Embrace the future! I just feel the urge of starting a new blog!
Getty Images Admits It Can't Stop Internet Sharing, Opens Up Its Photos For Free
If you go to the Getty Images website, you'll see millions of images, all watermarked. There are more than a hundred years of photography here, from FDR on the campaign trail to last Sunday's Oscars, all stamped with the same transparent square placard reminding you that you don't own the rights. If you want Getty to take off the watermark, you'll have to pay for it.

Starting now, that's going to change. Getty Images is dropping the watermark for the bulk of its collection, in exchange for an open-embed program that will let users drop in any image they want, as long as the service gets to append a footer at the bottom of the picture with a credit and link to the licensing page. For a small-scale WordPress blog with no photo budget, this looks an awful lot like free stock imagery.

It's a real risk for the company, since it's easy to screenshot the new versions if you want to snag an unlicensed version. But according to Craig Peters, a business development exec at Getty Images, that ship sailed long ago. "Look, if you want to get a Getty image today, you can find it without a watermark very simply," he says. "The way you do that is you go to one of our customer sites and you right-click. Or you go to Google Image search or Bing Image Search and you get it there. And that's what's happening… Our content was everywhere already."

What's cool about this is that based on the simple linguistic rule of language fracturing right away you can tell that all of the romance languages originated in Italy.
Reason: where a language is the most fractured over the smallest geographical area is virtually always where it originated.
As an example, take a hypothetical alien visitor to Earth. If the visitor didn't know better, he might think that since North America has the largest population of English-speakers, it follows that North America is where English originated. However, as we know, this is not the case at all. The alien observer would instead have to look not for where the largest number of native speakers are, but rather, for the location in which said language is the most highly fragmented over a small geographic area. Right away he would notice that the British Isles have many more distinct dialects of English than does North America, and he would then rightly conclude that they are probably the geographic location wherein English was born.
The next thing an astute observer would look for is the nearest most closely related language to English. If he did that, he would get to Frisian and would then rightly conclude that English and Frisian have a relatively recent common linguistic ancestor and that English, in large part, is basically a western Germanic language since northwestern Europe is where the two most nearly approximate one another.
The upshot is that obviously the same goes for Romance languages and that this map shows exactly that. Thanks Italy !
