another copyright issue...

ok, guys a quick on here...

basically on sunday evening I uploaded some pics to flickr (benwell dene terrace night shots) and on the monday i was informed that newcastle university were using the the photographs on there site...

I have all rights reserved on my pics too...

seems that they had run some kind of script that pulls the photos from a generated page (from tags that contain the word 'tyne' I believe) - when you actually click on the photo on their site it links back to the flickr page...

so, I contacted the university with an invoice - as I'm fed up of companies using my photos without paying (I'm still going through a battle with tyne tees news - they've said they'll pay but are dragging their heels about it...and that was from last october!)...
initially i got an apology from the webmaster - but I replied saying that this wasn't good enough, and i also contacted other users who'd pics had been used asking them to grab screen shots and to invoice them (just as well, as they've since removed the pics!)
now, he's saying that it's in the hands of their legal dept so they have admitted liability....

however, it seems that a mistake was made in the sense that the script doesn't block 'all rights reserved' pics - but, it is something they should have checked imo...

and I've also been informed that the webmaster has placed the following message on his twitter account!
"Learning my cost that Flickr's badge generator doesn't automatically exclude 'all rights reserved' public photos - or let you do so."

so, I'm just waiting to see what's gonna happen....

Placing it in the hands of their legal department is NOT the same as admitting liability !
An error in a script does not absolve them of responsibility - they should ensure they have been granted the rights to use images BEFORE they use them. Relying on a script to do that for them smacks of not using reasonable skill and care though.

Re: another copyright issue...

true - but I can't see how they can wriggle out of it - the webmaster apologised for the error and I've got a screenshot...

I'll just have to wait for their response now...

Re: another copyright issue...

yeah, I just wish tyne tees news were just as helpful - they're still giving me the run around - they used a photo in october!!

in fact - does anyone know of a good online cheap solicitor that can get things moving..?

cheers

Re: another copyright issue...

I will...they sound sincere enough...

but it worked with Tyne tees news tho...just in time by the looks of it - as they're laying off 600 staff now (well, ITV are...)
