I just found three of my landscape images on Gettyimages. Royalty free, how do they have the right?

That's weird... Did someone else sell it to Getty?

Yeah it痴 pretty diabolical of them passing off a photo that somebody else took and making quite a bit of money from it. I致e contacted them they wanted to know the image numbers so I did screenshots, waiting back to hear.

And Wendy I have quite a few images on Pinterest also, your edit is much more supreme.

Screenshots of the images themselves, if that's what you meant, are meaningless. They are looking to see if you have the original files. I am probably misunderstanding what you meant. And there's nothing "diabolical" about it; SOMEBODY submitted those images to Getty passing them off as their own.

Yes I think they came from 500px. Because that痴 the only site I have submitted those photos to.

I spoke to them and got this response:

Thank you for the phone conversation today.

Sorry that this has brought any inconveniences to you.

I have escalated this matter to our Copyright Team. They may contact you directly within 2 business days. Appreciate your patience on this.
