KWheal Posted June 1, 2017 Share Posted June 1, 2017 A Funny thing happened the other day. I was watching a film on terrestrial tv channel in the uk which was a biopic about Michael Jackson and about half way through there was a photo of his album " Off the wall " with the record half out of the sleeve. Also there was a sticker on it which was regarding a special edition. At the end of the film alamy got a credit. I checked and lo and behold on alamy mine was the only shot of this particular album and it was out of the sleeve exactly as my shot was. The program/film was made for one of the top 5 terrestrial tv companies in the UK by another similar company in 2017 so I contacted alamy and their answer..... "some of our editorial clients report after 3 months if it has not been reported by then please contact us with evidence. There is a relevant download." Now there is no way that it was aired as soon as it was made and I get really fed up at how many companies use photos and pay after. So I have to find the exact spot and pause it on my tv and then take a photo and then send it to Alamy. Why cant they just charge these companies on download and alamy can refund them for what they don't use We have all got used to asking alamy to chase newspapers for undeclared images, Calendars not paying until after publication and after sales but I didn't realise that we have to follow the procedure of chasing unreported sales to alamy regarding TV / Film companies Kevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
