31 peolorat Grow some balls Google. Response should have been "Getty, implement robots.txt to stop us from indexing your pictures or we'll simply remove you from Google altogether".
22 teary_ayed I use view image all the time. When I go to some website which published the image, often I can't see anything because I won't allow browser scripting and javascript on sites I don't trust, and more and more, if you don't allow such, the content you're looking for won't show (although some sites have figured out how to show you only advertising or their template without scripting, they know what you're looking for, but you can't find it without exposing yourself to security issues caused by enabling scripting and javascript as well losing personal privacy). This should be good for Google's competitors, Google's better features are slowly being whittled away.

14 Lokostrike Google used to be good. Shame what's happening to them now.
3 ArticulatedRectum What a joke. One media company tells google what to do? Why didn't google just offer not to show anything from Getty Images, at all? I use image search all the time. And I DO expect to be able to view any image I want. And save it, too. There has to be some work-around in the making, because this is bullshit.
7 Skogbeorn This is ridiculous.

2 RosemaryFocaccia Anger at Google?? It was Getty complaining to the European Commission that necessitated this change.
2 phaiz55 Really this is only going to effect people who are less "tech savvy" than others. You can do the same thing with a right click and view image. Sure it's an extra click for everyone but it isn't "gone" entirely. Yet.
1 joelp54 This is easy to do when Google owns over 60% market share.
1 dimmskii No matter what, you can always retrieve media in Firefox using 'page info'. Even if the media has no URL on the server. Hey, I have an idea! Use javascript to send each pixel in whatever color depth you want via WebRTC and render it per-pixel in a WebGL canvas. Now you need to be even more 'tech savvy' to rip the image or video (yet you still can). Not traffic-efficient, though. They should just stick to watermarking... most fool proof method out of all.
