Via Flickr mail I asked somebody who seems to be on the Ipernity payroll:
Thanks for leaving a comment in my photostream.
I was wondering if you could answer my question regarding Ipernity’s funding.
Who are the investors?
Is it independent? Is it funded by venture capital? Or does it belong to another company?

Here’s the answer I received via Flickr mail:
ipernity is french company totally independent and self-funded.
Well. I still think it looks a bit like Sixapart’s Vox.
