Nice when you see one of your images in use isn't it, or not

Recommended Posts

Rather blatant breach of copyright on a few Alamy images here including one of mine. I doubt anything will/can be done but I have sent it in.

Not quite sure the purpose of the website, unfinished WordPress template with random non nonsensical paragraphs

interesting, they have a huge terms of use section to ensure they aren't infringed upon...

i notice this a lot too, they infringe us, but then have a knowledge enough to put their own notices. surely thats classed as flagrant breaching, given they know enough to inforce their own CR's?

I did notice the place where you can reply, but I don't have the time to be snarky right now...I'm saving that up for a meeting at work this afternoon.:rolleyes:

When I reported some (many) of my Alamy watermarked images used on websites without a registered download, Alamy answered that they couldn't pursue the infringers because the site was based in a country (most often Panama) that was out of their reach, so to speak.

It's a cost of doing business.

But OP, if you see a UK infringement, ton of bricks. IPEC.
