skyphyr writes "Turbosquid mailed its top sellers asking if they'd be interested in entering an exclusivity agreement. Competitors warned their vendors about the risks of going exclusive with Turbosquid. Potential loss of income in the short term, and reduced royalty rates in the long term. Rather than shelve the clumsy attempt at a stealthy cutoff of the competition's air supply Turbosquid instead effectively held their vendors' future income hostage. Royalty rates for vendors who do not go exclusive will be dropping from 55% to 40% on September 1st 2009.
How will this impact vendors, clients and Turbosquid?"
