I wonder what the film and television production companies will think of a site that doesn't sell footage?  Never understood why they aren't interested in a market that's big and could damage stills one day.

As long as this doesn't presage another royalty cut for contributors to pay for the campaign, this is good news. And I had missed that - thanks for posting.

At least they haven't hired the same guys as Fotolia did. That did the ad that most people didn't notice, and those that did got to associate the brand with the N-a-z-i-s and pedophilia. Then when the deliberately controversial ad proved to be, well, controversial the guy from that PR agency threw his toys out the pram and came on this forum to call their client's contributors and customers morons. Happy days.

Personally, I would never put my communications in the hands of a company that used expressions like "to implement a media relations and thought leadership campaign".

LOL!  That was a lot of fun, wasn't it?  ;D

This sounds like great news to me!  Considering my RPD at DT is the highest of any micro site I contribute to, more customers there can only be a positive!
