Getty Makes 35 Million Photos Free To Use
Posted at 6:45AM Friday 07 Mar 2014
Getty Images, the world's largest photo agency, has made vast swathes of its library free to use, in an effort to combat piracy.
Millions of images - including famous shots of Marilyn Monroe and Barack Obama - will now be available without cost to blogs and social media sites.
The photos will be "framed" with a code that links back to Getty's website.
