Stock Artists Alliance

Stock Artists Alliance

Founded in 2001, the Stock Artists Alliance is an international trade association of photographers who produce images for stock photography. The mission of SAA is to support and protect the business interests of professional stock photographers with regard to the worldwide distribution of their intellectual property.

As an advocate for its members, SAA encourages the use of fair contracts and ethical behavior at all levels of the industry. SAA monitors the stock photography industry and serves as an ombudsman for its members' interests in dealing with agencies and other distribution channels.

SAA's first major negotiation was with Getty Images to improve the photographers' contract.

In 2008, SAA joined over 60 other art licensing businesses (including the Artists Rights Society, the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Illustrator's Partnership of America and the Advertising Photographers of America, among others) in opposing both [http://capwiz.com/illustratorspartnership/issues/bills/?billid=11320236 The Orphan Works Act of 2008] and [http://capwiz.com/illustratorspartnership/issues/bills/?billid=11322171 The Shawn Bentley Orphan Works Act of 2008] . [http://www.illustratorspartnership.org/01_topics/article.php?searchterm=00273 Orphan Works Legislative Action Center: Groups Opposed to the Orphan Works Act] ] Known collectively as " [http://www.illustratorspartnership.org/01_topics/article.php?searchterm=00273 Artists United Against the U.S. Orphan Works Acts] ," the diverse organizations joined forces to oppose the bills, which the groups believe "permits, and even encourages, wide-scale infringements while depriving creators of protections currently available under the Copyright Act."
