Huge news for anyone wanting free photos for a blog: Getty Images has announced that it will make something like 35 million of its photos available for free. On the one hand, it is unfortunate though not unsurprising that in the Internet age it is impossible to keep people from pirating photos, videos, and music. On the other hand, however, the Getty executives' view that they should look for the opportunity in the situation rather than just continue cracking down legally is an intriguing, positive approach.

  1. I've grown accustomed to Wikimedia Commons, where you can get good photos without a watermark, you just have to give credit where credit is due. Maybe I'll go back and give Getty Images another look.
