In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Getty's going after Google, Scandy Spheres, duplicating projects in Lightroom and drone insurance.

  • In Google Accused of Enabling Photography Piracy, Olivier Laurent reports Getty images has accused Google "of scraping images from third-party Web sites and encouraging piracy." The company has filed a complaint about Google's "full-screen slideshows of high-resolution copyrighted images" with the European Union's antitrust commission.
  • John Nack found a way to print "all the Ricoh Theta shots I captured in Nepal" as a Scandy Sphere. Here's a 3D printed 360-degree panorama of the Blue Loggia room at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin home:
  • Julieanne Kost offers a simple tip to duplicate books, slideshows, prints and Web galleries in Lightroom so you can reuse them as templates for your next project.
  • Zanette Aviation has begun offering drone insurance for both Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Zanette owner Chris Zanette explained, "Drone issues are so important that we are launching a microsite specific to the segment and populating it with unique content on drones, UAS and UAV insurance issues. Plus the technology is just plain fun and exciting." Crash.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
