ChrisC Posted March 13, 2020 Share Posted March 13, 2020 Anyone else Photographed the Giants in Liverpool have an e-mail off Alamy regarding Royal De Luxe asking for removal of images understand the law below? There are over 2,000 on Alamy. My photos were taken in 2012, the first year the Giants came to Liverpool, I didn't have a press pass, but as this event wandered the streets of Liverpool and the photos by everybody, made this event and Royal De Luxe famous in the UK, after several visits, it seems to me, they have gotten to big fo their boots, can any advise? :- Dear Chris .....They say they have not authorised these images to be displayed on Alamy and that the reproduction of their creations constitutes an infringement of the Theatre Company’s copyright within the works, as such they have requested that the images be removed. As the creations are not permanently situated in a public place, we understand that images of the work would not be eligible to rely on the freedom of panorama exemptions under s62 of the UK Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988. We are however aware that Royal De Luxe grants use of the works for press purposes when prior consent is obtained. We just wanted to check whether you have the necessary permission from Royal De Luxe to attend the event in question to provide editorial coverage so we can let them know. Alternatively please let us know whether you would like us to remove the images in question...... Thanks Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
