Re: fairlicensing@pamediagroup.com - infringement

Hi Andy,

The use of the image was alongside a testimonial from the boxer regarding my sport injury clinic. It wasn't a blog.

That is why I think it may be classed as commercial?

Re: fairlicensing@pamediagroup.com - infringement

AndyJ - I would value your expertise on some extra info which may influence this case. The image that I had used is an image of a boxer next to a testimonial on my website. So I believe this would count as commercial use? I have emailed Alamy to see what their cost would be to use in this manner, th...

Re: fairlicensing@pamediagroup.com - infringement

Thank you for your input - that is extremely interesting and helpful. My reply to them was to say that even if I follow the link that they provided in their email, and locate the image that I used, their own website directs me to Alamy to purchase the licence....so even through that route I cannot e...

Re: Copyright infringement via Permission Machine, acting on behalf of Alamy

Have to say that going to IPEC just to negotiate fees downwards seems to me a poor choice and rather risky- IPEC has made some pretty impressive awards in recent years, usually in line with the rights holder's claim. See http://www.epuk.org/news/aerial-photographer-s-damages-claim-achieves-record-h...

Re: Copyright infringement via Permission Machine, acting on behalf of Alamy

Thanks for you response Andy. Do you think I should reply to this email? - I was gearing up to reply stating that I was disappointed that they have have moved to refer to lawyers as I was reasonably trying to understand their request, yet they have ignored my request. And to highlight that I underst...
