’Let’s get back to money. How much can I get back?’
The amount of money you get back from your copyrights is usually calculated in accordance with MFM tables. Sometimes we stick to the price of photographer’s standard licenses – when it is higher than MFM. The final amount of money depends on the number, type and the way the photos were used.
’How long does it usually take to complete a case?’
If we stick to out of court settlement, the entire procedure usually takes up to 4 months. Since it all depends on a couple of different parties, we cannot provide you with a very precise time framework. But the money you can get back is worth the waiting.
’It all sounds pretty convincing but I have noticed that you are a German company and I am based in the United States, can I still start a collaboration with you?’
Absolutely! And you surely will not be the first one to do so. We operate in all European Countries but also in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland. We are currently also testing some other countries in order to be able to fight copyright infringement all around the world.
’One last thing, I sell licenses via GettyImages. Does it matter anyhow to you?’
You can still register with PhotoClaim but need to follow a couple of requirements. Before we start our work and set up cases for you, we need to know who purchased a license and confirm the minimum fee in case a potential infringer turns out legal.
’Okay, let’s get it started! What is the best way to contact you?’ You can sign up directly here, then our team will get back to you. We communicate with our clients via e-mail. In case of any questions, just send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also active on different social media channels but cannot deliver all of the sensitive data there so it is better to stick to e-mails.
