skylineboy Posted February 16, 2014 Share Posted February 16, 2014 hi all, i have just found an image of mine, that is posted online. as some of you will know i have acquired a large amount of car images, and have recently started putting them on my own photoshelter and alamy. a few of the images appear to be on a website for car parts - and show the car as a kind of "this is the car", and none of them appear to be part of a particular shoot - eg different colours of the car and years, and reg plates from various states or countries etc, and convertible and hard tops. so looks to be a right click and save job from anywhere and then repost on their site to show which cars they have parts for. would i have a basis for asking them to remove the images that are mine? or for any compensation? the images are posted by myself on alamy and PS, even though both have watermarks on them that i have uploaded (except ps that said it takes upto a couple of days from uploading to them watermarking them), is it likely someone saved it whilst visible but not yet watermarked by PS servers? and many of the images, havent been used anywhere before to my knowledge - eg thousands of photos taken, but obviously not all of our photos get used etc. and only some have made it into mags etc through the original shooter. im pretty confident on this, as the ones that had been used, i was given example pages from the mags etc. would the matter be complicated by the fact that i wasnt the original shooter of the images, but am currently the copyright holder. in which case shouldnt they have credited both ME as Cr owner and the orginal shooter (as i have done on my site), eg copyright me, photo taken by xxx). this is standard in the uk, under moral rights. is there any way i could prove that the image was put up on their site AFTER i became the owner? or even to prove before i was owner. (as i guess if i explain i own it now, they will just say we got permission from xxx who original owned or took it? many thanks in advance for any help.
