  1. "A spokeswoman for Getty Images confirms to BJP (the British Photography Journal) that editorial websites, from The New York Times to Buzzfeed, will also be able to use the embed feature as long as images are used in an editorial context. "
  2. "Once an image is embedded on their site--we have the right to monetize whenever we might choose to do it; retroactively. If an image was embedded a month ago and we decided to serve an ad in the viewer today, we could. "
  3. Photoshelter does not allow free unlimited editorial license anymore than our personal websites do!
  4. It is allowed. ANY form of editorial is allowed, even blogs that rely on adsense to monetise. When I license for a spot editorial, it's just that, editorial. It'll be no different. "Blogs that draw revenues from Google Ads will still be able to use the Getty Images embed player at no cost. “We would not consider this commercial use,” says Peters. “The fact today that a website is generating revenue would not limit the use of the embed. What would limit that use is if they used our imagery to promote a service, a product or their business. They would need to get a license.” A spoke
  5. Unfortunately I would place bets that ALL other large agencies will follow suit. Small blog / web / online spot licenses have been the bread and butter (for me anyway) here at alamy. Will people really now still pay for a blog license here on Alamy, when they can just head to Getty and get it for free? What are the implications for online sites like BBC news / editorial? Embed's all the way?
  6. What the? http://www.bjp-online.com/2014/03/getty-images-makes-35-million-images-free-in-fight-against-copyright-infringement/ So anyone can just use images from getty for blogs / online news papers etc for free... Or am I missing something?!
  7. Hi, I've not been on this forum for some time so please excuse the question if this has been asked a million times before (I did check the search).. What is the best way you guys have found searching for your images for printed media, especially book covers? Obviously have tried the usual way of using google image search based on file URL, as well as Tineye et al... but I'm sure someone mentioned another database / site in the past... Any suggestions? Thanks again, Chris
