Credit line law with photo suppliers

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,   i have my images distributed to many 3rd party sites from various suppliers.

 

Recently i have seen a great deal of my images with the suppliers credit line without my name being mentioned anywhere,  i am annoyed by this as i am the creator and it is my copyright.

 

Dose anybody know how the law stands on this matter?

 

I have contacted the various suppliers about this,  they say they will change it but nothing get's changed.

 

Have a good day everybody!

 

Paul.

In which country?

You're not entitled in law to credit for a news image in the UK. For other images, it might amount to derogatory treatment which might increase damages for infringement.

Hi Mark,  most of the images come from my suppliers in Germany to various countries.

 

It is not the printed credit line that i am concerned about at the moment,  it is the online photo sites that are offering my images that are not adding my name to the credit line.

 

Cheers,

 

Paul.
