Could it not have been images that were submitted before 17 may and were sitting in the review queue till being approved in June? Some agencies take 4 weeks to review.

Sure he could, but don't you think that at this time he already planned to be exclusive on iStock?

No review, no queue, instant online, maybe your friend Yuri is not honest, is it your aim? ;D
Or maybe he's thinking that Mostphoto is the future of microstock...after Istock and Getty, of course.

Can we make a separate Yuri Section as well like we did for Symbiostock?

I don't see why he should be allowed to soften the blow of turning exclusive at IS with keeping his portfolio up where is should not be. Live and let live, by I do find it very irritating....

What control do we have on what companies will do? We can talk but most likely nothing will change...

If you can't tell the difference between yourself and Yuri, then maybe you have a bigger ego than he does.  Any of us that bring as much as he does to the table would get the same deal.  Be positive, if you work hard you too can get special deals.

what are you talking about?

so Yuri told Getty: I am going to keep my portfolio at Dreamstime and Mostphotos ;D

I'd like a special secret deal, wouldn't you?

actually I would be embarrassed, at least do it properly, do you think that Yuri/Getty name is clean due to these facts? (its not, at least in the eyes of this community and for sure outside too)

I wouldn't turn one down, but mostly I'd simply like a level playing field and an unbiased search engine.  That goes for all the sites.

Why shouldn't exclusive content get a biased search?  It's good for the business to have unique content and the only way to get it is to promote it.

weren't they promoting thinkstock?

Oh yeah, I see your point.  It's worked out great for Istock's business.   ::)

Just thinking - we could have NORAD build us a Yuri Tracker like they do for Santa...

No, thank you. I like transparency and openness in business. It may not always be possible, but the more transparent, the better the business. At least this has been my experience.

The whole "secret handshake" private club mentality isnt me.
