Unconnected but ironic, an Undercurrent subscriber, who wishes to remain anonymous, simultaneously wrote to say, "Please be aware, Getty Images has a team lurking on the web, looking for their photos. While advertising a trip to South Africa, diving with the white sharks, we used photos supplied by the tour operator for our trip. What we did not know was that it was not their photo. It was from Getty Images. We pulled the trip due to little interest at the time, but one year later Getty notified us that we owed them for use of the photo. The current rate, less a small discount, was over a thousand dollars. After some negotiating it was lowered to $850. Some beware."
