Getty gobbles up JupiterImages

Following the recent announcement of Getty's succesful aquisition of JupiterImages, more details have emerged of plans.

Time will tell what that means for the StockXpert microstock site, which Jupiter had owned... And of course, Getty already own iStockPhoto

Most commentators would expect a little more consolidation/acquisition - the traditional stock agencies need to control the microstock industry - and as they can't fight it, they have to buy it!
