M.Chapman Posted September 27, 2013 Share Posted September 27, 2013 In March this year a crop from one of my Alamy images was published by a UK newspaper online, the sale was correctly reported and I received my commission from Alamy (thanks). The original image was both cropped and downsized to 460 x 276 pixels. I have just discovered the same cropped image is now being used by a UK National House builder on their website to promote the local environment around one of their forthcoming housing developments. The crop used is identical to the crop in the newspaper usage (although the image has been further downsized to 290 x 174 pixels). This image is only available via Alamy who have confirmed that they have not supplied this image to the House-builder in question. I'm therefore 99.9% certain the image has been copied from the Newspaper's website and I want to pursue them. Is there a standard letter or form of words I should use? What sort of compensation should I seek? It occurs to me that they may want to use the same image in a brochure for the development and would like access to a higher res version, so I could offer that too.
