Any chance they could have come over from Flickr?

No, they are not on Flickr either. Also all my Flickr content has a watermark.

I have contacted Contributor Help from Getty, and after some mails e many days they concluded that the imagens have migrated from Stockxpert.

It's a bug that in my case they have solved ... but even after they assure me all sales have been credit through Stockxpert account ... i think i will never know if that is the true.

Should I? Are you making a lot of $$$ at Getty? What's your commission % there?

after reading the thread I checked as well to see if i was on getty too, and discovered indeed some of my videos are there. I used to be an exclusive i don't know if it has something to do with that but it is clearly mentioned to be from istock collection. well i don't know if they announced it but i wasn't informed for sure(or even don't know if i was supposed to be )
well, lets hope for some sale than:))

I also found some of my images in E+ collection, I am surprised to see them there, very old files and I wouldn't think they were the best oe to make getty , but now I am curious too how this could have happened as there is no reference to IS in that E+

oh btw thanks for the heads up , I wouldn't know about it if you hadn't started the thread.

Isn't it just typical: they put photos over there that shouldn't be. I've got c20 old E+s waiting to go over from ages ago, probably more than a year. Over the weekend I had three recent E+s ported over, and one old one, but that one was a duplicate.
There's at least one poster over there who has none of his hundreds of E+ images ported across, as of last week; despite often asking for a status update.

Sorry! I did not mean the TS or micro section. I meant the rm or rf areas. Everyone I personally know there earns a small fortune every month.

Count me out on that one. I have not made one cent off those images as of now. I wish I could get a small fortune for those though...

Well thats pretty strange? Everyone I know including myself are earning plenty. I suppose it all depends on content. :)

Yes my images must stink. Therefore I'm even more puzzled that Getty would pick them...

Throwing something else random out here.

FLICKR.
If you upload to Flickr, it's also a place that they can nab them from for Getty. (I only upload small res watermarked images there, so likely not usable).

I already replied to that (top of page 2).

I thought you had to opt in to the Flickr/Getty scheme. I looked at the paperwork which was pages long and wasn't interested. Maybe you have to opt out? Anyway, like you, mine are low-res and watermarked.

I joined Flickr long before Getty was involved and always watermarked my images wherever I uploaded them for "free" - just as some type of "promotion".

This now just proves that I don't want changed user terms lead to unwanted distribution.
