“Getty will get its pound of flesh one way or another,” photography journalist Daniela Bowker told the BBC News website. “It has not gone into this blithely. It has got a plan.”
She added many of her contacts were unhappy about the move.
“My Twitter feed has exploded with very angry photographers going ‘I don’t want Getty giving away my images for free’,” she said.
