Getty Images Sued Google over Antitrust Concerns

The photo agency has filed a complaint with the European Commission against the tech firm over its alleged abuse of the Getty Images’ search dominance. The company has repeatedly been accused of distorting search results in order to promote its own online services like Google Images, Shopping, Map, etc., affecting all of its competitors – from media companies like Getty Images to various travel websites and price comparison services.


The latest complaint from Getty Images followed its registration as an “interested third person” last summer and related to Google Image search, which displays images from the web in response to picture or word search terms. Getty’s complaint pointed at changes made to Google’s Image search three years ago, which allegedly created galleries of high-resolution copyrighted content, promoted digital piracy and resulted in widespread copyright violation.

The matter is that image consumption is immediate – in other words, once an image is displayed in high-resolution format, nobody will go to view the image on the original source website. Such changes have allowed the tech firm to reinforce its role as the world’s dominant search engine and maintain monopoly over website traffic, engagement data and advertising spend.

In response, Google had to refute the anticompetitive claims. This move became just another one in the growing unease over the dominant position of American technology companies within Europe. Share of Google search across Europe is about 90%, so it can hardly be surprising that Google is facing several antitrust investigations from the European Union.

On the other hand, Getty reminds that artists need to earn a living, but Google is trying to create an environment where it is able to claim the profits from individuals’ creations as its own. It should also be noted that Google is far not the first tech company under the spotlight – for example, Facebook is also facing a number of investigations and lawsuits over its privacy practices across the region. As for Google, the recent action by the competition chief of the European competition has thrown the company back under the spotlight.

Now Google is also accused of using a popular operating system Android in order to “protect and expand its dominant position in online search”.
