Interesting read from a Getty / iStock contributor regarding new unrevocable distribution rights. Very interesting read. Check it out HERE.
Excerpt from an email I just got:
“Today Corbis is announcing the sale of the Corbis Images (excluding Splash), Corbis Motion, and Veer licensing businesses to Unity Glory International, an affiliate of the Visual China Group (VCG), a leading Chinese visual communications and new media business.
In connection with this transaction, VCG is excited to announce the expansion of its longstanding partnership with Getty Images, and, following a transition period (which we’ll explain in more detail), Getty Images will become the exclusive distributor of Corbis content outside China.”

If your work was reproduced on a different user’s account repeatedly over 3 days? With you reporting every single instance even with a DMCA Take Down notice?
My agency took 4 days to completely remove all my photos and close the account. The funny thing is, on the 3rd day, they had removed a few of the earlier posts but it just got re-uploaded hours later.
Any one with similar experience?
