IStock’s take over of Veer.com takes full effect today, as in you can’t log into Veer.com starting today (Mar. 31, 2017). The money owed (on Veer) apparently has been changed to iStock credits. I still haven’t gotten any iStock login details so can’t check anything…
Here’s the FAQ if you need more info: http://press.gettyimages.com/istock-and-veer-faq/
“As part of VCG’s purchase of Corbis and partnership with Getty Images, we are pleased to welcome all Veer customers to iStock by Getty Images. Effective March 30, the Veer business and website will no longer be accessible and all Veer customers will enjoy the expanded benefits of iStock with a special offer.”
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.”
