Here is a recent interview with Jonathan Klein of Getty Images in which he gives his view on issues relating to IP including Pinterest.

WOW I guess this Vdeo answered all the questions..... They aren't going to stop it! Too Bad that what he doesn't realize is the dilution of expectations people will have when they keep getting things for free. Why would they pay, they'll just keep looking for free imagery! We as photographers own our imagery, take charge and write letters to Getty and IStock and let them know your unhappy. What more can we do? As you all know that communication from up above is almost non-existant and now we don't have a phone number to even call anyone and complain!




Wow, interesting to hear.

Here is my story to that whole story and it makes me think I should maybe change my point of view:
I recently submitted a paper to a Award Jury of my main work. I was using Flickr images in my research and had to write all Flickr users personally, where there was no license available or license was prohibiting the use of image. Since I had used a lot of photos, I had to write about 15 users - politely asking about possible ways to still use their images. Now, a lot of them were really friendly and gave me permission right away for using them for free. A few people were really making a big thing out of it: I had to set up contracts, termination of permission clauses, printing and mailing them hardcopies of my submission etc. As I was bound to using exactly these images, I did all of it without questioning, since I was still happy to use them. One picture was licensed by getty and I HAD to buy it, although the photographer would have liked to give it to me for free. So I bought a small size of the photo from getty for $20, they didn't even manage to give me the 20% off (I wrote customer support but never got an answer). All the process of acquiring all the rights to use all these images for just 1 submission for a student project, which probably will never get published was such a pain. It costs me 3 days to just get all the licenses bound to these images. I really realized that this is the major reason why people are coping photos without appropriate licensing, because its so hard to get all the rights legally (but istock definitely has one of the easiest ways of doing so). Time for most people is more important than money.
After I got all rights, submitted the paper I send out digital copies to all photographers I used images from. They were so thankfull of seeing it, but most said "Had I known how small my image appeard..." or "Had I known the whole context of this.. I would not have made such a big deal of it". I explained everything in detail and tried to show them I am not trying to illegally copying their images, but in the end it would have been so much easier just using them and waiting afterwards for claims and then paying them - which, I realized now after this youtubevideo, would probably never come in because it was a student, non-commercial work...

In the end, as a student, you may have learned more through this exercise of legally obtaining rights to use images than the original educational purpose of the paper you published. I admire your diligence in following theough with the process and the respect you displayed for the artistic professionals that created the images that illustrated your paper.

So, what's the IS position on people stealing ... I mean "pinning" watermarked images for use on Pinterest?
