ImageRights Offers to Protect Your Copyright on the Web

ImageRights International is offering a service that promises to help protect the copyrights of photographers and stock photo agencies by scouring the Internet and tracking down where your images are being used and displayed.

Targeted to the estimated three million worldwide commercial photographers, ImageRights is applying visual search and image recognition technology to track the use of photographs and illustrations across the Web. The company said this enables rights holders to discover and ultimately recover fees for the unlicenced use of their works.

Subscribers to the service upload their photographs and illustrations to the system, and the ImageRights service will provide a weekly report detailing any image matches that it has found on the web. The report provides contact information for the infringing sites, enabling users to follow-up with those persons or companies directly. Subscription fees start at $5 a month for 250 images and it goes up to $35 for 10,000 images, with a one-time setup fee of $10.
