This is good and as expected.  But what's next?  Maybe Pond5 clips appearing on Shutterstock instead.  Will they be available for Shutterstock video subs?  I hope not.  At least exclude Pond5 exclusive clips from Shutterstock video sub and make Pond5 exclusive clips for non subscription only, I hope.

"Pond5 Collection Leaving Adobe Stock"

Are you a Pond5 video contributor?  Many of the Pond5 uploaded videos have been available on Adobe Stock as a part of GPP (Global Partnership Program).  Since Shutterstock bought Pond5, it's a natural course of action to take Pond5 clips off the Adobe Stock and maybe many other GPP sites such as Alamy etc.  Email from Adobe Stock as follows.

"Hello Stock Customer,

We are reaching out to you to inform you that Pond5 is no longer an Adobe Stock contributor, and therefore the Pond5 footage collection will be removed from Adobe Stock in 30 days (July 29, 2022).

If you currently have Pond5 video clips in your license history, please re‑download them by July 29, 2022, after which you will not be able to access any Pond5 video clips on Adobe Stock.

Thank you for being a valued customer,

The Adobe Stock team"

This suggests Shutterstock is trying to outflank its primary competitor by removing Pond5's videos. I guess stay tuned...

As they should.  I've never liked Pond5's GPP selling on Adobe Stock and Alamy.  Basically, the same market as Pond5 but we the contributors end up getting much less after Adobe Stock and Pond5 taking their % from sales.

I don't think p5 contributors will have their content in SSTK soon. During merge, the P5 CEO explained that they were not planning to do it.
I share Jo Ann vision. it's more a case of cutting resources of clips from primary business rival.

I think P5/Shutterstock wasn't planning to do it in immediate future.  After that, who knows.  This is bad for Pond5 contributors who price their videos dirt cheap like $25/HD.  I didn't have any of my clips on Adobe Stock via Pond5. So, it's all good.

This will be interesting to watch.

It basically makes pond5/ss total market leader in video, but especially in editorial.

How will Adobe react?

They can start by accepting editorial stills and video from all contributors.

I would love it if they finally agreed to take editorial. There is so much money in it.

I understand they would need a specialized team though and especially news is not their genre.

Most of their customers want commercial use only.

Butwe would all be happy if they just sold more files.

Removing the pond5 collection means more visibility for direct uploaders. Most of my videos are not yet on Adobe. Time to change that.
