Thanks for the reply Andy As my last post was off topic I have deleted the post. I did try to engage a solicitor 6 months ago but had no luck. Their prices can be as much as £400 to send a take down notice. It looks like I will need a solicitor for this one. I'll start looking again today. Thanks a...

Thanks for the reply Andy

A search on the Companies House website shows

Present company - companyname CIC
previous names - companyname LTD (company `A` in my previous post)

Mr X being the MD of both of these companies

Would this make them one company or two?

Back to my original question about the company changing hands. I asked the present company for details of the previous company and was told company A who ran the website before us was owned by company B who was an arms and lengths company of company C. The present company said I need to speak to com...

Thanks for your reply Andy

From your answer I now know how I will deal with the infringers who have used my images multiple times.

You have brought another question to mind. If the infringing copy is on the
hosting server what about people who hotlink to images, are they infringing.

Thanks for the reply Andy In s107(e) it states 'an infringing copy of a copyright work' As its singular I was thinking (hoping) that this would be an infringement. One of my photos has been used by the infringer many times on the website, would this be one infringement or an infringement for each ti...

Who is responsible

I contacted an infringer who took my images down immediately. The infringement dates from 2012 up until they took the photos down. They sent an email saying they took over the website a year ago. The change of registered business number on the website looks to confirm this. My question is who would ...

Thanks for your reply Andy. The epuk page you link to are the letters I used 12 days ago to make contact with the first 6 infringers. Five have taken down the photos and two have replied back, the other one has not replied or removed the photos. Would my next step be to send another letter to those ...

Small Claims Track Court

Hi I have found many businesses using my photos on the internet, some of the infringements go back 10 years (wayback machine). Most have removed my watermark, some have cloned out things or flipped images. My questions are: How do I price for the usage if a business has used a photo for 10 years, ca...
