interesting.

wasn't Melcher very vocal about the stock industry going down the drain and ranting and raving about getty's monopoly ?

I remember seeing a system like this suggested in a movie once. I wish I could remember.

It was a line that went something like "Imagine a child sees a toy on a picture. He can click the picture and buy the toy..."

I'm wracking my brain here. Anyone remember?

It might have been a Spielberg movie. AI comes to mind but I can't remember the scene.

what about : imagine random bloggers and leechers seeking for images to steal for their blogs, they can click the image and BUY IT from the legitimate author ...

that would be a big step forward but it ain't gonna happen, the guys at google are takers not givers.

Has anyone made any money from Stipple?  I still don't really get it.  There must be money to be made if Getty are getting involved but how much will contributors see?  I'd like to make some extra money from my non-stock images but didn't really give this one much attention.

I looked through the examples on stipple.com and didn't see anything that I thought was exciting. It seemed that those with blogs and facebook pages might lard an image with references to their services or products - something they might find interesting - but nothing that made the buyer/client's experience any better, simpler or more useful.

I thought of the stuff the Daily Mail does on its web site where they put rollovers over images with links to where you can buy the clothes (should that sort of thing interest you). I think advertisers are looking for new ways to flog their stuff, but some are destined to be short lived when they're more annoying than useful. I found those images with lots of overlapping popups really clumsy to navigate (assuming I was interested in doing so).

What is really puzzling about the Getty link is that the licenses for editorial images exclude use for commercial purposes. Isn't sticking a stipple placed link into an editorial image using the image for commercial purposes?

gray area.
and it differs from country to country.
