Cryptoprocta Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 What about when a legitimate buyer puts these 'share' buttons on their page, so that their article/advert, complete with an Alamy image, can be copied onto Fb and/or other social media? I know of a recent example where an Alamy RM image was purchased and used in an a 'top ten location' article, with all the little 'share' buttons. A hotel in the top location copied the article and photo onto their Facebook page as a means of promoting their resort. Alamy support merely confirmed that the hotel company had not purchased the image an the artist was free to pursue them, as per usual. If buyers are legitimately allowed to put these share buttons on their pages with our images, as presumably they are allowed to do as per the Support answer, all the above is moot. That particular article/photo had been shared hundreds of times by the time the tog discovered its original use. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
