Photographer Groups Call on Getty Images to Remove Rights Managed Collections from $49 Web License


Coordinated Action by Photographer Associations

This is the latest example of coordinated advocacy initiatives by leading photographer trade associations who are increasingly working together to address issues of common concern to their members. They have also joined together as members of the PLUS, The Picture Licensing Universal System; and the Imagery Alliance, a diverse coalition of industry stakeholders formed to respond to proposed “orphan works” legislation, and to champion the need for industry licensing and metadata standards, and copyright education.
