As long as photographers continue to deal with Getty, they will get a company that does not care about reprenesting the photographers interests. This is a nice combo platter in addition to getting statements full of usage rates at $1.00 and less.

That means there is nothing punitive for the essential theft of the image...

It literally encourages theft because the possible loss is outweighed by the gain.
If they get away with the theft, then they don't need to pay... If they don't get away with it, well then they pay the same as if they had just bought it?

Not a good practice...
