"Getty’s shares have declined more than 47 percent in the last year"

Left me speechless! 1.5 BILLIOn $$$, and yes, I wonder what will happen for Istock when it gets sold. And I wonder how such a sale will affect the exclusives at Istock? The outcome will be so interesting and extremly important for the whole industry. My personal guess is that Corbis=Microsoft=Bill Gates tries to get it, but I wonder if such a monopoly would be legal? SY

Here the discussion at Istock forum: http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=63451 I wonder how long they allow it to go on ;-) SY

Interesting, why do you hate exclusives?  dont you think you will lose most of your sales everywhere if all exclusives will go to other stocks? :) I think you know that you will lose. So you may want to only  wish them good luck instead of wishing negativity after buyout. 

I'm quite sure that things will be ok with exclusives as they are now, dont worry about us ;)

haha,
hi anouchka,
first of all, why do you think `we` hate exclusives? :)

second, i was an exclusive myself once, nearly all turkish forum (that i moderate and invite all of them) members are exclusive, and i told most of them to be exclusives when they first start,
i just tried to mention, it will be exciting, since competition will be harder... it will be harder on othersites for sure, but it will be easier for us at istock ;)

third, i didnt wish `negativity` to exclusives at that sentence or any place
,
and last, no i dont think i will lose most of my sales everywhere, i have a very well established system for uploading to nearly 10 stocksites with over 3000 images online everywhere except istock(i have nearly 900 deactivated images on istock, the difference between my portfolio sizes is not because of rejections)

i hope i could explain myself, it is a very short sentence that you take into consideration, and i didnt mean what you come up from that sentence

Anouchka, I don't think anybody here "hates" Istock exclusives. I hope nobody here "hates" anybody! But I feel that Istock treads non-exclusives not as good as they deserve. So I think, just my personal opinion, there might be a lot of resentiments around  against some of Istock's specific attitudes but surely not against a specific istock contributor, might s/he be exclusive or not. And btw I am very happy that you decided to join this forum and have started to post also in the English boards.  :D SY

we could buy istock with donations, have it managed by a council and rise the commission to 100% ;)

Good idea, but we would still need some money for marketing, SY *pondering where to find 1.5 billion $*

I think if the community gathers the money and buy itself it won't need marketing for like ever because that's all the news will be talking about ;)

Don't think if they ever could get their b*** up to do something so revolutionary!? Perhaps we should found a facebook group "Buy Gettys" SY

2.4bn...see if only we were a bit more orginised we could have raised that. I guess it was in dollars...with the exchange rate at the moment I think I could have found that amount down the back of my sofa.
