Only a week left. Looks like I'll be closing my account.

"The very creatives that give Getty/iStock such a high quality product get treated like this?! This can't be more wrong." - recent comment from the petition

Tomorrow is the day our royalties are slashed. There's no reason the petition, and any media attention it can bring to Getty/iStock policies, should stop tomorrow, though. As people's royalties start to shrink (the people who stay with iStock, for some reason), and many people pull their work, there will be even more to report.

If you haven't signed yet, remember the petition will still be there. Almost 1,100 signatures now, including signatures from hundreds of buyers.

You can't petition a business to change their model. They will only change anything if they start seeing their profits decline.

Istock has always treated non-exclusives dreadfully but even so they make up 30% of my total earnings... at the moment at least. We'll see what happens after the change.

This and few other "decisions" made by Getty in the last 2 years made me close my account ... I was with Istock since 2005. This is a pure robbery.

Just checked and noticed that the petition is (still) online. It now has 1105 supporters and I signed it a couple of weeks ago too. It seems very long ago.

How does it work? Has the petition been delivered at some point or is it just waiting on the web? What's going to happen?
