- Interview with CEO and Founder of PhotoShelter, Allen Murabayashi:
Question: As an entrepreneur or investor, what are your thoughts on competition? How do you view competition?
Allen Murybayashi: The competition is really Getty Images, and in this respect it´s tough because they are a very well established player with lots of big contracts in place. However, there´s also a lot of unrest in the industry and people are looking in particular for ways to license images very easily for usage on the web. In this respect, there is a huge opportunity for an Internet upstart to come in and shake things up. Getty uses the Internet as a channel; they are not an Internet company. We think this distinction actually ends up being pretty crucial in the operating philosophy.
