The STOCKPHOTO Discussion Group has been set up for professional stock photographers, stock photography libraries, stock photo-buyers, and others with an interest in the stock photography industry to participate in an open global discussion on topics of professional interest. These topics can include stock photography trends, subject needs, business practices, copyright and other legal issues, new technology, or just about anything that relates to the stock photography industry.
Contributors who repeatedly refuse to comply with these posting rules may be banned from the STOCKPHOTO discussion group, as they are often more maintenance than they are worth. On the other hand, STOCKPHOTO subscribers who can repeatedly demonstrate their ability to post within these rules may be allowed to freely post without moderation to facilitate a more timely distribution of their valuable contributions.
Think of the STOCKPHOTO discussion group as being an electronic version of a stock photography conference. In real life, it would be considered out of place for anyone to hog the microphone, make blatant plugs for themselves, or ramble on excessively off the subject. Please remember this when you are contributing to the STOCKPHOTO discussion group.
For more information about suitable posting behavior, please read Arlene Rinaldi's Netiquette Guide. Too many aggressive, irrelevant, unprofessional, or repetitive postings will result in the withdrawal of participation among the professionals in the group who don't have time for such banter, but do potentially have the most to contribute.
If you have any questions about these policies, please contact the List Owner.

If you are planning to regularly contribute to The STOCKPHOTO Network discussion, it is recommended that you "subscribe" to the discussion list and post directly to our posting address. If you are more interested in just reading what others have to say, it is recommended that you read The STOCKPHOTO Network contributions from the newsgroup or Google Groups.
