Arvy777 Posted March 6, 2019 Share Posted March 6, 2019 (edited) Hello everyone, I am an amateur photographer and shooting only cause I love recording memories. Photography is an obsession to me. I post my photographs on Alamy, Youtube and social media. The day has come when I realised that posting photographs on Facebook for advertisement reason is bad idea and the only question I have now is how bad? Thought being part of any photographic organisation or other legal photographic body as Alamy is enough to be protected from copyright infringements and today I learned I was wrong.. While reading "Report an unauthorised use" I've learned that Alamy: quote: "can’t chase unauthorised uses on your behalf if your image… Has been used in a personal (non commercial) blog or on an individual’s social media platform." In my case I posted some photos on Facebook and ouch!, seems like will have to row against the wind and waves on my own without Alamy's help.. Briefly: I was asked for the permission but refused for my photographs to be used on "this" calendar. Two of my photographs wore printed on calendar without my permission. Unlike others my name was not included anywhere on the calendar. Calendar price was £7.50 [receipt]. UK based. Feel so insulted by this having nightmares. Where do I go from here and where to start from? Edited March 6, 2019 by Arvy777 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
