Lobster Make social content available. Legally. Jan 2014. Member of Wayra UK 2014
Problem Buyer side 1. User content on Instagram, Flickr, Twitter and others that covers valuable events and lifestyles worldwide is not readily available for legal use in the media 2. Traditional photo stocks offer a limited range of standardized, typical content at high rates and narrow license terms 3. Third party apps for ‘news contributors’ are not wide spread enough as they require users to use ‘yet another app’ Seller side 1. User content on Instagram, Flickr, etc gets stolen or copied illegally. We believe this is due to a lack of civilized acquisition mechanism. 2. Amateur users can’t earn on their content as professional photographers in photostocks do, despite often good quality and unmatchable range of content. Or at least easily grant the rights to use their content to others. 3. Popular social networks do not provide enough challenge /reward, interactivity and augmented reality feeling to the users.
