Getty shoots, scores
I wonder how much of the damages is passed on to the photographer. Actually, knowing Getty, i'm sure you still end up getting your cut of $49 while they pocket the rest...
What's more concerning is how they will deal with situations where the Getty pic they are pursuing turns out to have been licensed through Corbis or Alamy. Personally my Getty contract is exclusive and I try to keep it that way but i know of several people who spread there pics around indiscriminately. Could spell trouble if they start chasing these things more actively with tracking software etc...
