"Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global creative platform connecting brands and businesses to quality content, today announced TRUST, an official guiding framework that embodies Shutterstock's long-standing values and commitment to using AI responsibly in its products and workflows. TRUST, an acronym for Training, Royalties, Uplift, Safeguards and Transparency, reflects the core commitments that Shutterstock has actively upheld over the last two decades. In an unregulated and rapidly evolving industry, this framework can also serve as an action-driven checklist for companies experimenting with AI technologies and reiterates Shutterstock's lifelong, contributor-centric operating principles."

Sure. Tell a lie loud enough and often enough and many people will tend to believe it.

Actions speak louder than words. The executives at shutterstock have proven them to be very dishonest, untrustworthy individuals doing and saying what ever they can to make a fast buck, and line their own pockets while saying the above with a straight face.

Track record:
a) Shutterstock STEALS "data" first, THEN tells contributors they can "opt-out" assigning some random amount of $$.
b) They are creating a "tool" to go head to head with contributors.
c) They randomly reject actual good photos and videos.

Not to mention Jon Origner (sp?) cashing out bigtime at the expense of contributors.

The expression "fool me once... shame on you... fool me twice..."

Wouldn't really trust anything they said.

Am I dreaming or did I read 'Shutterstock' 'trust' and 'ethical' in the same sentence ?

We support artists with fair compensation.


I'd like to ask if there are any artists, that agree or believe this is true?

Anyone?

Those are:
- squeezing out contributors
- paying millions to unable CEOs
- disappointing shareholders nevertheless

Anyone want to submit a more fitting expansion of TRUST, eg. the S could stand for "Slashed Royalties"?
