"...in the 2003 film "Matrix Reloaded", a wall of monitors displays several horrific historical footage, from the WTC towers burning, to dead bodies at Auschwitz, to Ku Klux Klan members marching. All that footage, all 59 clips according to the report, were licensed by Gates' Corbis Motion."
"If you thought that Bill Gates' Corbis and Mark Getty's Getty Images were peacefully co-existing, think again."
Two real naughty articles: "Laughing Kids from Hell called Getty and Corbis?" (The Inquirer) and "Stock footage: Look no further than the newly organized, digitized and revitalized stock footage industry" (Hollywood Reporter).
