Getty Images announced it will free up some 35 million images for non-commercial use. This decision is a big deal for blogger and Pinterest fans alike, since Getty is known as a copyright troll for going after people using its unauthorized images online. Shutterstock though has become successful for being the "anti-Getty" and this is seen as a direct attack for competition. Shutterstock has seen its price jump over 200% this past year and so far the Getty freebies haven't hurt the stock.
