What can happen? They can steal two clips from Dissolve cause their budget is only $5? Pleaseeeee. There is to much drama in almost any move from any agency. ONE agency thats different and brings in the money after only four months of contribution is (in my case) Dissolve. Do you guys really think that Istock, SS, P5 and many others dont have "high rollers" that are using unwatermarked images/audio/footage... I'm behind Dissolve until/if proven wrong. But also, I dont think like that. I think they have already harvested some big players (customers) with their business. Thats only my opinion. Not a fact. You can go ahead and give all of my 3000+ clips unwatermarked full res to any of the big companies. Great move. Nice try to bring in the cash.

Big customers already is not a surprise here, considering that their Director of Sales worked for Getty 7 years, and obviously does know what big fishes want....GO Dissolve!

While i understand that our work work in general is becoming a commodity,living with it and cheering it  on are two different things.

And to put things into perspective, I don't know what pond5 and shutterstock supposedly do behind my back.
I only know what they do or not (dare to) do, speak of,or propose in PUBLIC,and i am -more or less- OK with that.

I dont care if dissolve,which i started to contribute to a month ago despite my reluctance -which still stands- thinks that this might attract customers (it might) .
All i know is that this is drawing a picture of a business model which i dont like at all.
