This is amazing on many levels. One of the most beautiful fruit of the existence of the internet itself. Technology used for living on this place in an equanimous way. Wow. Thank you Google for recognizing the importance of this.

Photographers Being Sued For Photos Containing Designer Furniture

Email I received just now from Getty Images:

Attention all Flickr Collection on Getty Images Contributors!

You may have heard about a recent case (actually more than one case) where Getty Images and some of our photographers have had claims lodged against us in French court for images which include designer furniture, even as a minor part of the image.

This is a serious issue that involves potential liability for you as photographers.

The French courts have found in favor of the Le Corbusier rights-holders who initiated these claims. While we disagree with the decision and we are appealing it, we are very mindful that for now, it is a valid decision. It is critical that you understand that any claim like this one is extremely serious and requires action on your part in order to protect your interests, not just ours. We will continue to fight this decision, but in the meantime we must continue to actively pull content from our site that may be deemed infringing. We simply cannot identify all problematic images as quickly without your active participation. And quick action is vital.

Most importantly, if you believe that any of the images you have uploaded to us might possibly include any designer furniture, please email the Getty Images ID numbers to kate.fensch@gettyimages.com as soon as possible! The sooner we can identify and remove potentially infringing images the better we can reduce potential legal problems.

We are including links to information and FAQs that give more information on this issue and we strongly request that you read them and study the visual guides included.

Main article http://contributors.gettyimages.com/article_public.aspx?article_id=2251


You can also read the original Le Corbusier complaint here:
In English http://contributors.gettyimages.com/img/articles/downloads/Le%20Corbusier%20Complaint-English%20Translation-August%203%202011.pdf
Original in French (clearer photos) http://contributors.gettyimages.com/img/articles/downloads/Le%20Corbusier%20Complaint%20French.pdf

Please note: because we are still engaged in litigation, we are very limited in what comments we can make or questions we can answer.
If you do have questions please email kate.fensch@gettyimages.com especially for any specific images you believe may be a problem.

This is only for images you have on the gettyimages.com site. We cannot answer questions about images you have posted on Flickr or elsewhere.
Thank you for your help and attention to this very important matter.

I have a huge web crush on Stack Exchange. They're so cool & they don't take themselves way too seriously.

I have a sketchbook of Vancouver maps I drew over my visits up there. This summer I plan to sketch maps of Melbourne.

Takes 30 seconds. Less if you're a fast typer.

This guy rules.

I just hope he doesn't inspire everyone to turn their sites into metaphors like when shockwave/flash got popular, e.g. "Open this door to read about us".

But in the meantime, great SVG/HTML5 implementation :D
