Thanks for the link. Very informative.
I would think this is a step in the right direction, although those in power always seem to be able to arm wrestle tech to suit their needs and pocketbooks before the general public can get on board.
One thing is for certain, the next 20 years is going to look nothing like the last 20.July 15, 2018 at 2:53 pm #30479MichaelLParticipant

Or the 20 before that! 😀January 30, 2019 at 11:52 am #31567Dan WGuest
I sell sound effects an music on a non-exclusive basis. I was confused about which road to take as well, which is why I created a numbers experiment, tracking non-exclusive sales from various companies and calculating what the hypothetical amount would have been if sold exclusively. It started with one year, but I’ve been doing it for a couple years now. The result so far always turns out to be more profitable on a non-exclusive contract.
The market keeps evolving though For example, AJ now allows authors to adjust the price of their products like P5 always has. That changes the numbers from the original calculation. Libraries are also offering more licensing options now too, like single-use or multi-use.
