Many thanks for the DMLA for keeping us informed on this important issue!
Getty Images has written an Open Letter to U.S. Senators regarding Google’s anti-competitive practice of image scraping. This policy change on the part of Google was implemented in 2013 and greatly impacts anyone who displays images on the internet.
Getty is asking for support from visual associations and image licensing companies, as well as the photographers that we represent. We ask you to read the letter and if you agree with it, please add your name.
You can read the letter here.
