I'm 100% for 2nd Feb idea. The problem is that the impact could be low. How many people, buyers are aware of what happens? Many stunning images will be removed from iStock but how to see what's gone? iStock has advantage because you can see what is exclusive there but no way to see what is missing. It is not completely true because DT and FT have few exclusive images but nothing serious.
My idea would be to create site/page where we could upload watermarked images with link to sites where to buy them (in my case SS). These images should be NOT available at IS/Getty and be rather unique. A kind of high quality library: "Vendetta images library - masterpieces not present at iStock".
The problem is that probably the majority of sites, like Flickr, forbids watermarked images and links...
BTW, my crown is gone. Viva liberta!

How about, everybody that likes that idea donates to a paypal account and from the money buy a Ktools kit and a webdomain ( wont be more then 210 dollar) and open up a store following your idea? Have one man set it up and pay him for that once off and off you go. Only problem is to sort out the payments to the contributors. Otherwise put the images up on PicturEngine?

"Vendetta images library"
Very clever idea IMO.  It would be a lot of work, but I would contribute $, as Poncke suggests doing.
