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
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 further". Even pointing out a link on the page to click on to 'Send an Enquiry' or 'Email Us' is no good as they "won't be able to pursue this case any further". Anyone had any luck yet?
