    Getty Images files complaint in the EU over image scraping
    Getty Images, a large photography repository used by a variety of media outlets around the world, is filing an antitrust complaint against Google in the EU. The company is unhappy with Google Image Search's new functionality of showing high-resolution photos in image search results.

    The company's photography is usually watermarked, but Google Search results often bring up non-watermarked versions that were used by publications. Getty typically didn't have an issue with Google Search before as the images used to show up as small thumbnails by default.
