Obviously I’m not talking about reselling. That’s a total red herring to what I’m talking about. This has absolutely nothing to do with stymieing an author’s potential sales.
I’m sorry if you misunderstood me. I didn’t imply that you were going to resell or redistribute it.
I was talking about the possibility of it happening if the rules were not what they are now. :)

Gotcha, yeah that makes sense. ;) And I do understand how things can be misinterpreted rather quickly.



It doesn’t need to be like that though, my use is still very limited (i.e. only for my portfolio going on youtube). Why should the money I would spend on a contractor not go to someone that’s risks zero by my very specific and limited usage of their stock? Obviously I’m not talking about reselling. That’s a total red herring to what I’m talking about. This has absolutely nothing to do with stymieing an author’s potential sales.

I hear what you’re saying, Josh, but the licenses here are simple and generic, so they don’t cover a very specific case like yours. If specific exceptions were to be written in, it would quickly create the misunderstanding that anyone can uses the licenses in a similar way.

Maybe consider posting something on the forums here – I’m sure there are many VH users who would consider making something bespoke for you for a couple of hundred dollars – the project in question is rather simple to recreate.

True. Well, maybe I can contact even that author to see if he would draw up a specific license agreement to suit my usage.

Yikes, $4000+ to be able to put my full portfolio up with an animation on youtube? That makes zero sense. I could contract someone to make me a design I’d have outright full license rights on for 1/10th that price (at most honestly). Or I could alternatively buy 40 complete (and huge) digital juice libraries.

I hope you can see why that doesn’t make a lick of sense. Also you really think I’m going to go through a checkout process 200 times? You’ve got to be joking me. Guess it’s time to head to microlancer <sigh>.

So, I have a question about a file like this:

http://videohive.net/item/audio-react-analog-vu-meter/5467966

Basically, I want to use this visualization to make videos to go on youtube for all my audiojungle music so there is better advertisement for my files (with a slick visual to boot). If each time I export the visualization for a different song it counts as it’s own “item” or “end product” (which seems to be what the terms are stipulating), then I’d have to buy hundreds of licenses at a cost to me of around $4000 to cover my whole portfolio. This simply isn’t viable. I have free ae file visualizations I can use instead if it’s that’s crazy expensive.

Does someone have clarification on this?

Simple example. There are 2 well known stock libraries. One – liberal takes almost all stuff, no upload limits and fair royalties etc. Second much more restrictive, with upload limits, acceptance tests and poor royalties.

They have started from the same level for me. Effect: first one – + 400% income and traffic during last 2 years for me, second one: – -60% during last 2 years.

Conclusion: Fair and open bussiness makes more $ than elite and greedy model.

Boom. Don’t forgot how much money new authors end up spending on the site to support their media…

I’ve probably spent $150 just purchasing other various forms of stock media (and music). I wouldn’t have had I not been an active author.

I have 3 AOC monitors. All are fantastic. Wonderful color and accuracy right out of the box for a non-apple system.
