  1. Yep...that's fair enough. I've since gone straight to the Wenn site and used their "contact us" feature to ask the question. I'm really only doing this on principle. The images aren't that great and i could care less about any royalties IF they even sold any of them. People have asked before if they can use my images and I've allowed it for free, so it annoys me that someone else has claimed they are the photographer and charging for it.
  2. Alamy just responded again and one of the key statements is below. I have uploaded to some aquarium websites, so I suspect what they are doing is "ok" 4. You believe someone else is selling your images or images you own the rights to through Alamy. Alamy works with over 700 picture agencies, who by submitting to our platform have indicated they have permission to licence images on their contributor’s behalf. If someone else is submitting images you have taken, please check any agreement you may have with other agencies first. If you haven’t given them permission to do so, let us know and we’ll investigate and get back to you. If you or the organisation behind the images has released them into the public domain, which communicates that the images are free from known restrictions under copyright law and can be freely used by others, we will not be taking any further action.
  3. Yeah. I just checked their site and searched for "Fish Tank" . (it was my fish tank image that was used). They have over 27k results under fish tank I don't know if a site has licensed the photos to them or they have just stolen them....I fear that they may actually have some kind of legal right as somewhere I've uploaded them to has allowed it. Alamy did respond today so we will see what happens
  4. Do moderators review these threads. I emailed info@alamy.com a few days back and have not had a response at all yet.
  5. Unfortunately, these images were shared about 16 years ago when I built the tank. I shared it on at least one site I remember, but there may have been others. I noticed they have been used on many other sites since then (also without my express permission). I am not concerned about it being shared, but I was surprised to find that Wenn has claimed ownership and is charging for use.
  6. Yes, I noticed that too. It’s almost like they are just scanning sites for images and taking ownership of them. All the images at the bottom of the link are mine.
  7. Hi There. Not sure where to post this so I’ll start here. Can’t find anything else on this site advising on how to handle this. I found some of my images on this site or sale under the photographer WENN. I was never approached about this or given any approval. I had posted the images up on some Aquarium websites. I’m curious to know what the rules are around this and how does someone (or some company) obtain rights to sell a photo that isn’t theirs. Can anyone point me in the right direction ? Here is the link to one of the photos in question. I can easily prove this is my image https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-tv-tank-the-perfect-solution-for-those-fed-up-with-being-polluted-34164612.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=D99AEBAF-2605-4E96-9986-D5063E330B5A&p=215289&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d2%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3dTv%2520fish%2520tank%26qt_raw%3dTv%2520fish%2520tank%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d1%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26groupid%3d%26pseudoid%3d%7b0D5221C1-497A-4FAB-8FB3-C704AC26A294%7d%26a%3d%26cdid%3d%26cdsrt%3d%26name%3d%26qn%3d%26apalib%3d%26apalic%3d%26lightbox%3d%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26xstx%3d0%26simid%3d%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d1%26nu%3d%26t%3d%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3dAU%26cap%3d1%26cbstore%3d1%26vd%3d0%26lb%3d%26fi%3d2%26edrf%3d0%26ispremium%3d1%26flip%3d0%26pl%3d
