  1. Over the past six to twelve months I've noticed an increased number of Alamy preview images used on the web. Most of these images aren't "shared" with a link back to Alamy but rather are watermarked comp images. Most often I've come across these on Facebook used in a totally innocuous manner.. but not always. Yesterday I decided to google two recently reported sales. I never did find a legitimate use but one is being used on a Malware site that spits out various errors when you click on the link. The second is on page called "Gay Boys" which used an unreleased photo of minor children who were protesting against gays.. Ironically, that one does eventually link back to Alamy. From a photographer's point of view, allowing unregistered access to comp images doesn't seem t be working out so well. I wonder if Alamy would consider limiting these 1300x948 comp images to registered users who are logged in. fD
