There’s a ruckus raised over Getty Images’ recent decision to offer a $49 “web use” license for images from all of its collections.

Not good, says the Stock Artists Alliance and several other leading trade associations representing over 12,000 professional photographers.

They told Getty, “Offering your very best imagery at heavily discounted prices may well increase volume, but it also risks undermining Getty’s core licensing business-as well as the businesses of the independent contributing photographers who create and own the majority of imagery in your RM collections.”

They have asked Getty to remove all Rights Managed imagery from the new license
