patstubbs Posted November 21, 2013 Share Posted November 21, 2013 Thanks to the poster who mentioned how to use Google images for searching for usage of photos - I did a search for the first time and have found various images of mine that were not purchased via Alamy. I have a question - I have searched the forum, but can't see the answer, so apologies if I've missed anything. An example is an image that has been sold twice, but when I searched for it, there are several publications who have used it... - I think I can work out who were the genuine ones who purchased via Alamy, and who are the ones that nicked it. One of them is in the Guardian and is credited to Alamy so that's obvious. None of the others are credited. Here is the Guardian link http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2012/may/05/art-rides-water-rail-way-lincoln - There was also a sale for "Corporate Package Use - Internal and External non advertising use" and there is a publication that has used the image - see here: http://www.opm.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/3103_Empowering_leadership_broch_2012.pdf. So I think this looks like the actual buyer. - The Guardian article has been reposted by a couple of websites. They've used the Guardian article and have simply copied and pasted with no credit to me, Alamy or the Guardian. I'm assuming they have no right to do this? Here is the link - scroll to the bottom http://www.coolcountrynews.com/page/57/ also http://www.nbtamirpoint.com/the-water-rail-way-lincoln-to-woodhall-spa/ and http://www.uship-online.com/?p=447 and http://www.sigmacourier.com/the-water-rail-way-lincoln-to-woodhall-spa/ These websites appear to be the ones who have used without purchasing. Can they legally rehash / repost articles and if not, do you think it's worth the effort to contact them. This is the first search I did, so very pleased that you are able to search for photos this way! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
