The agonizing delay in providing any information about whether the Google deal will remain as is, regarding the free distribution of our hi-res images, is preventing me from uploading anything further. I really miss being a more active member of iStock, but I feel I must protect my work.


I keep checking back for an update that addresses the "elephant in the room" but so far the updates are just dancing around our main concerns. Hopefully, soon, I can come back and participate as an active contributor.

So whats the timeline on updates for this issue? Seems to me something should have been resolved by now.

if we notice that our pictures are selling an illegal manner on another site, should send a support ticket?

here's what you should do if you spot any suspected file misuse:

FILE MISUSE

If you need to find that again - it's a sticky thread at the top of the Help forum.

I'm still waiting, and waiting...I've deactivated most of my files. 


Why can't they have an opt out option?

Giving contributors the option to Opt-out and securing our Property rights would be a big step in the right direction.  Anything less would be business as usual. I have no doubt that given an option to participate, Getty/Istock would have more then enough interested artist to fill the void of those who felt roped into this deal and want nothing to do with it.

I had a $12 Getty sale in January. I'm a bit concerned that it has been purchased for Google Drive. The early update was that no new files were being added. Is there any additional news regarding the possibility of opting out?

Can you please send me a Site Mail with the file ID of the image in question?

Which update ("the early update") are you referring to?  There are multiple threads on this topic, and the earlier ones are much longer than this one, hoping you can identify the post you are referring to, please.

I also had a $12.00 Getty sale, I know it's on Google Drive, I saw it there.  That's why I deactivated all my good images, and am still waiting, and still losing money.
