To expand on my previous post, I would prefer a prompt to remind the buyer to select a “valid” licence option which is like a double check that they have indeed selected the right licence they need for their purpose.
I actually think this is a very important bug that needs urgent addressing. While this is not exactly a legal loophole it is a problem.

I have been thinking about it. Its very easy to fix. On the batch editor and on the image editor we need to get a tick box that says RM. So if we select an image for RM the only way to purchase the image is to tick a licence. Without ticking the licence your cant download the image. So when the file is marked as RM, and the buyer clicks on the file size, a box pops up saying choose your licence. And before a licence is chosen the image is NOT added to the cart. Problem solved.October 19, 2013 at 5:31 pm #4033
When adding license options (a single one or multiple ones) in the bulk edit system we should be able to define one of the license options as a default and the radial button should already be selected when the customer goes to an image detail page. The customer can change it to another license option if desired but one would always be selected solving the legality of the license issue.
I always thought it was weird that one of the radial buttons wasn’t selected by default already. It’s confusing to the customer and one more stumbling block to buying an image. Everyone of these little stumbling blocks looses a certain percentage of customers.October 22, 2013 at 2:13 pm #4034
This is an issue I have had for a while now with editorial images and I’ve tried to bring up for a while now. I want the editorial license to be the default license type for certain images as I do not have model releases and I do not have property releases. they are just that editorial shots. If the user doesn’t select editorial though it goes to a default license type which I don’t even have.
This can cause confusion for the customer and maybe making them believe it’s a standard license allowing them commercial usage. This could cause me a bunch of legal issues.October 22, 2013 at 4:33 pm #4063
I agree, the licencing system needs an overhaul and please sooner rather then later as this is the core of our business. If this goes wrong, buyers will lose all trust in symbiostockOctober 22, 2013 at 5:27 pm #4035

My RM images are all only available through Alamy and I use the AJT Alamy Plugin to direct customers there.
So how does this work and for other with the extended plugin that he wrote.
Do I upload a photo and then add the link, but if someone wants to buy, they buy through Alamy, not Symbiostock?
So it’s just a search link, right?
