  1. As Spacecadet said I reuploaded some of my vectors as illustration with RM. My earlier material was not as ok as what I do now thats also why I deleted it. Look at the two black/white/red Darth Vader, thats my old style and I prefer the new one. The lawyer I found is specialised in intellectual property and he said to me (to sum up) that what I do is quite risky. Now I m talking with Disney (which owns Lucasfilm) to reach an agreement. I know there is almost no chance I reach one but I try
  2. Nope you re wrong, I got what you said days ago and I took account of it. But I prefer to ask many different people and be totally sure instead of taking a decision too fast, thats all.
  3. It's precisely because we're not lawyers that we're suggesting caution in using unlicensed IP. OP, there's no point in repetition. Sadly, and I hate to say it seeing all the work that has gone into your paintings, the safest outcome for you is probably if no-one licenses your images for a high-profile use. It's pretty unlikely anyway, because the publisher will be aware of the IP question even if you are not. Best start on some original material. I'm asking a lawyer. I will post his answer as soon as I get it.
  4. I just got a reply from Alamy: "Hello Edouard, As you’ve uploaded your images as RM, you need not worry. You just have to accurately annotate these images.RM images are also fine for a commercial customer to use (dependant on their end use), and gives us an opportunity to flag the lack of release to the customer for them to decide if they’ll need one. If the end user is not adhering to the limitations of RM, then it is a case to worry. However, from our side, we ensure we sell proper licenses for every image use."
  5. Not at all. Alamy is protected by the user agreement. What it tells you about licence type and releases isn't legally watertight permission to submit images containing IP you don't own. You don't own the copyright in the Star Wars or Batman images and you don't have permission from those who do. You therefore run a risk, at best of Alamy being asked to remove them, which it will, and at worst of legal action. Or as Martin says Alamy will take them down proactively to protect itself. I ask that because everybody here says me there is a risk while Alamy says me its safe as they have a
  6. Thanks I created some images before that I uploaded in Alamy, but in 3 years the only thing I sold was the Batman logo and the Darth Vader face...That s why I deleted them and uploaded some new images with famous IP in I agree with you but there are so many people selling images with IP in Alamy that I thought it was legaly covered
  7. I ask Alamy again to look at this thread and give me a clear answer about that. I suppose its now a bit late and they will send me a mail tomorrow morning. BTW I m a english beginner, so please be cool. I m not stupid or stubborn, I m just here to ask some questions and be sure what I do is ok. BTW Spacecadet, copyright is a noun and also a verb https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/copyright

  12. I already sold many times the batman logo and Darth Vader illustrations with RM licence, so it means its possible. I actually just got a reply from Alamy member service: "However, we don’t expect all images to have releases, but we do expect all images to be accurately annotated. If an image contains people then it needs to say that. If you don’t have releases then you can still sell through Alamy as Rights Managed (RM). Images without releases may also be fine for a commercial customer to use (dependant on their end use), but RM gives us an opportunity to flag the lack of release to
  13. I actually dont know where property starts and ends. But I think I can sell those images as Rights Managed (RM), so as illustrations (vectors are only Royalty Free) ?? Look at this : http://www.alamy.com/contributor/how-to-sell-images/model-property-releases-stock-images/ Alamy says: "Don’t worry, if you don’t have a release, we can still sell your images as Rights Managed (RM)." I did it with the yellow and black Batman logo that I uploaded years ago. In the Image Manager they ask: "Does this image contain property that needs a release for commercial use" > I say Yes "Do
