    The previous link bt Dr Neal Krawitz provides a link to Getty's fair use explanation however when I attempted to follow the link it would not open as Getty's Robots.txt file is blocking access to it ? interesting

    I conducted an reverse image search using TinEye and found that the particular images appeared to be owned by many companies?

    There were 49 results showing the photo however to the right of the page it showed certain collections containing the photo and how many instances the collection contains.

    Who owns the image then?. Wikimedia states it is public domain.
    They cant all own the photo surely? so somebody is making money by exploiting rights they dont have.
    I accept Flickr,and wikimedia dont actually sell them.

    Filter by collection

    • alamy.com (1)
    • everystockphoto.com (2)
    • flickr.com (2)
    • foter.com (1)
    • gettyimages.com (1)
    • wikimedia.org (5)

    I have recently been contacted by Getty images and to be fair the only question they asked was "Did we have a licence?"
    When I contacted the uploader of the image (No names , no pack drills) it was clear that they did not have a licence. Getty were informed and they requested its removal, seemed fair to me, so the image was taken down.

    Probably the wise move. No point in entanglements without a cause. If it matters it's probably possible to serve the dish in another way or find a different picture. Bots are stupid and easily distracted.
