  1. Hey all, I'm struggling to find a fast way of checking for usage of my photos online. Alamy has more or less disabled right clicking on your photos on its website and doing anything with them as far as I can tell. So if you use Google Images you can upload a photo to look for copies online. But all my JPEGs are too big. So I have to go into Paint and resize the JPEG, save as another file name etc. It just seems a hassle. Has anyone got a better way of doing this? Thanks, Stephen
  2. Last June we made a sale and the image usage was luckily reported in the 'Found' thread here. It was used on well known wine magazine's website. In January I found the same image on a Fine Wine website (presumably lifted from the other website) so I reported it to Alamy. As of yesterday Alamy had not heard back from the infringer so I emailed them myself asking them to reply to Alamy or give me a contact to invoice. A sale of this image to the infringer is on our account this morning......
  3. Hello, Until recently I have never tried to look for copyright infringement. I'm wondering if there is a way, software or website to reverse image search many images at once? Jonathan
  4. Hi folks An image of mine appeared in the online edition of the FT a couple of days back. (The link is here, but it's firewalled so may not work, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to insert a screenshot here! https://www.ft.com/content/ace1dbe0-7ece-11e8-8e67-1e1a0846c475 ) The image in question has been licensed quite a few times, but never for anything saying "newspaper". One license says "single company multiple use, editorial only" but doesn't say who the company was. So, with the vagueness of the license detail, how can I know whether this usage was legiti
  5. Has anybody had any successful dealings with the infringement notification form that was introduced last November? I have recently reported three examples of images stolen from the Alamy website, complete with watermark, being used on commercial websites. Unfortunately it seems that if you cannot find a valid email address for the person who has stolen your work, the team "won't be able to pursue this case any further". Providing a postal address for the business and a dozen phone numbers is of no use, as without a valid email address they "won't be able to pursue this case any
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I've found finding and dealing with copyright violations challenging. Part of the reason is that my images on Alamy often get used without proper credits to me or Alamy, post late, and the end customer is never named in an Alamy sale. I had a recent episode where I found a couple of images of mine used to illustrate an article for a big British news outlet. I found them with a reverse image search. As is often the case, there was no credit to me, any of my pseudonyms or Alamy. This particular article was dated about three years ago and I had to cross reference the images and find them on
  9. Hello, I hear many people find copyright infringment on the internet and wonder what you guys to find your infringements. THANKS, Jacob Y.
  10. I sold a photo through Alamy a few years ago that was used for the movie poster, some online downloadable wallpapers and it was also used for the DVD cover. The license included all those uses. Now however I find two images on Alamy of the movie posters where My image was used. Specifically in the poster they used Caesars Palace hotel and the Bellagio hotel fountains in Las Vegas in a photo collage. I am wondering if that could be considered infringement or should I just forget about it. One other consideration for anyone that is worried about not having property releases, in this case r

  12. Seems like there has to be a better way for Alamy and its contributors to find copyright infringements. Like many of you, I use Google's reverse image search to try and track down where my Alamy photos have been used. Though I often find plenty of results, they very rarely credit me, either by my name or my Alamy pseudonyms. Though Alamy is often the credit line, it is not at all uncommon to find that somebody else is- presumably another third party stock agency. And with each search, I seem to open a new can of worms that takes me hours to follow up. As examples, I go to my "zooms" for th
