Is Using Stock Photos Found On The Internet Copyright Infringement?


Getty Images has filed five lawsuits in the month of January alone for copyright infringement. This comes as a shock as Getty has previously been known for sending out settlement demand letters but never following up on them. According to a representative of Getty, the lawsuits function to “send the message that we will take legal action when someone uses our content and is not willing to pay a license fee.” Additionally, the lawsuits will protect “the creative process of artists and photographers” who supplied the photographs.
