You can't opt out. When they feel like it, they update the contract in their favour and we have to tick 'I agree', or have our account deactivated, choice is never an option around here. They pretty much see contributors as an inconvenience.

Stay on topic, folks.

ETA: That is for the folks who lost their posts a few minutes ago. I wasn't responding to Matthew.

...
Would we do this same deal now? No, not in this way.
...


And now we're already seeing that a new, different, and apparently ongoing way has been devised to permit third party companies to give away our work.  Should we be feeling reassured now?

So, still waiting if and how IStock will attend to this clamor? Will this thread just be buried, locked, fade away and nothing happens while our images that they are supposed to be selling is still being given away? 6 pages of complaints and contestations after the lawyer's official response should indicate clearly that the issue is in no way resolved, nor are their contributors appeased. Writing to the furnished email was pointless for me as the reply just pointed me back to the forum, I asked more questions and no reply.

Another good question.

...that istock HQ continue to ignore.

Hrmm, no we aren't ignoring anything. We've been working on responses and other things since Wednesday of last week. There is lots to this so you can appreciate we aren't going to rush to respond. It would be great if we had answers immediately but we don't. So we will continue to focus on the growing concerns of the contributor base in the hopes of having something together for mid to late this week. I can assure you we are doing our best to get something sooner than later. End of week discussions are always difficult so we are trying to avoid that.

Stay tuned, folks.


So are they also working on this MS deal?

Bump-


Are there any news or progress regarding crediting the artist, adding metadata to the images or having a contract that explains uses of these files?


The MS site is exactly the same and content continues to flow at thousands of files per week without any copyright symbol or license displayed. I continue to find my content on websites at the exact same size available there.


Thanks for any progress.

Gosh I just looked into this microsoft website and found 1 photo of mine downloaded 1663 times for free (a photo of a blue buildings in paris) + one vector that was clearly traced from one photo I have exclusively on iStock (a photo of my cocker spaniel):
Not only the pose is similar but also the shadows,hair and ears
what action should be made? email to support? are any case solved yet?
