Love to see your pictures in print?
It is very flattering to see your pictures in the newspapers and magazines with your name at the side of them isnt it?
Well here's your chance to join a Facebook group which wants to share your 'local' pictures for free! Yes, it won't cost you anything, and it won't cost them anything either, and the beauty of it is, (for them) that they can use it right across the NEWSQUEST group, also at no cost to them.
Newsquest now employ more sales people than journalists.
The other problem with this kind of 'picture farming' is that, in the event of your picture becoming an orphan, being used where you don't want it to be used there will be no chance of an infringement claim using companies like Pixsy.
Comment from Mark... "Free and sub-licensable, basically. (6) is about syndication, so not only giving it away, but giving away rights to sell it as well. Phew."
