Richard Tadman Posted December 20, 2018 Share Posted December 20, 2018 Can anyone please clarify this for me? I was of the opinion that images on Alamy's website were protected against copyright abuse by application of a watermark. Hence, if an image appeared on a social media website that had been lifted from Alamy without obtaining a licence, it was a flagrant breach of copyright and denied the owner and Alamy their fee for using same. However, I have come across this blog which seems to suggest that provided the image is simply shared as described, this is perfectly acceptable and no copyright infringement occurs..https://www.alamy.com/blog/4807-2 My question therefore; does this not go against the fundamental principal that contributors submit images in order to sell them and not to have them freely shared among anyone on social media who feels so inclined?
