  1. Some lovely images Gayle, you may want to be descriptive within your captions. For example: Its caption is "Fixer upper" Maybe changing to "Frontal view of a rusty Ford pickup truck" as I believe Alamy also take into account the caption when searches are perfromed.
  2. Their commercial enough, certainly worth attempting. Contact Alamy to see if they were issued with a license, if not you can either ask Alamy to pursue the license fee or open an account with Pixsy and let them do the work.
  3. If they removed the image from instagram and placed it on their server and no license issued by Alamy then a clear infringement, worth pursuing if it's a commercial website.
  4. In the UK it's doubtful they could use it, currently the likes of Yahoo & MSN will create news stories using Social Media images claiming it was used in "Fair Use" hence why i was able to claim. If it's taken to court in America then their infringement fine is $10,000 per image so most will settle quickily 😃
  5. Infringment only works if they have removed the image from the original source, a lot do, thinking that we are too stupid not to realise LOL Another one they try to claim is "Fair Use" as it's a news story.
  6. I use Pixsy for my mage checks and have just recieved a settlement from them for an infrigement by a major US media outlet who thought it was OK to use my images from Twitter! Can be slow in the mitigation process but very quick at spotting infringements
  7. Snap , although i also use Pixsy to keep track. Very worthwhile, had 2 images used by Yahoo News which were taken from my Twitter , still waiting for the £££ to land for those as they were clear infringments. So far have 14 matches online, just a shame when a sale lands we're not informed by whom so we can match keep track.
  8. Ahh one I didnt pick up!! Thanks Lovely full page in the Daily Mail - lets hope the $$ is just as nice Thanks again!
  9. SShep - Sadly cant get LES down here, did they print any of the lightning shots from last 24hrs - I know they've run online but just wondering - Cheers
  10. Have you contacted Jessica to see if there is a reason. I was tempted to go to SW** but heard mixed things
  11. I had a small sale appear this month and queried it with Alamy and Jessica was kind enough to provide a link to the article it was used in. Certanily helped when Pixsy flagged it up the follwoing week.
