Browsing through Istock Video and Getty brought me to a contributor who uses the same set and same models for clips on both sites.

On Getty I saw some of his clips from "Photodisc"

Also on Getty other clips of the same set and models from "Digital Vision"

and then some clips are on Istock

There are no identical clips but similars.

I personally don't have a problem with that. I'm just curious if Getty/Istock approve of contributions that almost look the same at completely different price points. It would appear to me that Getty would try to kill itself by offering similar clips at a much lower price.

For example, people upload the same images to the micros and Alamy. Well different sites - different customers. But with Getty/Istock there is even a higher chance that a Getty buyer tries a search on Istock and finds a similar clip at a much lower price.

Kind of confusing, right?
