GOOGLE MENDING RELATIONSHIP WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS?

THE STORY

Google’s new announcement can do good for its relationship with photographers.

WHAT IS THE ANNOUNCEMENT?

Google announced a small change. Now the search engine giant will include creator and credit metadata in photos shown as a display result on Google Images. Also, in coming weeks, it will add copyright notice metadata as well. This means visitors can know who the photographer is and who owns the rights.

The creator is generally the person who took the image however, credit might include additional rights holders who provided the image.

HOW TO ACCESS THE INFORMATION ON GOOGLE IMAGES?

To get the information, you need to click on three tiny dots shown on an image, then click Image Credits, and you will get a pop-up box which will have the information. Google has entered a partnership with two organizations for this act. Google has collaborated with CEPIC (Center of the Picture Industry), which represents 600 photo agencies and libraries all over European countries, along with associates in North America and Asia as well.

CEPIC comprises of members of agencies irrespective of size, covering new outlets and art galleries. It also represents bigshots of photography world such as Reuters,

Getty, and Shutterstock.

Another organization with which Google is collaborating is International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) which represent some of the biggest news agencies, including Associated Press (AP), the BBC, the New York Times and Agence France-Presse (AFP).

In past, Google has incurred fury of numerous photographers and agencies for copying images from the original source and showing them in high-resolution format instead of thumbnails. One of the reputed agencies, Getty filed a complaint with EU a few years back over the issue. Although, Google and Getty declared peace when they entered a licensing partnership.

The latest step shows that Google is reading to build the bridge and mend the relationships in the photography world.

As per Google blog post by Google product manager Ashutosh Agarwal, besides the metadata, Google is also indulging with CEPIC and IPTC to “create better usage guidance for photographers, photo agencies, and publishers to include copyright and attribution information in image metadata”.

Earlier Google announced that it was refreshing search based properties including Google Images. The company mentioned that it was revamping the search algorithm within Google Images in order to put a greater impact on image placement, the freshness of content and web page authority.
