Fairplay in Photos

We help you for free, if you get a copyright infringement e-mail

Don’t worry if you receive a copyright infringement letter. We offer you a helping hand, and it’s totally free …

Don't ignore a copyright infringement notice

Generally speaking, ignoring a notification and/or cease and desist letter is a bad idea. While it might be tempting to ignore the letter, take down the image, and hope the problem goes away, the copyright holder may spend more resources to protect their copyright, and you’re likely to hear from them again.

If the copyright holder has to invest additional resources in addressing the infringement, those incurred costs can be added to the damages that the copyright holder is seeking payment for.

In other words, ignoring the issue may just make it more expensive in the end.

Why does JumpStory provide the Fairplay in Photos service?

We’ve launched this free service, because we’ve heard from a growing number of people, who are not treated fairly and receive copyright infringement letters on perfectly legal photos such as CC0-images, Public Domain or similar.

Currently, no one is looking out for the stock photo community. The stock photo agencies just want to make money, and they use quite aggressive methods.

Small companies, freelancers etc. deserve help. We provide this for free!

Who can use the service?

This free service is for companies, webmasters, marketers, and so on, who have received a photo infringement letter. We have seen legal demands for over $8,000 for the use of just one image on social media.

What we do is help you make sure whether you have used the image in a legal way or not. We do this by looking into the legal history of the image.
Afterwards, we advise you on what to do next.

This service is not legal advice or a substitute for legal advice. Often times, however, the cases can be settled without a lawyer, and these are the cases that we can assist you with.

No. Even though our team is very experienced and skilled in the industry of stock photos, we are not lawyers and the advice that we offer is not similar to you hiring a lawyer.

Fairplay in Photos is therefore not legal advice, nor a substitute for legal advice. Often times, however, the cases can be settled without a lawyer, and it’s in these cases that we can assist you.

We strongly advise you to use a service that includes insurance. That way, you don’t have to worry. Of course, we would also suggest using JumpStory for your future image needs, but we obviously have a bit of a bias here.
