Getty Hands Google Users Free Commercial Images, for $12
Bryan Rinnert, Photographer, Photo Editor
Kent | OH | United States | Posted: 12:21 PM on 01.17.13
->> From APhotoEditor:

"On December 6th the Google Drive Blog announced that “5,000 new photos of nature, weather, animals, sports, food, education, technology, music and 8 other categories are now available for your use in Docs, Sheets, and Slides” with no mention to how they were acquired or what type of license they come with. If you have a google drive account (comes with gmail and google apps for business) you can create a document and when you go to insert an image you can search google, life or stock. There’s a notice that the “results shown are labeled for commercial reuse with modification” but other than that you can insert the image results in your document and away you go."

All this and they are paying the photographers $12 an image.

->> A similar discussion is taking place at iStockPhoto (http://t.co/KdAyGclV) and it looks like they didn't even get $12 for them.

The race to completely gut the stock photo market is under way, and I think that there may be some class action suits undertaken.

->> Getty has handled my syndication for the last 4 years. What they have done to devalue our images with their "subscription" based plans is horrible.
