  1. Thought this was interesting about the expiration of copyright. https://web.law.duke.edu/cspd/publicdomainday/2019/
  2. Copyright is obviously a bit of a minefield but I have a question ! I bought a print, initially to copy and put on the wall of my old farmhouse in Hungary, which I will still do, but the quality is so good and so detailed that it would be fine for Alamy via the archival route. It is an original print that has a postcard type layout printed on the back. It was taken by a Hungarian photographer in the 1930s who has been deceased for more than 70 years. A small signature is on the print and obviously I would attribute his name in the title and tags. There are also other images by this photog
  3. I am wondering if anyone has ever taken a stock photo of public displayed artwork piece (to be used for educational purposes only), then had someone request that the image be removed? How did you respond? Thanks ...
  4. Hello everyone, I am an amateur photographer and shooting only cause I love recording memories. Photography is an obsession to me. I post my photographs on Alamy, Youtube and social media. The day has come when I realised that posting photographs on Facebook for advertisement reason is bad idea and the only question I have now is how bad? Thought being part of any photographic organisation or other legal photographic body as Alamy is enough to be protected from copyright infringements and today I learned I was wrong.. While reading "Report an unauthoris
  5. Having recently become an Alamy contributor I was pleased to learn that I can retain my own website. However, I asked Alamy whether they could give me some wording for the Permissions Page to alert potential image stealers that they were "registered" with Alamy and to direct them to Alamy should they wish to make a purchase. Alamy could not help and suggested I ask other contributors via the forum to find out what they do. My website host flatly refuses to disable right click actions and I can;t understand why. The only actions associated with right click on an image is to allow people to
  6. I have some images uploaded, but not yet keyworded, from this outdoor installation in Boston: https://www.rosekennedygreenway.org/public-art/currently-greenway/glow/ I am hesitating putting them on sale because I'm not sure if these are considered works of art that should only be submitted in wider context. One other photographer has images of these signs available on alamy. He has them marked royalty free, and NOT as property--but I wonder about that since the exhibition states they are on loan from the people who own them. That sounds like property to me.
  7. How does it work copyright-wise with images of printed matter such as posters, flyers, etc. (no context, just the thing itself)? I've noticed several posts about sales of such images.
  8. I've found another image in usage in article without my (and other authors) name under the work. Bryan was so kind to answer: A requirement that is more honoured in the breach unfortunately. In my experience the Mail Online never provides the name of the photographer, don't think that the Telegraph does either, but they do normally cite the name of the agency. The Guardian and Times are a tad more punctilious. Here on Alamy terms (http://www.alamy.com/terms/uk.asp#General) we can read: 4. Credit and Copyright issues 4.2. Unless otherwise agreed in writing
  9. A photographer from the US in Trafalgar Square yesterday complained to me that I'd infringed his copyright by apparently taking the same picture as him. From a distance away I saw an interesting situation and walked over quickly, took a very quick frame only half-aware of a person alongside until he spoke to me. According to him, by standing in the same place and making the same picture with the same lens and perspective (and so replicating the scene) I was copying his picture which would, in effect, stand up in a US court. I said that I'd never heard of such a thing an
  10. Hi, If a news website shows a screenshot of my twitter post with n image on it, and they did not get a permission to use it, can I chase them for this? They did ask for permission but I directed them to Alamy News, they acknowledged my reply, and therefore I think they are using the twitter screenshot until they obtain the image from Alamy. Just in case I screenshoted (is this even a word?) they article to be able to chase them in case they dont end up purchasing from alamy. Is my approach correct?
