Are we able to chase infringements without Alamy?

Recommended Posts

Good morning

 

l have discovered a copy of my image used on a website.  I am still waiting for a response from contributor relations.  Can anyone advise if I am able to chase the infringement through small claims without Alamy, or do I have to involve Alamy as the image was “stolen” from their site?

 

The image is only available through Alamy, and this is the only social media I use.

 

thanks in advance

AFAIK in general they only go after licence abuse. If it's been copied from a legitimate licensee they will leave it to you.

In any case CR will advise if they have first dibsies. If they do and get nowhere they'll sign off on it and you can release the hounds.

They won't be in the office until Monday but you should get a definitive reply from them on whether they authorised it so hang tight 'til then.

That's exactly the response I got yesterday from Alamy re a similar situation for myself.

Make sure you do a screen grab as proof on the use.
