  1. New portfolio area

    The introduction of the contributor portfolio area is very welcome. However, I have a niggle. The Gallery button does not have enough space for a meaningful gallery name. Would it be possible to expand the text box which holds the name? Thanks. Iain Lowson

  3. Unauthorised image use

    I'm currently pursuing a British company for unauthorised use of one of my images on its website. In their defence they state the following: I do apologise for this, the image was downloaded from Google, who as you may know, have recently had a Law passed that has reassigned the status of Copyright on all of the images on all of its servers. The fact that Copyright been now disbanded, and as such all Copyright claims for images displayed, uploaded to and downloaded from any Google server are now invalid. While the Google defence is laughable, I'm curious about the source of this misconception. Has anybody got any background information on this? Iain Lowson
  4. Unreported sale- "checking with billing dept"

    I've had a similar experience since last year. On 29 December 2012, I emailed MS to ask whether an image of mine had been licensed through Alamy. The image is on sale only on Alamy. On 8 January 2013, MS replied that the website with my image on it was "due to be billed soon". On 14 March I asked for an update on progress and the response on the same day was that MS would "check with the billing team". Having received no further response from MS on this, I emailed on 25 April to ask again about progress. So far no response, eight days later. To be fair to MS, this is the first time for me that they have not resolved billing issues promptly. If mine is not an isolated case, maybe Alamy can offer an explanation. Iain Lowson
