Friday’s I Love Photography Chat: Getty’s 35 Million Free Images, Oscar Selfies, and a lot of Birds

This week Allen and I dive straight into what’s on most photographer’s minds: Getty’s new embed feature, which allows 35 million images to be free on the web. We also discuss Annie Leibovitz new SUMO book, which weighs in at 57 pounds, as well as the very important question: who really owns copyright to the star-studded photo taken with Ellen DeGeneres’ Samsung during the Oscars?

    IMHO. I think Getty is becoming the Walmart of Photography. Just as Walmart took all manufacturing to China to the point that anyone who wanted to compete had to the same. So will Getty force other agencies to give away photos as well.

    It’s probably a good move for Getty as a corporate overlord, but bad for photographers and individual wage earner.

    If the title “Getty Images makes 35 million images free in fight against copyright infringement” is sound journalism, then so is this: “Millions of acres of tropical rainforests chopped down yearly in fight against global warming.”
