Image Scraping is a new term to me, but the big G is suing the other big G over it.  This is the first I have heard of it.  I'm not sure if there is a way to quantify the damages.  It seems as though this would affect Alamy contributors too.  That is why I am posting this link

Good video on the link. If big G would pay to put a shortened version of that in a prime time advertising slot it could help us all....

You may want to consider that the sponsors of the petition once said “We are not the photographer’s friend”. They also made a statement to the effect of: We can milk the cow without paying for it.

 
Beware, be very afraid.

Tweeted it. 

 

Damn cheek. Had GuidoFawkes (owned by News Corp) rip off a picture I had of Steve Coogan, Tom Watson and Peter Jukes (Jukes Live Tweeted Phone Hacking trial). I drove Jukes to meet them and set up picture. I told Guido Fawkes they had to pay £300 to each of us which we would then donate to charity. No reply other than they took picture down. I remember Murdoch whinging, quite rightly, about Beeb and other broadcasters using his newspaper stories for free with very little adaptation. He said he phoned them up and they deleted the story. 

 

Local Croydon website ripped off a picture of mine too. Don't mind them as they are skint. But did say go via Alamy please next time -might be as little as £15. 

 

Best wishes and keep the thieves out of your hard earned images. 

 

Adrian.
