Can we say that holiday shopping season just got started? I think it actually started when parent of #2 snapped parent of #5. Now #1 takes #6. What should #3 and #4 do, merge? This way Big 6 will be reduced to Big 3 and rest of small players sooner or later will bite the dust. Wait, there is still the "biggest looser" of microstock industry Corbis they can drop big money on something change the balance of forces.

Well, if there is any merging I just hope that DT swallows FT and not the other way around.

No chance of that happening I think. FT are possibly nearly twice the turnover of DT already and the gap is widening on a monthly basis. Also didn't FT recently get a $100M 'investment' too? That's acquisition-sized funding.

Thinking about it, if you happened to own an established agency and you wanted to get the best price when selling it, then it would help if you could do something to rapidly boost profits.  Of course reducing the commissions paid to contributors would do very nicely if you could get away with it. Hmm.

That's very surprising. Where did you get your data? I would have thought it the other way around.

Interesting. Hard to tell what $50 mil could do in micros other than acquisitions.
