine. I haven't had a cent from the contributor fund since last year.

I have no video on SS anymore. That could explain things.

I am joining from Turkey. I last received a participant fund payment in May 2023. I didn't buy it after that. Has anyone bought it recently?


I am also a Contributor from Turkey. The contributor fund was added to my account on January 29, 2024.

Are payments made to different people at different times? It's weird that I still haven't been paid.

Sora is the big news of the day, but I am interested to know if its training set comes from Shutterstock's videos as part of their partnership with OpenAI, and if there will be any adequate compensation in the Contributor fund.

This question was also on my mind today... I would just guess that there will only be compensation, if at all, if someone finds out whether this was really done with Shutterstock data (and therefore with ours) and it then boils up high enough in the press.

It certainly won't come from Shutter itself and I'm also involved with about 4,000 videos there.
Let's see if something comes of it when the new system goes live.

When I just checked my earnings, I saw that I was making money as a contributor fund again. But it's the lowest earnings ever.

I got a small contributor fund payment today. The amount we get for datasets keeps getting lower, yet this side of Shutterstock's business is booming according to their annual report.

And apparently companies are paying decent money to stock agencies for datasets:
"Rates vary by buyer and content type, but Braga said companies are generally willing to pay $1 to $2 per image, $2 to $4 per short-form video"

"Sora" is also the name of a town of about 25,000 inhabitants in central Italy in the Lazio region  :)

I also received a small extra contributor fund bonus yesterday.

Maybe they have a bot running every end of the month across all ports, and whoever crosses certain threshold they credit the account.   That would explain different people getting credit to their accounts at different times
