I know this is a stock site and the logic is selling every “item” many times, but I was wondering why not exclusive rights to one customer ?

I mean, like many user here I create logos for my clients and have a number of unused proposals or more simply I’d want to create something to sell ONCE for a certain amount (e.g.: 300-500 $). I think there’re Clients that would be happy to have a quality logo with unique concept and full copyright.

I don’t like selling logos as stock, just because I think it’s a unique “piece of art” with unique concept and to sell one time to one customer. I also think that most of the time it’s not convenient to sell it as stock.

I know there’s also other sites that sell with the above logic (I use them), but why not take advantage of a known platform like GR ?

I even suggest awhile ago to have an option for the first customer of a logo to be able to buy the full rights of it (therefore it would be taken out of the market), but just for the first customer, so it would be implementing the stock sale we have now and that option that other markets have. :)

@Dfinepixel: I see your point, but what if the customer which wants exclusive rights comes after that logo (the only one he wanted) has already been sold as stock ? He go away and you remain with a few bucks of your stock logo. On the contrary, I think the author should decide, at upload time, the type of license to apply for that logo.

@twistedDNA: No, buddy, it’s not the same thing. Microlancer connects authors and clients for a specific and defined project: in this case the buyer exactly know what he wants and what the end product should looks like. My experience tells me that most of the times Clients don’t know exactly what they want, thay have a company and want an exclusive logo, they trust us and want to be amazed by our ideas/concepts.

I think the company or a buyer direct connect a author by email or message to they want a unique logo by any concept. What field they want. Then we authors are make a unique such as (piece of art) logo and not sell to any marketplace only for a special buyer. Such as a “Item Requests” field…. :)
