I was going through this article today
http://www.onehourprofessor.com/getty-images-demand-letter-getty-images-lawsuit/

and saw how getty images gave a threatening letter of lawsuit against the person who used image without a proper license.

There are lot many images which are downloaded without a proper license or illegally. I really want that all agencies should work for the contributors and give a strict warning or sue them for illegal usage. This will prevent the damage and will increase the sales too.

I also recommend everyone to always buy a proper licences and be safe.

I want Getty to pay the image creators after they receive the extortion money generated by these letters. Instead they keep it all for themselves. Nice source of income for them.

This are not extortion letters.....this are letters directed to people that steal images and do not pay the proper licenses to use those images. I hope you are not one of them.

By the way I have images at Getty and get often payment labeled as compliance licenses and that is precisely that......recovered money of misuses of the license or even worse..... thievery. I for one am happy that those images that I have with them are somehow protected against "image rogues" Most "agencies" don't move a finger to fight those that think can go away with their shameful practices..........

Congrats.  You are the first person I've heard claim to get any recovered money based on these Getty letters or lawsuits.  Any one else get payments from Getty over recovered funds?
