No, I meant about if the money from the copyright infringers is shared with the artist. When someone pays 1500 dollars in punitive damages, does the artist get 20% of the money?

Sorry, if my post was confusing.

Maybe Shudderstock can help us with that, or others who have been with Getty for a long time. I never saw a "punitive damages royalty" or anything like that, but my portfolio was small, perhaps I got lucky and they never had to involve their lawyers.

This isn't about the embed program. I think we're asking: Have any long-time Getty contributors ever been paid a royalty where expenses were deducted for pursuing payment? In the section of the agreement tickstock pointed to, it only mentions deducting "Any costs associated with a claim due to a breach of the Agreement on your part." Not on the part of the person who used your image without permission.

I'm curious about how much those expenses are. Anyone ever had this happen?

From the FAQ:
If Getty Images successfully pursues unauthorized use of my image, how will I be paid?

You will be paid your normal royalty based on the license fee after we deduct any applicable unauthorized use detection and enforcement fees and expenses. These expenses are deducted from the total license fee so Getty Images and you share in these costs of pursuing your copyright infringement.

So, they get a punitive payment of $5000.  The license for a web based image was $10.  They spent $100 sending out a letter (which went to their own lawyers).  They subtract $100 from $10.  20% of -90 is -$18.  So, you own them $18.  Lol.