  11. Hello, I'm looking for recommendations for a copyright infringement/claims site. Somewhere you upload your images to then they search the internet looking for your images, once they find a match you can then decided if your images are being used improperly and if so send the offending web site a take down demand letter or begin legal action. They keep %50 of the settlement for the legal work. I was using Pixsy.com but but have found them lacking. Thanks in advance, David L. Moore
  12. I see stock photo's that have been accepted where there's lots of random people in the photo's. I know that each person needs a written permission to use their photo's, so are these photographers asking each person on the street if they have permission to use their photo's? That would be crazy ridiculous. I moved to the Philippines a year ago, and often I'm left not taking photo's that I otherwise would because of all the people in them. There are people everywhere here, so getting photo's without people in the shot is very difficult often. Also, it would be nice to tak
  13. Hi - I'm about to do a garden shoot at a private property, the photography being commissioned by the garden designer. I've just been contacted by the owners' representative asking that I sign away my rights jointly to themselves and the designer - the phrase used is "Usage – All rights/Intellectual Property in perpetuity to be assigned to . . . Usually we expect to pay a small fee of course" What are your thoughts on this - and what might be an appropriate fee? I'm thinking at least my day rate for this kind of job, but maybe it should be more? Advice from the hive mind welcome
  14. Hi, I hope someone can help me here, i have taken thousands of photographs over the last 40 years and am just very slowly starting to put them on Alamy. I really want to share my images with the world, started my love of photography seeing an image appear on paper in the developer tray many decades ago! ie 35mm printing my own b&w images. It would be nice to earn money from this but it isn't my number 1 goal in life re my art. I have always been careful never to take pictures of someone or someones property, if they didn't want me to, asking if it is ok at the time for instance, but
  15. Thought I would share this very useful summary of copyright developments over time from DACS : https://www.dacs.org.uk/latest-news/copyright-uncovered-photographs?category=For+Artists&title=N&utm_source=DACS+General+Mailing+List&utm_campaign=f7a41f8e79-DACS_newsletter_Q1_2018&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_de159500fe-f7a41f8e79-223246869&mc_cid=f7a41f8e79&mc_eid=abf8554838 https://www.dacs.org.uk/knowledge-base/factsheets/copyright-in-photographs Marc
  16. I found this website while searching for my own images. They are just grabbing images from Alamy and many other stock libraries and using them free of charge, watermarks intact. I sent an email last night to CS about the entire website as there are so many infringements to deal with. Here is a google search I just did which will give you an idea. I only searched for alamy images but if you have images on other sites it seems to matter that Traveltempters be all one word in your search. https://www.google.com/search?q=traveltempters+alamy&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=fir
  17. When the submission form asks me if there is property, I've been filling in "no" for public buildings, and "no" for sculptures. But it seems that Australian law makes exceptions when things are photographed for commercial use. Should I fill in "yes" for all buildings-as-property questions without checking the law? Everything not human is property, so that means that if I photograph an expanse of fields, I should contact every farmer who has a field with a corner in the photograph. Apparently even graffiti requires a release! Here is some of the Australian law The recent settle
  18. Hello, we're a commercial photographer company in the UK and have worked with clients for many years on their commissions, events etc. I'd like to know whether the pictures we have taken on behalf of the clients can be added to our Alamy library? As is normally the case, the client pays us for the time and delivery of the the images - but can we then sell them for stock? Is there a period of time that must elapse before we do? We don't issue contracts for each job so assume that the default arrangement is that the photographer owns the copyright of the images. Any guidance would be most apprec
  19. Not sure if this has already been put up and also not sure if the info is correct. However, it's food for thought. John https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M16CGK1T9MM
  20. Hi, whats the rules in regards to Royal Mail post boxes. I've got a few good old V R embossed post boxes. But I'm unsure if these kind of images would need a property release or are they classed as public domain etc.. I presume its probably editorial use only, But I can't find anything of any sense searching so thought I'd ask. thanks in advance.
  21. I just read the post on "How many more Customers Get This Treatment", and I've been in that boat as well. I have a different issue now, which I'm hoping someone can give me some insight on. Over the past week I've sent mails to ms@, sales@, and two or three direct email addresses, none of which have responded. Not even an automated message to confirm that my mail was received. Here's my situation. I did a reverse search a month or so ago. I found two of my images used on a website (+ affiliate websites, a total of 8 or 9 in different countries) that sells prints and canvases. The images we
  22. Hi, I want to submit some photos I have tacken at a football match in the UK. The game was at the Fulham Fc FA cup game against Tottenham. My pictures include a close up shot of the Emirates FA Cup sign, the Fulham FC sign on one of there stands, and wide shots of the pitch with players either during the pre-match warm up or playing (not a close up shot). I am wondering if anyone knows what the rule/copyright laws would be for these type of photos? Any commercial lawyers out there? Thank you.
  23. I guess most stock photographers will have come up against the issue of restricted commercial use of images due to not having property releases...Well in this instance i had taken shots of the Shrine of Remembrance War Memorial in Melbourne Australia..The images were taken of the shrine buildings and monuments from the grounds of the shrine,these images have been on Alamy for quite a few years.. Well my images were deleted yesterday along with many other contributor images of the shrine,after a representative of the trustees of the shrine pointed out to Alamy that we did not have permissio
  24. Have people seen the survey the US Library of Congress is conducting as part of community consultation on the next Register of Copyrights? The Copyright Alliance appears to have some serious concerns about whether the new Register will be on the side of creators. Thus, they are encouraging creators such as photographers to take part in the (very quick) survey, and have provided a model response. This looks pretty important - and deadline is 31st, i.e. today (presumably east coast US time). Full explanation and links here: http://copyrightalliance.org/get-involved/register-copyrights-s
  25. A 34m high 'puppet' has been passing through Cornwall over last 2 weeks. Yesterday it was in Penzance and one of my photos has been requested for a CD cover. The picture is essentially just a head-and-shoulders of it. I will be giving my picture freely to the Royal Geographic Society of Cornwall as a cover image for their CD. Will it's use be a breach of copyright?
