  1. Exactly my point. Lapixa regularly return me anything between £300-1000 on individual infringements. Properly pursued by lawyers with correct allowances for flagrancy and lack of attribution. Can't see Alamy getting even close to that.
  2. Interested to see how this is going to work out. I currently use Lapixa who take a performance commission amounting to 43% of the received proceeds from asserting the rights (principal claim) vis-à-vis the infringers. Will Alamy pursue "proper" infringement compensation on our behalf or are they just seeking to sell the infringer a retrospective licence ? No indication of this in the email I received yesterday.

  4. Richard, the reply I received was indeed somewhat graceless but I did manage to find a solution after several searches. I must agree with you though - not helpful !
  5. As I don't have the time or inclination to go through over 3000 images and mark them all "exclusive" in order to claw back that last 10%., is there a quick way to bulk mark an entire collection ?
  6. Have just found my first "infringement" payment on my statement - $33 - which is frankly absurd. For a few hours of my PA's time we could have netted at least £500 for that one. I shall be chasing myself in future !
  7. Exactly what I'm so annoyed about. I could have chased these myself and got a result by now !
  8. In December 2015 and January this year, I was contacted by the Alamy Infringement Team regarding several issues of possible infringements To date, I have heard nothing more, and on 15th July they contacted me again offering to chase another infringement, asking if I would like them to chase it for me. If I had pursued the earlier infringements myself I could be many thousands of pounds better off by now, but Alamy have done absolutely nothing for me. Has anyone else got any comments on this ?
  9. Has anyone else with pictures of Esso forecourts, tankers or buildings been contacted by their legal department ? I have just received a threatening letter from them telling me that my (76) images on Alamy are infringing their trademark. The images I believe they are referring to are shots of forecourts and service stations taken from public property and naturally their logo is displayed on the forecourt canopies.
