They have made a derivative work (1 infraction) then used it unlicensed for commercial gain (2nd infraction)Ha, yep they can't dispute my neighbours house.
I looks like a Dutch plant seller using it for advertising, rather than an image/photo seller, so don't imagine it'll be worth anything.
Got to say though, it's impressive how Pixy works.
I guess you never know, but I don't have a paypal acct & don't even do online banking! If I thought it was worth it I guess I would consider opening an acct. but I think I'll wait until one of the multinationals nicks an image .... then I'll make a claim & add it then, before retiring to a sunny island.They have made a derivative work (1 infraction) then used it unlicensed for commercial gain (2nd infraction)
Surely worth a modest payout for you???
So, accessing via the price page you just leave that first code blank and it does not demand one to move on? In regard to the tax section........just what initially foxed you, that you sorted aok?Yes and Yes. Sorted the 'Tax' form as well, not that I am expecting to get any money.
If they require full address details and your NI number if their systems are in any way insecure they have all they need for ID theft hackingsYou just use your national insurance number
I very much doubt that a watermark would have any affect on your images. If you are saying all rights reserved you are saying no one can use them with permission. Any use without permission, regardless if you had a watermark are reserved.quick (couple of) questions.
thought I would take a look for the fun of it (as don't expect any of mine to be used, but hey ). Turns out, that a few are! A lot of them are older shots and don't have any copyright/watermarks on them, but as they are from Flickr and set as all rights reserved, does that still cover me? also, has anyone come across hiveminer.com. A lot of mine seem to be on there and not really sure what that is? Looks like it is just some sort of search engine on photo tags???
Sorry if this should really be in a new thread, will go and start one if this isn't the best/right place for this.
also, has anyone come across PinsDaddy.com. Again, seems a search engine that is taking photos from Flickr but seem to be stating they are doing everything legitimately -
"PinsDaddy.com allows you to search, manage and add free stock photos to blogs, forums, websites and other online media"
They will tell you if you ask ,I know it's genuine though as with one of mine I had to sign online court papers for the Louisiana state court ,stating the amount they were taking the company to court for ,and I received half the stated amount.Do they tell you what was paid by the offender or do they just give you an amount that you double in order to come to a conclusion ?
What type of your images tend to get stolen/used?They will tell you if you ask ,I know it's genuine though as with one of mine I had to sign online court papers for the Louisiana state court ,stating the amount they were taking the company to court for ,and I received half the stated amount.
And there's no holding back on payouts either usually within a fortnight or less of settlement ,you can review all your cases progress in your account as well
Looks like it starts with the latest and works back in time ... you can set it to ignore a specific website, e.g. Twitter, which I guess narrows down the matches but I don't know if that affects the 500.Anyone know what happens when you've got the free account limited to 500 images, and you go over the 500? Does it ignore the new ones or the old ones or can you beat the count by telling Pixsy to ignore images? I have a lot of Sun and Moon shots which inevitably attract a lot of 'matches' but I'd like their system to just ignore those images.
Sadly my only real matches are perfectly legit, so no new camera for me either.
I noticed the way Pixsy linked to Flickr was seamless compared to 500pxPossibly where the difference is ,I think my Flickr stream stands at around 6000 or so shots ,I have a few on 500px but found it messier to use .TBH Flickr over the years has done me proud I have sold quiet a few images from there and also had quiet a few shown on springwatch/ autumnwatch etc as has the wife and son ,I have also had quiet a few published from there (with my full permission) in books ,magazines and papers. .
But it really annoyed me to see that I had so many images stolen and used at least pixsy has given me some retribution and it's a nice little earner getting far more than I have sold images for ,I think my highest sale was for £105 for a sunset shot used by a Japanese pop group for a c.d cover .
Just on the initial free one so all payouts have been done from the initial 500I noticed the way Pixsy linked to Flickr was seamless compared to 500px
Are you on one of their monthly paid services or the free one ~ whichever one how does it cope(?) with your 6000 images?
But if the site is a commercial one I.e. by the use of your image they are profiting, whether high res or not they surely they should pay an appropriate license fee???I just found one of my horse heads on someone elses site but can`t do a thing as it says not High Resolution.
I have loads on sites like this. They are pulling images from Flickr using the Flickr api.Here is the site, mine is the horse face page 4
