What do Google, Getty, Blockchain and the Poynter Institute have in common? All the photo news you need to know this week.
Late last week, Getty announced a global licensing agreement with Google. While this wouldn’t rattle anyone’s news alert (anyone can license images to Google), it is the terms that are of importance. Apparently, Getty got the search giant to do a better job at protecting photographer’s copyright. By removing the direct link to the location of the high-resolution image used for the search result thumbnail and by increasing the font of the “Images may be subject to copyright.” message. As neither were live at the moment of this posting, we couldn’t verify.
