  1. I have just received the following communication from the Alamy legal team: Hi Michael, We’ve heard from one of our distributors as they have been contacted by lawyers on behalf of Beitar Jerusalem Football Club concerning an image of their registered trademark available in your collection. P24XCT / Football Flag They say the use of the club’s trademark and making available for licensing in this way is not authorized and have asked for the image to be withdrawn, which we have done while we investigate. If you believe you hold permiss
  2. Alamy dropped my balance for 57% (cutting down to charity without my knowledge). I did not get any email notice about time deadline regarding to their possible reduction of my account balance – using their contract article under 12.xx. My balance was 212 USD, before cutting it to 89USD . Am I am case for getting or giving charity. I want Alamy to refund it or use donating something like 10% not 57% cutting down by free will. Its gray zone, did any members get similar experience? Be aware.
  3. Looks like Google have made it (slightly) harder to save images on their image search facility, which has to be a good thing. It's not going to solve the problem of image theft but every little bit helps in my view .... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-43085053 Marc
  4. Hi, I'm having a few days in France next week and should have time for shooting editorial. I'm aware that thngs aren't as 'liberal' here as they are here (many years ago, long before I was shooting stock, I was bawled at by a French woman for shooting a group of people practicing martial arts in the Jardin de Luxembourg [iIRC]), but searchng the forums here on 'France' didn't highlight any obvious info. I Googled, and got some English language sites which weren't necessarily authoritative (and the info contradicted each other), and a couple of French sites which were probably authoritative,
  5. Hi, I'm completely new to Alamy or selling photographs online and I just have a legal question which confuses me a bit: In addition to others, I have a lot of nice pictures that were taken from public streets but feature recognizable buildings in the background (for example from the Vegas strip. Pics that show some of the hotels in the background, day or night) Also cityscape views taken from my room that show a number of the hotels, but from a far distance. One can read the hotel logos (such as "Caesar's Palace," "Bally's" etc, but, again, it's at a distance, no real details of the h
  6. The forum has seen various topics recently around the subjects of legality, accreditation, Alamy contract and changes thereto, making it clear that the buck stops with the photographer, not Alamy. As I have come to freelance photography and photojournalism from the bottom up, I have yet to join any professional body or taken out any indemnity insurance, but I am thinking I really should. My main concerns are getting legal help in the (hopefully unlikely) event of being subject to legal action and expertise and representation without having to dig deep into my empty pockets to hire a lawye
  7. hi, i am also new to alamy and i have some questions about legal issues. As all we know we can upload any image to alamy if it passes qc and we are free to choose between RM and RF or we can answer whatever we like to "is this image requires property release" question. No one cares. Ok well my question is if i choose wrong answer what will happen? For example if i choose there is no one in that image (totally mistakenly) BUT there are some people on that image whose responsibility is that or if i choose that image does not require property release BUT again it actually does what ha
  8. I have contributed here only a little, then had some health issues that kept me away for some time but I am slowly coming back. My question is about valid releases. Will Alamy accept other releases besides the ones on the resources page? Further, I had a very good friend (just passed away) named Rich Halperin who was an attorney, NANPA Board Member and Past President (as am I except for the attorney part). He contributed greatly to the photographer's rights issues and was emphatic that model/property releases DO NOT require an exchange of "valuable consideration" - they ARE NOT contract
  9. Hello, I am new to Alamy and photography in general, so it is the first time I am trying to sell my pictures and heard that you need a release for both people and property. It is all cool, however, it gets a little tricky when... you make a picture with tens of building in it. For example, Manhattan skyline as seen from another side of the Hudson river. Does the property release rule still apply in this case? If so, how one is supposed to get a property release for tens or potentially hundreds of buildings? Any help/info is much appreciated! Thanks, Vlad
  10. There was much debate in the other place about the legal position on photographing in public in France This article from the New York Times provides some very useful and timely observations http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/04/23/paris-city-of-rights/ km
  11. Hi, I'm pretty new to this and want to make sure I have things right regarding the need for property releases. I have a photo of a lovely birthday cake which was purchased at the grocery store's bakery. As it was designed and created by the bakers in the store, would it require a property release to be an RF image? And in general, for photos of any prepared foods and beverages - purchased either in stores or in restaurants - do they need property releases? Thanks for your help.
