You've got to see this...Chris Barton's remarkable compilation of some of the uses of a particular image. For when you just have to say "perfect-people perfect-world lowest-common-denominator cookie-cutter pile-them-high sell-them-cheap."
Just scroll down and look at the pictures. Worth several thousand words! The "Business Image" one is especially hilarious, I thought.

Featured Comment by Spyro: "How much did the photographer make from that photo? Something like six bucks, two marbles and some pocket lint?"
Featured Comment by Don [in reply to Spyro]: "Well, since the photographer is exclusive to istock, and that image has had 6700 downloads, she's made something like $25,000 from that one picture alone. In trying to lambast microstock Chris Barton actually makes a good case for photographers doing it. Lise Gagné could have placed that image with Photographers Direct, and after a few years she'd have earned 80% of, well, probably nothing. Besides, doesn't everyone know that crass advertising actually works?"
