The retirement of
Getty Images Music Portal

 ‌ 

May 8, 2020

Dear Contributor,

We are notifying you that we are retiring the Getty Images Music Portal platform in early June. To meet the needs of our customers, we will be collaborating with Epidemic Sound to incorporate their royalty‑free music collection into our products.

As a result, your Getty Images Music Contributor Agreement and/or Pump Audio License agreement is terminated effective August 6, 2020.

Prior to the termination of your agreement, all music tracks will be removed from GettyImages.com/Music. However, customers will still be able to complete licenses until August 6, 2020.

While this was not an easy decision, we believe this will provide the most flexible solution for our customers.

Royalty Payments
Royalty statements and payments for sync licenses that occur during the period from the date of this notice until the termination of your agreement will continue to be reported and paid.

Performance Royalties
For Rights‑managed (RM) tracks, Getty Images has the right to continue collecting the performing rights organization (PRO) revenue for the publisher’s share of the applicable public performance royalties. However, we will only collect PRO revenue “earned” through to June 1, 2020. Any PRO revenue earned prior to June 1, will continue to be collected by Getty Images and reported and paid to you as usual.

After June 1, 2020, you will be able to collect the publisher’s share of PRO revenue earned after June 1, directly from your applicable society and continue to receive your writer’s share directly from your PRO. You can do this by contacting your PRO directly to reclaim the publisher’s rights on all registrations prefixed with “Pump Audio” that appear on your account.

Please visit the Music FAQ for additional information. Contact us if you have further inquiries.

Thank you for being part of Getty Images Music. We wish you all the best in your future projects.

Sincerely,

Paul
