Worthless.
Don't waste your time.

Don't waste your time.

It is happening __ whether you like it or not. The trend is obvious to any independent contributor with a mature portfolio. IS is losing and SS is winning and that process is steadily accelerating. IS have blown it and there's absolutely no chance of the situation reversing unless IS do something drastic and quickly __ which is very, very unlikely.

You can stick your head in the sand and deny all the evidence for as long as you want ... but it won't change the reality.

Hm, I'm sure IS will come up with something drastic no doubt about that - but will it be in our favor? That's probably something I can already answer now...

In a way they've already done it by stealth. Sales appear to be dropping whilst RC targets 'generously' remain the same. Unbelievable that so many, exclusives in particular, breathlessly expressed their gratitude and joy when the announcement was made. They say that turkeys don't vote for Christmas __ but it's not always true.

Must be the 55th thread about this sinking business and they havent sunk yet? Getty is their protector so they are not worried and not half as worried as many here. This is the way they want it, have geared it and for a purpose.

SS, have been the ultimate save for us independants for a long time now. Small signs of changes are beginning to emerge and they day will come, make no misstake when even SS will change. The question is, will it be for the better or worse.

DP and FT, are the latest examples, one flick of the search-order switch and they are falling and lagging behind. Thats how fragile it is.

Apple is falling as well, iPad mini and iPhone 5 prove that they are no longer innovating and leading.

But to answer your question, SS is upwards http://www.updowner.com/shutterstockcom/shutterstock.com
