I know plenty of artist friends who make thousands of dollars every month on sites like Deny and society6 simply through royalties. I would take incremental payments with copyright retention over a lump payment any day. It does take some work and promotion to make sales, but that's the life of the artist, and ultimately it's a win-win because it helps promotes the site and also the artist.

I'm okay with being paid for what actually sells. That seems very fair to me, especially given the fact that the artist retains copyright. That's huge. Also, don't forget that Threadless reserves the right to licence the artwork, so there's potential for more profits if it's licensed for other products besides t-shirts. On the flip side, with the old system, if my design happened to flop and Threadless had to absorb a loss because of the $2,000 upfront payment... I don't see this as a viable payment strategy compared to simply paying a reasonable royalty.

It's a terrific site if you're committed to "tending the garden" and doing the necessary promotion and posting of new work. It's important to look at it more as a longterm investment and not expect instant results.
