CEOs dont get usually fired for nothing, something smelly happened but we will never know the details.
maybe as you say they just wanted obscene profits rather than good profits ....
KT told us he'd been charged with raising profits (or was it turnover?) by 50%, which was a huge target.

Pretty horrendous partner they've chosen. It's a shame that Getty still manages to keep cashing in on their brand recognition, even though properties like TS are so out of touch with what the Getty brand was known for.

And funny, this from the original post...

The company has a deal in place with Getty Images-owned Thinkstocks.com and is crowdsourcing the content, giving users the chance to nominate ten photos from the archive site that theyd like to see added to Googles collection.



They didnt give users the chance to nominate ten photos, did they?

They did.

They promoted this on Google+ and as of December it was still being discussed. Someone requested more vectors. Awesome.

I think I saw this thread back then but didn't give it a lot of thought because I just assumed we would get our lousy .28/sub download for each usage.  Silly me.   ::)

History repeating itself. Kinda of a scary thought. Hopefully with the actions of the photographers this time it won't repeat itself again at Getty or any of the other agencies which I am sure are watching this situation very closely.
