I notice at least some of the reviewers are also sellers in these markets. What measures does GraphicRiver take to resolve the ethics inherent in this contradiction?
I would do a search in the forums this topic has been talked about a number of times, likely to get locked otherwise.
For a start, they obviously don’t review their own files. I guess they could reject files which might be competition or steal ideas or techniques from files they see? Both of these would be pretty obvious, pretty fast.
The main thing though is that they get paid to work from anywhere in the world, at whatever time suits them, for an awesome company. No one would risk losing that to try to get more sales on one of their files.
I did search the forums and didn’t find a similar thread.
But I guess there is absolutely no problem in asking the wolf to guard the sheep. None whatsoever.
