  5. I liked this one at a women's safety demo in Manchester, uk
  6. I read that some buildings in the USA, like the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and Rockefeller Center are registered trademarks which is different from copyright. There seem to be plenty of stock photos of the Empire State Building available. Selling mats, mugs and postcards of an image of it might be a step too far? As for uk buildings this is informative: https://filmlondon.org.uk/resource/filming-buildings
  7. This week I found an unreported use from last June by a google search of my name and a well known newspaper title. Alamy quickly replied they could see a relevant download and they would add it to the billing. It's worth a bit of googling now and then to see what we can find.
  8. If QC has approved them I think there is no difference between ftp and web upload. Re mistakes either the batch is approved or it isn't. Alamy will have sent you an email either way. And you can see the status of the batch on the left in Image Manager. Does the batch say 'passed'. For the last 13 images: -I doubt what you say about model release is the problem -have you given them all a caption? -have you given each image at least 5 tags? -clicking the star on some tags to make them a supertag is a good idea but I don't think it's essential to get them on sale -o
  9. One sale only this month, though price decent, of a photo I took in 1983. Must work harder so 2021 pics get some buyers.
  10. I think it depends when they were taken. To quote Dacs.org.uk: "Photographs taken before 1 January 1945 - The term of protection depends on whether the work enjoyed copyright protection within another European member state on 1 July 1995. " Also, according to the Copyrightaid website, many museums and the like make a new digital image of a photo and assert their copyright of that. Asserting that does not necessarily mean the original work is still in copyright.
  11. For books, plays and other art works I think you are right. But for photos, the 1911 Act says: Provisions as to photographs The term for which copyright shall subsist in photographs shall be fifty years from the making of the original negative from which the photograph was directly or indirectly derived, and the person who was owner of such negative at the time when such negative was made shall be deemed to be the author of the work, and, where such owner is a body corporate, the body corporate shall be deemed for the purposes of this Act to reside within the parts of His Majesty's do
  12. I go by the advice in the copyrightaid site that "generally speaking any photograph taken and published in the UK before 1945 will now be out of copyright. Anything taken before 1945 and published before 1993 will be free of both copyright and publication right". They advise considering section 21 of the Copyright Act 1911, the 1956 Copyright Act, and that "in 1995 the UK was obliged to introduce changes to conform with European law. This increased the post mortem element to 70 years and it also had retrospective effect on any photograph which was still in copyright on 1 July 1995. In other w
  13. I think it's plenty good enough. I'm still using a Nikon D3100 which is fine.
  14. Do we think, or does Alamy think, that street/wall graffiti is an artwork?
  15. We caption with the facts as they are today. eg. "XXX pictured on 15th February, 2021, was found guilty of shoplifting today 16th March." If the Appeal court quashes the conviction next year we don't go back and change the old caption. It's truth doesn't change. It's up to the buyer of an image next year to check the facts of guilt or otherwise as they are then.
