You are right. I have been through all these sources. The problem is like DCMA notices have a long processing queue whereever they are processed. 2nd thing the concern here is about what the models should know when they are getting clicked and what we should know about the images that we put for sale.
I agree that using models on microstock has some risks. I have stopped doing shots of my kids with prominent faces once they reach a certain age (five?) unless it is hard to imagine the shot going wrong, as you say.
@Thefinalmiracle - Perhaps we can't or shouldn't. I ask only because just today I came across a site that is using a lot of DT images for promotion of an LGBT support group. Many of the images used had strong concepts as you suggest (such as an elderly man at the dentist), but they have been cropped to remove the concept (just the headshot of the elderly man is shown with a quote below about the helpfulness of the group -- implying the man is the one giving the quote).
I use my daughters as models but haven't recently since I found one image being used for a rape survival page. Yikes! My parents would have a heart attack if they ever saw that! Bottom line is, we can't know what the images are being purchased for (when purchased) or how they will be used if they are just generic images. Or even images of certain concepts can be substituted for others. You should be prepared to be unpleasantly surprised at LEAST once in your stock career. :)
@calyx22 - Yes every business possesses risks but RF stock is like a total risk into shaming ourselves our the models at sometime. The least we can do is keep hunting for our used images and check for problems, then report them if they are damaging.
