I know it's not fair, and it could be me next... but, I can't help but think that this is really the only way to preserve incomes for artists. You just can't divide a pie a million ways. That said, I'm sorry for what happened to you. It's never a good thing or a pleasant feeling.

True but thats really trying to rig the market it won't work in the current environment I think.

I think it was about 4 years and had close to 2,000 images. I'm not really bothered about getting kicked out as they never sold for me anyway but what I don't like is the way certain agencies expect top quality work but pay bottom dollar. We're all responsible for this situation but the people who worked hard and made them what they are deserve a little more respect (and renumeration!). The industry is changing and, as always, it wont be the contributors who benefit.

True. They ask for gold and pay pennies.
