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 unauthorised use" I've learned that Alamy: quote: "can’t chase unauthorised uses on your behalf if your image… Has been used in a personal (non commercial) blog or on an individual’s social media platform." In my case I posted some photos on Facebook and ouch!, seems like will have to row against the wind and waves on my own without Alamy's help.. Briefly: I was asked for the permission but refused for my photographs to be used on "this" calendar. Two of my photographs wore printed on calendar without my permission. Unlike others my name was not included anywhere on the calendar. Calendar price was £7.50 [receipt]. UK based. Feel so insulted by this having nightmares. Where do I go from here and where to start from?
Hi All brand new here - basically joined as an outlet for my non-commissioned work most of which normally gets posted to social media then I forget about it until someone wants to use it for something - thought I would join here and then I can just point them (usually local paper) to Alamy to buy the images they want and save me the hassle of dealing with them - though I know this means I'll earn less from them maybe some other people might want some too to offset them etc and it will hopefully just be less hassle. Anyway my question is this - should I be ticking Exclusive to Alamy? My images are so far as sales are concerned but I wasn't sure if this precludes me posting them to social media? Or would it only preclude that if I were trying to sell them via social media rather than just showing them?
