For Sale = One Large Stock Photo Agency

If you have not heard, Getty Images is going up for sale. Pretty serious stuff and it effects my biz in a funny way. But the best break down of it I have found so far is the following:

"But, it is not because a company is for sale that one, it will find buyers, two, it will disappear. This is not the end of Getty images, so those that rejoice, or those that predict the apocalypse of this industry should tone down and listen. At $850 million a year, Getty Image has proven that this industry has a huge potential. And for a company that started with $30 million, $1,5 Billion is not that bad. In other words, I fail to see where is the failure."

Interesting take.
