Has anyone read the definition of Getty under Wikipedia?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Getty_Images#cite_note-6

This is a quote from their page
"In September 2010, Getty Images IStockphoto Brand announced plans to cut payments to contributors by as much as 30% starting in 2011, while claiming that it furthered the interest of those same contributors. The royalty paid to non-exclusive contributors becomes as low as 15%[5] on the 1st day of 2011. Getty's motivation was greeted with skepticism by the iStockphoto community. Thousands of messages of complaint from contributors were posted on the iStock forum site within a few hours of the announcement,[6] "But money isnt going to be what makes you all happy." said CEO Thompson in his reply to the complaining contributors.[7]"

They even have the link to the post on iStock where that is said. I thought that was kinda interesting. It looks like that is going to be a "But money isnt going to be what makes you all happy." trademarked saying..lol

Sure, start selling T-shirts, making money and the next thing you know, Getty will want 85% of those sales.

That is so funny, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if they did.

Heh you better get them designed before Getty gets it trademarked!!!!.lol
