Image used without approval


[link to this post]
 
Metalhead41 was lucky in that permission was actually requested.

I have today found one of my images on someone else's website. It has been copied from the website of one of my cricket clubs (the only place it should be found) without permission and has had all the EXIF/IPTC tags expunged, including the "Copyright ... all rights reserved" one. No credit is given.

I am not looking for payment if the image is used in appropriate context (it is). In fact, with prior permission, and with both IPTC tags and a credit to the cricket club website in place I would have been delighted for them to use the photo and would have let them have a high resolution version of the image to work from. But they did not, and so I am angry.

I am not sure how best to pursue this.

I believe the first point of call in this situation is sending a copyright infringement notice to the website owner regarding the use of your image. If they ignore you then it's up to you how far you take it, or they may offer payment for it smile

Thanks; that makes sense.

Have you seen any online template for a copyright infringement notice?

Not seen any at the moment, but haven't really looked to be honest...

The company phoned me and apologised.

They are still using the image, but with my agreement and there is now a credit and a link to the cricket club website.

A good resolution.
