Also you suppose: That they are actually going to hold all the images they can, to squeeze out every penny, and prevent you from uploading to other places? And that's based on your personal logical deduction, because "otherwise they would not have the unreasonable ...clause" (I don't like that bit of the terms and maybe people who like to join and quit and join and quit, shouldn't like it either, but you are accusing and attributing motivations, based on your own imaginary reasons, not evidence?)

You bet that's what they are doing? Is that a fact or a hypothetical?  ;D

This is hypothetical. Just as the point of the article says: this is a legally possible situation and I'm stating that you probably do not want to check on yourself if this will hold true or not. Because if it will, you will be in trouble.

I agree with your statement that the tone of the article could be classified as a bit too strong, and I'm truly sorry if somebody's feelings were hurt in a way.

My feelings sure aren't hurt.  :)

I was just saying you used conjecture and hypothetical to make accusing claims and I didn't think that was fair or valid. And now you're asking if this will hold true. I'm not the one making the claims or attacking them. And I'm not going to defend a bad TOS that allows WS to hold images for months and months. I'm just saying, some assumptions are not based on facts, but personal opinions or what could happen or what might happen, and that's the bases of "Why you should never ever work with Wirestock"

I would have called it, Why I think people should take a close look at Wirestock and their terms ?

Some would say no, some have said YES, and I'm personally using the service to spread images to agencies that I'd never want to have an with, but I work the places I care about, on my own. We all have personal views, options and choices.

Yeah, what if they go out of business? Yup, what if an airplane should fall on my house...  ;)

Has anyone here tried getting Wirestock to remove files. I made a request over 90 days ago, but my images, which numbered less than 100, are still being sold on Adobe. Wirestock claim to have asked Adobe to remove them, but theyre still on Adobe for sale. Im not quite sure what I can do.
