Hi, Im the new forum rookie and I was thinking, I was just reading this...
"Getty Images and other users of this site to post user content, and commentary about user content, to third party social media sites. By submitting user content to this site, you authorize Getty images and/or any other user of this site to make such uses of your user content."
...and I was wondering if any of you had a problem with that? How that works?

For example:
if your file is used to illustrate an article, the buyer can share the article, including your image, on social media.
Getty can use your image in social media for marketing purposes.
Still, GI, as the old iS before it, does tend to word its contracts in the fuzziest terms, so you never know what they have in mind.

It's not unusual, e.g. Shutterstock
"Shutterstock may advertise and/or market your Content on social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and similar sites and the applications related thereto."
