Getty Scores, Gets Cash from Pinterest


Getty Images and Pinterest announced a partnership where Pinterest pays to put meta data next to Getty's images that are used on the site. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. First Getty buys the top couple of rows in Yahoo! Images and now they get paid to be in Pinterest. Getty has said that their fee willl be split with the photographer that took the photo, and author Tim Barribeu says he thinks Pinterest will use that data to sell ads against.
