We have something quite big to share today! Over the last weeks, we have been keeping a close eye on our statistics as we knew something big was coming. And here we are… with 4 million euro regained for our photographers!
Every single day we monitor the Internet (and sometimes we feel as if we really reached its end) in search of stolen photos online. Image theft isn’t a piece of cake. It’s a long and winding road with a lot of bumps. But when we think of all the stops – whenever we manage to regain a rewarding sum for our clients – this is what drives us!
An error may slip through the statistics but honest and positive reviews from our clients do not lie! Since 4 million is quite a sum, we created our stats with extra care and precision. See how we grew over the last 5 years.
Even though it is not yet they end of 2019, we may already say that it has been an exceptionally good year. Numbers speak for themselves!
Curious from which countries came the biggest sums? We got back 749,484 euro from German opponents. Italians paid the photographers back 331,089 euro while only a slightly smaller amount of 325,508 euro came from the Netherlands.
So far we manged to help and regain money for 162 photographers in 47 countries all around the world. 3 of them already received more than 250,000 euro. There is also quite a big group (14) of those for whom we regained more than 50,000 euro. Next in line are the 30 clients for who already received more than 25,000 euro from their copyrights.
You might be the next to join the club of photographers (sing up here) who do not waste time on worrying that their photos might be getting stolen online. They are focused on shooting! And that is how it should be.
