You can't post them at WTAhell.com. Is it the same here :sad: ?

I don't understand what you are talking about... so you get a warning if you post a link to a picture of Getty Images?

Or what it is?

I think he means that you cannot post them because a part of the link changes in ******** when you copy it.

The photos are bad enough being in crappy low res (the samples) let alone by putting the gettyimages tag all over them. Just using the low res would be enough to put people off

If I understood Amanda's laconic repsonse, the policy is the same here as at WTAWorld.

You are not allowed to post either links, pictures or thumbnails of Getty pictures. If you do, you get a warning, and if you persist, you get more stern discipline.... some sort of virtual spanking.

I actually like GettyImages, they have lots of pics from all over the world covering many sports events. I don't know a better source like them :)

Here's the post from WTAworld.com. The same rules apply here:


Our friends at Getty Images are very protective of their copyrighted property and have insisted that we not allow people to post OR ATTACH Getty Images, or images containing the Getty watermark.

All Getty images posted or attached on this board will be deleted, and repeated offenses may result in your suspension.

Sorry, it's not our rule, but we do have to enforce it.
