no more files in Yuri's Fotolia portfolio.

impatiently waiting for press-release.

my own speculation about things we will not see from press-release:

GI got 60% of peopleimages, arcurs production and related companies
Yuri got equivalent of approx. 6 years expected profit and contract for himself as a CEO with very decent salary. plus good contracts for key figures in companies.

Press release is just around the corner. Professionals deal with Professionals. Getty is the right partner for us! :)
What you mean is they gave you the best deal.
No doubt you'll change your tune again sometime along the way.

Of course, successful businesses recognise changes in the market  and change direction when needed, to grow and be successful. Nothing wrong with that. If you dont you end up like Kodak.

i believe you misunderstand the meaning of "Partner" word in Yuri's statement.

I believe Yuri is using the word 'Partner' in the way that someone might whilst sharing a prison cell with a huge inmate called 'Bubba'.

Who cares? If I were Serban I might jib at being called "unprofessional" and bin his account forthwith.
Personally, I have always regarded Yuri as an arrogant, unprofessional, self-obsessed .... err ... individual from the time that he dismissed criticism of the fact that a picture on SS had a fake  "reflection" that didn't match by saying that maybe buyers wanted pictures like that.
Oh, and he said it was a trainee to blame, anyway. (Has he ever admitted a mistake?)
Yuri and his "professionalism" will fit well with iStock.

Maybe you can explain why he chose Bubba over Jon then?

'Long' Jon??????  :D

He will be out of the business after about a year or so.

Almost a Standard procedure when a company is taken over or goes to the market

Probabluy Bubba offered him the best deal. No puzzle.

So the best deal is sharing a prison cell with 'Bubba' rather than continuing as things were as an independent?  Being independent must be pretty bad then?

More likely he got a phenomenally good deal, without too many restrictions, apparently, and he'll be more than happy to keep his head down and not rock the boat.

Since when is getting a phenomenal deal without too many restrictions like sharing a prison cell with 'Bubba'?

Haven't a clue. The only meaning I knew for Bubba was a Jewish grandmother, until I saw the link above. The whole Bubba reference made no sense to me.

Isn't this all old news by now? Yuri isn't a God...he is in for the same reason we all are.

Everyone here has turned iStock into this mythical beast that devours us poor little contributors. Yes they have made some odd moves and we can speculate all day, but it is all out of context. You'd be a fool to think they are making this and any other decisions on a whim and prayer. Yes they are taking risks, but they have data and reasoning behind their moves.  And is it really a shock they are looking after their own interests? The reality is we all have a choice to continue play or not. Don't think for a second that any other agency can't be bought.

Yuri made a business decision. I wish him the best.

I think we can complain all day (in fact we do), but I encourage everyone to go out and continue to learn and make better content...or bail out of the game.

ok,... i'll lock this thread now.  I think this thread has deteriorated a tad and isn't exactly discussing the issue anymore.
