I don't really care.  I just think that's why everyone is so suspect of motives.

"Adobe basically has their straw straight down into Shutterstocks customer list." is a very odd phrasing, which I took as meaning they could somehow spy on users. If it's as simple as they can market to SS's customers, why not iS's, DT's or any other agency's on the same principle?
There is no reason to spy on customers.  Shutterstock and Adobe have overlapping customer lists, nearly every SS subscriber is also an Adobe user so they have that customer list already.  iStock has exclusive content so you can't show the exact same image at a cheaper price like you could with Shutterstock.  I assume he didn't compare DT because they aren't very relevant to anything.  To me that statement doesn't seem very controversial at all and why continue to throw personal insults at him if your goal is really to have an objective discussion?
Show me the personal insult.

Disclaimer: I'm waiting for an explanation about what happened after he started project managing at iStock/Getty, and I won't get off his case until he tells us what went wrong.

Added: I see our own jjneff twice asked calm, sensible questions on Yuri's blog and wasn't answered (as of now). So much for that 'promise'.

I don't get it. In the blog Yuri says he gets 40% from istock but is hoping to get 45% royalty in the future and yet he sells through his own website peopleimages.com

There are different rules for Yuri, he was allowed to be exclusive with istock while still having big portfolios on other sites.  I don't think there are any other contributors that were allowed to do that?

There are many studios that distribute via Getty and also anywhere else, like Blendimages etc...

Yuri is not a single artist, he is a production house.

Yuri is a guy who predicted 2 years ago that today all of us would be shooting with nokia smart phones.

Pd: Nokia used to be a finish brand name for smart phones,

This has got to be the most entertaining thread I have seen in a while.
I would just like to add a couple of thoughts, I did not read the blog nor will i visit the site. the more hits and the more comments the site gets, the higher it will get ranked, the ego need not be enlarged further. :-)
seems there was a comment on things looking plastic on SS by YA. if I remember correctly, wasnt it he that perfected the plastic people look and that was where he made all his money?
I too saw no swearing or name calling just a nice friendly conversation and critique of a blog post. Isnt that what forums are all about?
To go to his site where he has COMPLETE control over what the public gets to see is not an open forum or discussion. Again visits and post there just help HIS ratings in search engines.
Mush better to post here :-)
At this point where almost all sites  are taking both good and bad stuff and everyone and their sister think they can be photographers, I am sure even his work (of which I have seen nothing recent) is getting buried with everyone else's.
Yes, I was impressed at how much he made, but never really cared too much for the style of images and obviously wasnt impressed enough by his earnings to try to copy him.

Microstock is a crap shoot, which is why I shoot what I want the way I want, upload to all the decent sites and just let them fly.

At this point is YA a has been? If the sales are not what they used to be, well. we will let someone else decide that!
Stick with the sites you feel treat you right and enjoy . out of making pictures because that is truly what it is all about! the money comes when you do what you love!

So if I become a production house I can upload anywhere and still be exclusive.
