    Microstock collapse?

    I strongly think that better times for microstock will come. When two,three or four things get in the right place : 1 ) Termination ( or end ) of Shutterstock's deal with facebook ( all those thievery web sites use same code - leakage from Shutterstock's API ( application programming interface ) trough FB) 2) When Shutterstock fix broken API 3) when Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) vote on a new copyright directive in early July, and hopefully accept that new " Copyright Directive " 4) When ALL microstock agencies raise content approval standard.

    @Rudy Umans It is so nice to see that you are so interested in this and topics like this on forum at all. Considering that your last photo uploaded on SS is 5 months ago and you have 797 images in portfolio and 14,699 posts. Almost looks like that you are more interested in chat than in photography Do you get any money for activity on this forum ? P.S. @Srdjan Randjelovic Those sites pop out like a mushrooms after rain novadays.
  6. I hope that many of us won't be here to see that. I hope that we will be at agencies that actually respect their contributors.
  7. P.S. Just one " nickle collection " answer here ? Funny....they usually go in pairs
  8. Also : " falling feels like flying till you hit the ground "
  9. The sole aim of SS is to be known in a business books as company who killed itself.
  10. I decided to stop uploading here.
