Hi Mat,

Great webinar.

The question regarding copyright reminded me. I am about to send you a PM re. some particularly egregious infringement that has been going on on Fotolia and carried over to Adobe. I am hoping that the new ownership takes this seriously. It is a top selling person who has probably made tens of thousands off someone else's work given their placement in some of the most popular search results for years. Be interesting to see if this is taken seriously.

Thanks Mat,
I just watched the replay and got some great tips! Is there someplace where we can sign up to be notified of in advance of webinars? I can't find a place to subscribe to such notification on the contributor site.

Also I was wondering how we might lobby for a change to the witness signature requirement on releases. Getty/iStock & Pond5 don't have this requirement and Fotolia didn't. I recently left Getty and have thousands of images I want to submit to AS, but b/c many of the releases don't have witness signature I can't upload them to AS. Seems like a competitive disadvantage for AS to have this requirement. Really can't imagine that a release dispute will result in dragging in a witness to testify.

Thanks in advance for help on these 2 Qs!

Thanks ML, you should be able to "follow" me on Crowdcast which I believe will then provide you with updates on new webinars: https://www.crowdcast.io/mhayward2909

We have a few planned and once I get the dates locked in I will be sure to post here in MSG also. Regarding the witness requirement on releases, yes I will bring this up again with our legal team.

Best regards,

Mat Hayward

Great! I just followed you on Crowdcast. I think the MR issue is very significant for AS as it discourages folks with content from other agencies from joining. Anything that makes it more difficult for contributors and their collaborators is a disincentive. Plus, if AS were willing to match the Getty/iStock policy, it would give them an advantage over SS who still require witness for all releases. Finally, in addition to my (former) Getty collection, I often photograph people solo and sometimes in remote places, where there is no ready witness, so the need to have one can be a significant hurdle. I hope the decision-makers at AS are fully evaluating the cost vs. benefit of this requirement. I rest my case ;-).

Hi Mat,

Great webinar.

The question regarding copyright reminded me. I am about to send you a PM re. some particularly egregious infringement that has been going on on Fotolia and carried over to Adobe. I am hoping that the new ownership takes this seriously. It is a top selling person who has probably made tens of thousands off someone else's work given their placement in some of the most popular search results for years. Be interesting to see if this is taken seriously.


You should start a new thread on this. Its important but might not get seen when its off-topic in the webinar thread. I am interested in the answer.

So far no reply from Matt to my PM. I suspect the answer will be no answer or action. This particular person has been at it for years but is a little craftier than the average so it would take a bit of (minimal) investigation by the agency.

I'm sorry but I cannot provide support via PM through outside forums. Please submit a ticket via the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal through the contact us link at the bottom of the page. You can put my name in the subject so it is definitely assigned to me.

Thanks,

Mat

Yeah, it's not my work being infringed in this case so you wont be "supporting" me. With the PM I sent you know as much as I do. I guess the only difference is it has nothing to do with me while it is on your site. What you do with the information is now up to you/ Adobe.
