The Infringement Pathway - A step by step guide for issuing a copyright claim

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 17:20:06 GMT

WARNING This is the first draft of a work in progress aimed at helping photographers to take their own infringement cases through the small claims track in the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court (IPEC). It is likely to contain mistakes, misunderstandings of the law, omissions and procedures that might better be done in other ways. It was written by people with no legal training or qualifications and has not been checked by any qualified persons. It is published in the hope that it will prove helpful but should be read and used with a critical eye. Important aspects should be double checked with an authoritative source. You should also consult IPEC's own guide. You use this article at your own risk. The article is long and would better broken up into sub units with a table of contents and an index. If anyone can help with this task or if you have suggestions, corrections or other ways to improve it please email us or leave a comment at the end. We hope you find it helpful. If you do then please consider making a donation to EPUK - this is our only source of income. The moderators take no payment, all of your donation goes to running and improving the site. Once again - we present this with no promise of accuracy and take no responsibility for anything resulting from your use of this article. *********************************************************** Before you start: Can you identify the infringer with complete certainty in court? An email address and a website domain name with its Whois data is not enough. You need the name of the person or legal entity responsible and their address in England or Wales. You need solid evidence linking those names to that use. Is there any money to collect? Is the infringement serious enough to be worth your time? And does the infringer have recoverable assets? Do you have the resources, time, energy and above all the will to see it through with all the complications and annoyances? If you don't have a full set of yeses then stop right here. Go for a walk, take someone to lunch. Don't even start. Give it to a recovery service or just walk away. Before making contact collect all the evidence you will need because as soon as you contact the infringer it is likely that he will attempt to remove the evidence. Save the web page, screenshot the webpage. Don't forget to screenshot the image URL separately. Check the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive) entry and screenshot and save anything there. Note that the URL of the Wayback Machine page contains the precise date and time that the snapshot was taken. The Google Cache can be useful for anything recently deleted (search Google for cache:[URL]). Where there is one infringement, there may be others. Take a good look around the infringing website and any that it appears associated to. It may be worth looking to see if there is a designer credit and then checking out other sites they have designed. For small websites programs such as “Web reaper” can very useful. It downloads an entire website allowing one to quickly search the image directories. Any extra infringements found can then be typed into the URL and brought up in a browser for screenshots and saving directly from the live website. Use it responsibly and don’t download large websites. For large websites, Google image search can be very useful if you make a broad image search of the site such as “jpg” which will bring up all, or at least a large number of, the jpg format images on the site. Don’t forget “png” and “gif” as well. If an image has been recently deleted a search of the cache held by most search engines may bring up the page as it was before the deletion. If you can find the time length of infringement it can be helpful. You can do this with Wayback Machine and/or the last modified date shown in Firefox. To find a last modified date in Fire[...]

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:01:17 GMT


From their launch in 1999 Alamy had promoted themselves as the photographer-friendly stock agency.
