Getty Images Sues Microsoft For Bing-fringement

As reported in GeekWire, Getty Images sued Microsoft yesterday for copyright infringement over Microsoft’s new Bing Image Widget, a software tool that allows websites to display images retrieved in Bing’s search results.  Getty Images alleges in its complaint that Microsoft “has turned the entirety of the world’s online images into little more than a vast, unlicensed ‘clip art’ collection for the benefit of those website publishers who implement the Bing Image Widget, all without seeking permission from the owners of the copyrights.”  Read the full article here, and Getty Image’s complaint here.
