If I were to drop my iStock exclusivity, how would this affect my files currently on getty? For example Vetta, Photographer's Choice RM, Photodisc. I assume that my exclusive plus files would immediately go away?

All your files on Getty, that were sent there from here, would be removed.

I'm pretty sure your vetta and E+ would return to the main collection here as well.

P+ is the same idea, except for non exclusives.

Yep. If you remove yourself from Exclusivity you remove yourself from any and all of the collections that are reserved for Exclusive Contributors. From what I understand none of your content will be automatically moved into the non-exclusive P+ collection. You would have to handbomb those in yourself after your exclusivity is removed. That takes 30 days from the moment you request removal from the program.

And all of your files would be mirrored at photos.com and thinkstock.com. Non-exclusives can't opt out of this.

I'm really sad when I see that old exclusive members are thinking to leave exclusivity here. There are more and more of us every day. Really sad.

thinking and doing are two very different things. there are some contributors here who remind us regularly they are thinking of leaving, been doing so for years. yawn. shit or get off the pot.

Yep.

Let's leave it at that. We seem to have a couple of very similar threads rolling right now and I don't want people to run out of energy having to double posting how they really feel.
