marb67 saidTo the best of my knowledge Audiojungle is the silver medal winner in this dubious competition. There’s a big stock market where non-exclusive rates start from 15% and if you sell over $180,000 you reach the generous 20%. At least their licensing prices are higher ($44 regular and $170 extended) so despite the 15% royalty rate, non exclusive authors there get paid as exclusive Audiojunglers.
Am I right in thinking that it’s the lowest rate out there for royalty free stock?
If you start a petition you should back it up with something. Would you be ready to leave Audiojungle in case your demands are not fulfilled? If not, starting a petition is useless.
Did they know what you were going to draw?
I think that the prices on Audiojungle are ridiculously low. I can understand why certain stock sites state the following:
We do not accept any artists whose music tracks are participating in or for sale at any of the web sites or programs listed here below. We believe these sites devalue the music industry and do a major disservice to creative music artists by excessively discounting music pricing on a regular on-going basis. Consequently, we do not wish to associate ourselves with artists who sell music on these sites and thereby assist in this devaluation of the industry, and who would just end up competing against themselves at our site, where we strive to maintain reasonable and fair pricing:
$70 for extended license is a joke. I have sold music for films/TV shows for prices between €300-900, so getting only $35.5 for the same thing is quite frustrating .
