Getty Images makes millions of photos free to use

Getty Images has announced it has made up to 35 million of its library free to use, as the world’s largest photo agency seeks to combat piracy, BBC has reported. The images, including famous shots of Marilyn Monroe and Barack Obama, will now be available without cost to blogs and social media sites, and will be “framed” with a code that links back to Getty’s website, the firm said. The decision was made after Getty realised that thousands of its images were being used without attribution. “Our content was everywhere already,” said Craig Peters, a business development executive at the Seattle-based company.
