A sale! Excellent! And does it correspond to that usage?

 

Can't tell until it appears in my sales history overnight, that image was zoomed on friday, so the jury is out

They have probably asked Alamy for a retrospective licence after seeing the tweeted comments.

They may think they have "rectified" it with Alamy, but they haven't "rectified" it with the OP. A moderate number of quid doesn't make it uninfringing.

The usual excuse- a "mistake". It isn't a mistake. The admission says as much and helps you, OP.

No prisoners.

I believe Alamy has issued retrospective licences in the past, at least I read it somewhere in the forums.

 

If that is the case the OP does not have a leg to stand on regarding illegal usage.

 

My opinion only.

I'm not sure Alamy is within its contractual rights to license retrospectively for a user who doesn't have a contract. A question for MS at least.

I'm intrigued that the Police apologist says it's a "genuine mistake". I shoplifted two packets of smoked salmon from ASDA and, when apprehended, I too suggested it was a "genuine mistake". My case comes up next week*

I expect their twitter feed is run by someone who is perhaps not as conversant with the law of the land as other people within the organisation. Possibly an IT specialist who grew up using Google to get pics to use in his homework.

Like many webmasters, designers and IT people in the basements of private sector companies and public organisations!

Definitely got some "free exposure" out of this one, I'd think. That's what I seem to work for most of the time anyway. :-)

In the past, Alamy has issued the Daily Muddle with restrospective licences for unreported uses. Sadly, Alamy's policy is to charge them their current price, not the higher price which prevailed at the time of the unreported use, and certainly no 'discouraging' penalty for not reporting a use.

You can see the license details today if you download and open the sales report. The same details are there that will appear tomorrow under the sales history.

 

Geoff.

 

Thanks for that, didn't realise you could do that.

 

Here are the details:

 

Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Commercial electronic ;  Media: Website, app and social media ;  Industry sector: Government (local, regional, national) ;  Start: 02 August 2016 ; End: 02 August 2021 ;  Additional Details: License valid from 01/07/2016 

$23.02 -$11.51 $11.51 UK

 

 

Looks to me like a Retrospective License has been applied at source

Can't wait for my next shoplifting trip to NI. If I get caught I can just rectify it with the shop owners!

I would not be happy. :angry:

In hindsight it was possibly the wrong move to alert them to their mistake before starting recovery proceedings?

I take your point, but I hadn't started recovery proceedings at any point or agreed to a retrospective license for the period 19th July to the 2nd of August
