Honestly, this wasn't actually meant to be a 'pile on iStock' day, but when you have a target-rich environment, you have to make the most of it.
Last week we reported (8/24 - Getty Site - Site Down as Stock Is Down?) on the new Getty Images site as being down. Well, what happened here?

I guess it's a good thing that today isn't 100% royalty day!
