Oh I thought you were referencing me since you quoted me.  You should have realized what Yuri said, you quoted that too.

Yuri isn't a liar, we all make mistakes, sure he meant a few months, not weeks ;D

"Few" could be a couple months, depends on what your perspective is.

Heaven forbid that we should indulge in semantic nitpicking.

The word "few" is ambiguous it just means a small amount, I'm not sure who you are saying is nitpicking but I had a teacher that always used to say nitpicking is a good thing because nits grow up to become lice.

I'm referring  back to Kelvin's unbelievable post about the meaning of 'exclusive':
http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=354349&messageid=6901065
So what iStock "exclusive" mean? Not what the definition on the crown icon says, for sure.
I didn't actually know that Yuri has said he's taking his images down from competing micros, but he's certainly not in a hurry to do so.


Hi Guys.
We have found a good distribution partner (Getty Images) for the kind of content we produce. We will be removing all images from microstock doing the next few weeks. Microstock, especially subscription sites, are not suited for the kind of high production cost images we produce.
Best Yuri

Why did it take you so long to realise that?
Have they bought over PI?

I got it.  ;)

A few weeks means 3 or 4 weeks.  Not 3 months.  So, not only is he getting whatever special "exclusive" IS rate negotiated, he's getting royalties from the thousands and thousands of images still sitting on every site besides SS.  Plus buyers are being misled (false advertising).  You'd think with 100 interns, it could be sped up a bit.

Well it has been a month now, maybe it will happen in your gray area between 4 weeks and 3 months?

No special agreement, anyone can get that deal if they license a few million dollars a year worth of stock images.

Try Urilux.

Does Roche know about it?
http://www.micglobal.co.uk/roche-urilux-system-i1006.html

"The Urilux 100 is the smartest test reader most suitable for rapid screening of diseases of the kidney and the urogenital tract, carbohydrate metabolism disorders (diabetes mellitus) and liver diseases and haemolytic disorders. "


Must admit the name 'Urilux' does sound more like a painful medical condition than a stock photographer.


Your right actually. Its Latin and stands for incontinence, comes from incontinecium-fatale.

That must explain the recent change from Urilux to Yurilux   ;D

Since we have agreed that we do this for money we can hardly blame Yuri for collecting as much as he can from other sites while being "exclusive" at iS.  The difference between what he is doing and what a few other people have done in the past is that he is obviously doing it with the full agreement and approval of iStock.

Whether or not this undermines the relationship between iStock and the buyers is not Yuri's problem, that's for iStock to deal with. And whether or not this undermines the relationship between iStock and other exclusives is not iStock's problem, it's just something else for their exclusive-exclusives to come to terms with.

Frankly, if iStock offered me the little crown and special enhanced payments while allowing me to carry on selling everywhere else I would snap up the deal in an instant.

why not....??

Why not make "xxx-LUX" version of your port, with another legal entity and go exclusive here and there.

The funny part will be when Yuri will drop the crown to submit to multiple sites again. With the current changes on istock, his sales must be one third of what he expected :)

Good summary, Paul.  I think that's the way many of us would react if the opportunity came up.

His sales might be doing great.  I don't think Getty would want the bad publicity of losing Yuri, after bending over backwards to get him.  I would also think he's signed up for a few years, how crazy would they have to be to let him sell with exclusive commissions and on other sites without locking him in for a few years?

True, but if Canadian law is anything like our (UK) law, several of the things iS have done in the past couple of years would invalidate the contract on their side (clear example: the broken  promise of grandfathering to the next level as an incentive to become exclusive). Sure, all it means is that if the applicable law is the same, we (if exclusive) could cancel our contract immediately rather than wait 30 days , but it could also let Yuri out (though his contract is presumably somewhat different from ours) at some point if they break their side.

We already pulled Yuri's content from Stockfresh and I'm curious about the rest of the sites. I wonder how long they are going to drag it out...  ;)

too bad you haven't done it on the 1st day :D

Press release is just around the corner. Professionals deal with Professionals. Getty is the right partner for us! :)

Wow, you've been bought my friend.

Professionals ( and 'partners') treat others ethically and with respect.  They don't, for example, give away perpetual redistribution rights for $12 to the photographer.
