Click on the link below to get access to a description of the
Modified Rights Ready Pricing model that I am proposing. In my
opinion there are serious flaws in all the existing stock photography
pricing models - Rights Managed, Rights Ready, Royalty Free,
Microstock and Subscription. The one that comes the closest to
solving customer complaints in today's market and still provides
reasonable compensation for the image creator is the relatively new
Rights Ready model instituted by Getty Images. I am proposing a
slightly different strategy using this model as a base and I call it
Modified Rights Ready (MRR).
Modified Rights Ready (MRR)
The 58 page booklet starts out by discussing nine issues that must be
considered before attempting to price usages. In Chapter 2 I describe
the model in detail along with some sample prices for various uses.
(Each user should feel free to adjust the prices for each category of
usage as their market dictates.) In Chapter 3 I have outlined why
this method of pricing will benefit both RM and RF sellers.
