PhotoClaim – join our fight against image theft!

September 20-25, 2016 – Meet us at the Photokina in Cologne, the world’s biggest photography trade fair, in which ten thousands of photographers and photo-enthusiasts come together.

Here, PhotoClaim founder and CEO Nico Trinkhaus – a professional photographer himself – will make a speech at the Futurezone.

Under the title „How they stole 1.000.000 Euros from me“ and using personal experiences, Nico Trinkhaus will explain why image theft is anything but a trivial offence – and in particular, as well what possibilities exist right now to fight back against copyright infringement.

Who We Are, and how we help our photographers:

• We monitor your portfolio online
• PhotoClaim filters the findings by hand, aiming to focus exclusively on promising results, where a commercial usage took place – saving about 90% of our customers time. Only PhotoClaim offers this level of service!
• We secure all necessary evidence of infringements
• With PhotoClaim as as the central contact, our photographers have access to a solid and experienced international network of attorneys
• We cover all eventual process costs beforehand

We provide full service for:

• Professional photographers
• Photographers wishing to become professionals
• Photographers sick of stock photography

The „legal way“ is the only way:

• No punitive damages exist in European courts (unlike in American courts), so the companies feel they are off stealing
• Following the “legal way” means the companies who respect you will understand you
• The European Court released a judgement in July 2016, in which the dissuative effect of the process costs borne by the opponent are pointed out, thereby sharing PhotoClaim’s opinion.
