Response to Essay on Micro Payment Stock Photos

Just a thought....

How long will it take before a microstock pic attracts a big fat lawsuit because the model/location are not properly released...?

I think that details like these will force the stock libraries to become more careful with what they accept... and that comes at a price...

Others, however, will probably pass the risk (of the lawsuit) on to the photographer...

This is not just an issue for Microstock. e.g. Alamy does not require proof of model / property releases for images. iStockPhoto is actually one of the better ones in this regard. They will not accept any picture containing a recognisable face without simultaneously uploading a copy of a signed model release. Other sites are much less rigorous though.

yeah, quite agreed.

If anyone is going to sit on a lawsuit it is alamy or myloupe.

The micros (or most of them) are probably the more careful agencies.
