Fighting Copyright Infringement In The Real World
Here's some great advice, courtesy of photographer Jeremy Nicholl by way of the A Photo Editor blog. It's Jeremy's recommendations for photographers who are interested in protecting copyrights. Namely, it's a list of the ten steps to take to help collect from an infringer who has profited from your images in violation of US copyright law. It's all well and good to brush up on your copyright, but when you read the part about the author collecting "a five figure settlement for a 468-pixel wide image" that had been used illegally on a site he had never heard of, these ten tips take on a whole new meaning (and value). So pay attention and protect your rights!
