Richard Coombs Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 I wonder if we shouldn't have a separate thread/forum category for this subject. It seems to be happening more and more. Anyway, familiar story. I found one of my images used on a UK company blog site. Checked with Alamy who knew nothing about it, which I suspected. I sent a polite email asking how they came by the image etc. etc. along with a screenshot so that they could see what I was talking about. This is the reply that I got: Richard Thanks for your email. The image was obtained from Google Images and there was no license or copyright information with it when selected. I can only apologise if this has been used incorrectly. I have removed the image from the source blog post A fairly typical response in this situation I guess. Question is, is there anything to pursue, or not worth it? As far as I can see it had been there since pre-March this year. Hiding behind Google Images seems to be becoming the in thing amongst the Image thieves to try to justify use. Interestingly, this image had been licensed earlier this year for use on a blog, for which the company paid the princely sum of $55.51 gross, not a lot, but at least they paid for the bloody thing! spacecadet, you're pretty sharp on this subject, what are your thoughts?
