  1. This is my understanding so far after having read more on the subject. I think it's quite accurate, but take it as my opinion only, of course no legal value. 1) Generally not possible to mix published and unpublished 2) Not recommandable, better to first publish all the photos 3) Are one time per collection, but not one time per group. SO if it was a group registration (not a collection) then more statuatory damages can be obtained 4) REferring to grouup registration (not collection) It is possible to register photos taken in different years as published, by pubishing them on the same year
  2. That's exactely what I want to do, but in my case not because I "need" to do it, but because I "want" to do it, in order to pay just one group registration fee for thousands of photos (there is no limit if the continuation form is not used). Could you confirm that I could technically register my photos as published already the day after I upload the publicly online? I also opened a specific topic here http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/5631-us-copyrights-registering-images-as-published-the-folowing-day/#entry93925 Thank you
  3. According to the official compendium 3rd revision, 1116.6(A)(4) http://www.copyright.gov/comp3/docs/compendium.pdf Interpreting this passage, since it states the possibility of registering published images before 3 months passed (in this case it is actually given as a condition), I suppose the answer to my question is yes, I can register my photos as published already the day after I upload them online. Since I'm not mother tongue, if anybody has a different interpretation, please let me know.
  4. DO you have a contact of the COpyright hotline? It would be helpful to call them. Is it maybe this? (202) 287-8700 http://www.copyright.gov/history/mls/ML-255.pdf For the 750 images limit, as far as I know it's only if you use the "continuation form", but not if you attach a name list. Here an official position on that. It's from 2005, so I don't know if it might have changed in the meanwhile http://www.copyright.gov/fedreg/2005/70fr15587.html If you upload them online with a file including each name and published date in the same calendar year, then it should be no limit to
  5. From where you have this information? I've read a lot in the last months, and I've never found any limit for the first registration. Could you link to the source so that I can have a look? Thank you
  6. I'm not speaking specifically in this case about images that were licensed. I'm referring to any image considered as published, pretty much anything that becomes publicly available online without a password: photos published on blogs, social networks, etc. While I know that the best practice is to register the photos max every 3 months, this doesn't work for somebody that has never done registration before, since I first need to regularize all my past work spending as little as possible.
  7. Hello, some weeks ago I opened a topic about Copyright registration in the US with several questions, but now I would like to focus in particular in one of them, since that's what is still keeping me from starting the work. I can register images as unpublished within three months of publication. But what if I want to register them as published within those three months, is it possible? In example, today I upload them online to make them published, and tomorrow I do the registration, can I register them as published, or should I wait for 3 months to pass? I would like to use this trick to
  8. The limit as far as I got, is only for published images and only if you use the "Continuation form", used to add details of each photos, as in example published date. But If you attach a file with the filenames and published dates, then you don't need the continuation form, and you can register unlimeted published images from the same year-author. That's what I got, but was asking for confirmation to more knowledable people.
  9. Yes, that's what I mean, registration with the US Library of Congress, accessible online from here http://www.copyright.gov/eco/ I'm aware it relates only to infringements in the US and I already select cases according to their commercial infolvement: no profit, blogs and "un-sue-able" countries, I just ask for a credit and a link; Small businesses, the equivalent of a standard license for web usage; Bigger businesses according to the usage they do and the country where they used it (In example in Sweden and Usa I asked more than in Italy or in Brazil or Poland) Yes I'm. aware o
  10. I've originally posted the message here http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/5303-spam-words-in-the-forum-bug but as suggested I paste it also here, in order to give visibility to the matter
  11. That's weird. I don't knwo if it's because I'm a new user of the forum, and I might have extra restrictions.
  12. Hello, I've read your suggestions and found them useful. I opened a new topic about copyright registration. Maybe any of you is able to answer some of my questions? http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/5290-registering-us-copyrights-with-a-low-cost-budget-group-registration-published-unpublished-year-one-time/ Thank you, Davide
  13. Hello, I'm new in the forum, and I struggled quite a lot with automatic spam words in the forum. I was receiving error selating to Spam Word XXX, where XXX was a numer, the last 3 numbers of the current year 20 16. I can't write it togheter otherwise it's considered spam. Same for another number, now I don't remember which one. The problem is that being a new user I was trying to understand what could be the spam word I was using. First I tried to count the words. In example SPam word 017, and I was looking for the 17th word and trying to delete it. But it didn't work. Then I
  14. Hello, I've been reading quite a lot of websites, FAQs, blog posts and whatever on the subject lately, but I still have some doubts. I've never registered my photos before, I'm Italian, and I never thought I might have an advantage on doing it. I run a travel websites (NomadTravellers.com) where 99% of the photos are mine, and get copied to hundreds of websites around the world (Mostly Asia and East Europe). Not many to US, but some yes. Last year I managed to get paid some money by 4-5 infringers, one of them from Usa, by simply writing some emails and putting some effort. So I though it wo
