About Partnership Deal between Google & Getty Images
Based on the report this Partnership Deal means Google will be able to use Getty Images’ content in its products and services. The partnership is the result of conversations between Google, photographers, and publishers about how the search engine could better provide attribution in image search.
The CEO of Getty Images Dawn Airey also conveyed the message that “We will license our market leading content to Google, working closely with them to improve attribution of our contributors’ work and thereby growing the ecosystem,”
Earlier in Last Year Google was fined with a record breaking €2.42 billion by European Union for manipulating Search Results in favor its own Shopping Services over relevant results offered by competitors. Now a days Google is facing high scrutiny from European regulators over its Search Engine, which has led Google to make structural changes to few of its services overseas.
