Almost too late, welcome to the party, Getty. Send a friendly letter to your friends over at the MPIAAA if you would please.

Dude is uglier than homemade sin.  Why is anyone fighting over his image...

So what you're saying is that now I'll have to hit print screen and crop the images I want? Bastards!!

Last time they sent me a complaint it was about a picture of my company's office that I took for the "About Us" web page.  As the actual copyright holder, I sent a request they specify where else it was used so I could follow up with unauthorized users. They never replied.

It's really easy to get around a disabled save in the right in Firefox, just right click, view page info, then choose the media tab and look through the links and find what you're looking for, copy it, paste it in the address bar, and then you can just save it.

I've gotten a few letters from Getty about "stolen" images, so I'm getting a kick.

I feed the Getty people lunch once a week, so I'm getting a kick, etc.

Since the letters from the scary lawyers wasn't scary enough. Getty decided to step it up a notch.

Man, that's weird. You'd think they would know how to use silverware by now.

I've worked extensively with folks who came from Getty.

You're about right.
