you need to know this project.
I have signed in and hope everybody does the same.
worth a try.

With all due respect, I took a look and clicked on a few links. Looks like another blog. A union for stock artists wouldn't work, that's been established in another thread here. I see a bunch of links to individual photogs ports. So no, I will not be signing in.


Likewise, it's kind of amusing. Is this impressive or what? Following the link in the above message.

This link works http://monsterprojeckt.wordpress.com/stock-artists-union/

I did sign up but the emails I have been sent aren't about an artists union, they are about taking an expensive class action that I'm not sure would benefit contributors more than the solicitors.  They need a closed forum to discuss this properly.

+1   This sounds like one of those class action suits where you end up years later getting a check for $1.36, while the law firm gets $15 million for the settlement.

Exactly. And a union wouldn't work. Too many scabs, we see that already.

Well, I went back to the shutterstock forum to see what was up with this whole 292,000+ images being uploaded by a colossus, and could only find the thread by following the link from here.

Here's a link to the thread, which shutterstock has now locked.

http://submit.shutterstock.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=93850&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=345

It appears that the metadata was stripped somewhere between bigstockphoto, mediabakery and pixmac. And contributors copyrights were replaced with Photographed by colossus. But no resolution or answers to the questions were forthcoming.

So no one knows how and why contributors' copyright data got stripped and replaced. That is a HUGE problem.

Strange how little discussion there is about this.  Am I the only one getting the emails?  Perhaps people don't want to discuss the situation in an open forum but I do wish there was somewhere to talk about it.

Ignore this I found the answer.
