Take Action When You Find Your Content Misused
Everyone comes across beautiful images and amazing digital art when perusing through the Internet. And many times, professionals run into their own images being used on other websites. I assume that most pros take pride in their work and enjoy showcasing it. Of course, infringement is the inherent danger of putting your prized images out there for all to see. Now, it could be a simple blogger that found your image and used it on a post, but it could also be a commercial website, generating revenue from your property.
After months of research around this topic, I noticed a common theme regarding what to do when this happens to you. It came down to two key factors: time and money. It is too time consuming and costly to take actions on these infringing folks. So...what can you do?
Drum role please... you can let Digimarc for Images do it for you. I'm very excited to announce that we are in the process of integrating a feature that allows our customers to take action on image finds from our Digimarc Search Service. You'll be able to send a take down notice, request attribution, or even request license payment for any of your images that have been infringed. We have a great partner, ImageSpan, who is helping us enable this feature. Look for this feature to be available within the next few months.
