Giving things away.

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm a freelance editorial photographer. Which broadly means that I charge a 
| creative fee for my photographic services, the product of which the client is 
| entitled to use, exclusively (called an embargo period), before I then 
| syndicate it, and the rest of the pictures made at the shoot. As such my 
| current business model revolves around my ownership of the copyright of my 
| images and trading the licensing rights thereof. I represent myself and so pay 
| no commission on my fees to an agent on the initial creative fee (though those 
| fees seldom cover the cost of the shoot), however, when syndicated through 
| Corbis Outline, I pay a minimum of 50% if they re-sell it, and 50% of my fee 
| again if one of their agents sells it for them. I also produce self directed 
| projects which I exhibit, and my work is collected by the National Portrait 
| Gallery in London,UK. My total monthly income from archive sales are approx 
| Â150 GBP. I also sell my work directly and independently.

| providers, have been ordered by ALIS to pay $264,000 each in damages and issue a 
| public apology.


Despite Publishers' Complaints, They Benefit from Used Game Sales

RIAA must embrace file sharing
