From an eMail from iStock...

"Completing this form will create an *opportunity* to be paid additional royalties."

It looks like they are attempting to collect money from a fund in France, but I feel like they're leaving something out...

It sounds a bit like the DACS payment we get every year from Alamy ?

Yeah, iStock collects DACs 'for us' (taking their percentage) too, no option to opt out to do it ourselves. I can't imagine how they do it with RF sales - are they really doing massive web searches and sorting out the few relevant ones?

They've missed out that completing the form would create and opportunity for them to get even more.
However, when I was concerned that they were collecting DACS, I checked and it's within the weasel wording of their contract, of course, not exactly spelled out.

That's it. See Collective Licensing Royalties on Getty's website.

OK - so how do you actually sign this thing?
Doesn't accept text as far as I can see...

And their commission is 50% of our collected royalties... See ADAGP - Payback Form Request on Getty's website.

First choose a language at the top of the form. Fields are already pre-populated with your informations in the form corresponding to the language you chose. Then choose a signature by clicking on the yellow arrow.

That's weird, because the form told me that French is required, then I filled everything it offered by clicking yellow button and then it appeared to be signed and filled only in French. English fields are empty.
Does it count?

I think the language is only for your convenience, it should not matter whether you signed it in english or french. The most important is that you understand what you sign for ;)

How do you sign it? I mean how do you actually physically do it?
I can't get my cursor to show on the line for name, signature or date.  :-[
Probably hardly worth the hassle in my case, but still ...

I had that problem. You have to select the language - and then the fields with name etc miraculously appear.

They will get 'their' share of anything we earn.
