These Companies Are Supporting the Biggest Photography Rights Grab We’ve Seen in a While

You've probably read the Photoshelter Blog post about Unsplash and why their competitor Squarespace is screwing photographers. I've kept my thoughts to myself for a while until a buddy showed me the scope of the Unsplash awards.

It draws you in with nice designs, sleek marketing, and the variety of awards that are being judged by big wigs at various companies. I've seen this before with EyeEm--a company that for a long time I stood behind until I felt betrayed by their portrayal of Photo Editors as nothing but an algorithm. To that end, I see Unsplash as doing nothing else but the absolute worst rights grab I've ever seen. .
