Understandable that it’s a big task to police, however, when it is discovered that a user is uploading exclusive music to other royalty free sites – ban them for life.. This isn’t something that really needs second chances is it? A harsh penalty would greatly discourage it I believe. The main people do it is because the ramifications are so small.
Seriously this. What are the repercussions for not following the rules?

Envato: “Hey buddy, we caught you with tracks on different sites even though you’re exclusive. Stop that!!!”

ShamefulAuthorMusic: “Errr…ok. I just opted out of exclusivity. Thanks for letting me know.”

Envato: “Ok we’ll pretend it never happened.”

I’ve seen it with some pretty good authors here. Would hate to see them shamed but it is both dishonest and cheating. Some peeps just have no qualms about trying to make that extra buck it seems….

It’s been like this for a couple months now. They’ve been categorized as “Ongoing Pricing Tests”. See below.

April is typically a decent month for me and im tracking WAY above average for the first 9 days. If things continued at the current pace it would easily be my best month ever.

I might be throwing a bit of logic in with the conspiracy theories, but doesn’t it make more sense for Envato to favor non-exclusives selling more since they ultimately take a larger percentage of each sale from those authors?

You’d be right in thinking that at first. This was one of the reasons I went non-exclusive in the first place, with an ‘I’ll be alright Jack’ attitude. It’s only after spending two years working full-time in the stock music industry, that it’s apparent that many libraries are beginning to change their tact as the market grows (both in terms of authors and buyers), in order to get customers coming to one marketplace alone; in this case, AudioJungle.

Take a look at my reasonings at the bottom of the page here earlier in this thread.
Gotcha. I guess its not too far fetched after all. I’d be really surprised tho.
