In previous years we had that beloved cannibalization thing going on in the world of stock images: "The analyst warned that buyers may emigrate to discount sites such as iStockphoto. 'We believe micropayment sales could potentially cannibalize (Getty's) royalty-free sales'", Piper Jaffray´s Aaron Kessler told the Houston Chronicle (report not online anymore) in mid-2006.
Also in 2006 the meanwhile famous "If someone’s going to cannibalize your business, better it be one of your other businesses" from JDK followed (here at Jeff Howe), and lately, with respect to the music business, the term reappeared as "willingness to cannibalize" (watch the different context and the "I would argue that had" at the beginning) in one of his interviews during MIDEM.
Pump [Audio] Artists Getting Pumped: Pump doesn't have a forum so this seems to be the only venue for discussion. I received a letter today notifying me that Getty would now be taking 65% of the licensing rights for Pump Artists. I realize that Getty does do a lot of work, but the actual independent creator of the stuff they sell getting only 35% is f#!king ridiculous. If they were paying for my studio time or equipment that would be different. It seem they are again taking advantage of the quantity of artists that are desperate to make a buck. Thread in the iStockaudio forum. In and since 2007 the split was 50/50. - Jo Ann has more details over there.
