I think around 90% of video's here are exclusive so buyers do check here because they can't find our work anywhere else. Don't forget the Getty factor. I say if you are Gold or above it would be a huge risk to drop exclusivity. I feed my family from shooting video so at this point I am not willing to drop my income 70% to see if I could do better in the long run.

I think 10% of the videos here are exclusive, just a gut feeling, no stats or facts. You?

I'm positive the number is a lot higher than that.

hmm until this ship hasnt totally sunk this conversation is more like MAC vs PC thread. But still - its good to know how things are going on the other side of fence.

At one point iStock stated how much video content was exclusive. It was a lot, I just don't remember where the post was at.

What does this mean? do you mean this ship is sinking but has not gone under yet? and what does the other side of the fence mean? completely incomprehensible.

 yeah...I would think it might be more in the 15-25% range tops...

I think more like 63% of the content here is exclusive. I base that on going to the latest downloads page and dividing the number of exclusive video pages (2785) by the total number of video pages (4359) then multiplying by 100 to get a percentage.

Oh, there's plenty of bug issues here, sadly. But it's nothing I personally can fix. I'm just cutting back on my caffeine intake and everything's a lot more mellow.
