The Most Effective Way to Get Money Back
At PhotoClaim, when it comes to approaching opponents, we tend to choose the most arbitral way. We start with the Cease and Desist Order which obliges the infringer to remove the photograph and pay the photographer the licensing fee as well as the legal cost. The attorney can often come to an agreement with the infringing company. That makes sense for both sides because whenever the case is brought to court and the thieves lose, they must cover much higher costs.
Years of experience taught us that involving lawyers right at the very beginning of the legal process brings better results. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to resolve the case out of court. Some of Nico’s Bulgarian opponents turned out to be very stubborn and arrogant, reluctant to delete stolen pictures. Some denied the commercial use of images – the case is still in the Court of Appeal.
Surely, the fight against image theft is not a piece of cake. Still, it is an important matter well worth the effort. At PhotoClaim, we strive not only to get the money back but also to create the community with a high awareness of the copyright law. Winning a case brings a lot of satisfaction while lost ones always teach a lesson. Have you ever thought that your photos might have been stolen as well?
