+ - Getty Images is stealing Creative Commons pictures.->

Submitted by

epSos-de writes "Getty Images caused controversy for its aggressive pursuit of copyright enforcement on behalf of its photographers.

In reality Getty Images is stealing rights from photographers and publishers. Almost all of the pictures of epSos.de on Flickr were published under the Creative Commons license. Getty Images is licensing pictures from epSos.de through the Flickr account. After licensing the images they change the copyright from free to use to all rights reserved. It is a digital type of theft of free pictures.

The stolen picture is here:

They will probably try to sue people for using the free picture that was published under the creative commons license first."
