APA Strongly Opposes Getty Images Licensing Changes

By // July 1, 2011 // Posted in Photography

The American Photographic Artists (APA) has issued a statement strongly opposing the proposed licensing changes that Getty Images intends to make. The APA sees these changes as unnecessary and inappropriate for Getty Images to continue to leverage its position in the industry by forcing contributors to relinquish control over which licensing model shall apply to their creative works. Getty, on the other hand, argues that the changes will enable it to more easily modify content to use across new and more licensing models, products, services and selling environments, including subscriptions, high-volume customer deals and new or emerging pricing, licensing and payment models. www.apanational.com.
