Getty Images Launches StockPhotoRights.com
Using and selling stock photos can get confusing pretty quickly. Don't feel bad if you don't understand the usage rights involved, almost half of the 1,200 people surveyed by Redshift Research didn't understand the legal protection surrounding stock photos.
StockPhotoRights.com was created to clear all it all up, and answer questions about stock photo use. The website is made primarily for photographers and other image providers, and has the full support of both the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies and the Picture Archive Council of America.
Cathy Aron, Executive Director for the PACA says that a site like StockPhotoRights is necessary. "This new resource can help to fill the knowledge gap and provide a place to go for those seeking information regarding image licensing."
