  1. BBC News, 19th March 2019 Sainsbury's and Asda vow £1bn merger price cuts AXT23W by Charles Robertson (cropped)
  2. EDIT: Just tried MS Edge which - instead of just a generic (useless) unable to connect dialog [sic] threw up a page informing me that it was down to my Vodafone broadband settings! I imagine that this is because I have blocked certain types of (highly offensive) content and that the Wayback Machine will, of course, log details of many types of content, therefore they have blocked the site. Apologies for being such an idiot. Now trying to login to MyVodafone, but I have to get a text containing a security code sent to my phone in a mobile blackspot (my home - in the middle of a large urban area). When it eventually gets here, the security page will likely timeout! AAAARGHHH: tearing my hair out! Modern Life is Rubbish!
  3. Don't get it. This is the only website that I am constantly unable to connect to: Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at web.archive.org. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web. Just when I need it, too!
  4. Email sent to publication concerned. A Google search reveals that this is not the first time they have done this.
  5. A follow-up: Alamy have said that they are happy to pursue this should I wish, but from my initial email it was assumed that I wished to chase it up myself - which i shall be doing. I will be editing my posts until I have completed my claim.
  6. Actually, I think you may both be right here. However, I'm pretty sure that Alamy have said before that they are unwilling to chase similar infringements. I shall contact them again to confirm that they are unwilling to chase before I do.
  7. https://www.alamy.com/registration/unauthorised-use-form.aspx says: " We can’t chase unauthorised uses on your behalf if your image… Has been reproduced on another website as a direct copy of an original article which has a license. " which would appear to cover it. Alamy said: "Hi Danny, We’ve just had a look and it looks like we don’t have any downloads or licenses covering this use. You’re free to chase this yourself. Thanks, Ellie"
  8. Umm, I'm confused now: they didn't license it - why would they chase it? They are not going to follow up on folk who rip off a licence that's been sold by them, otherwise that's all they'd be doing!
  9. CR have told me that there is no download for this usage and that I am free to chase. The image has been licensed by Alamy several times before. Unless I've made some huge error somewhere (and I don't think so), then the only way I can see that they got it was via one of the other Alamy licences online (which are totally unrelated).
  10. It's has only ever been available for license via Alamy. My other outlets don't have this particular image. I have an (initial, polite enquiry) email ready to go, but it does appear that they have lifted it. Maybe an individual using it in error, but I don't see how this could be the case?
  11. EDITED TEXT: Just been in touch with CR, who have assured me that they haven't licensed my image (below) to an editorial publication for online usage (possibility in print also). <IMAGE SNIP> I see that it has also been used by a county council on (at least) their Twitter feed. Have any contributors had direct dealings with these companies/organisations? Just trying to gauge invoice price level. Alamy's guide appears to be £29.99 - fine, if they had bothered to actually license it. Any suggestions for an additional % for, well, let's not beat around the bush - blatant theft? TIA
