In Topic: Nautilus Swell - Images used without permission

12 February 2013 - 10:59 AM

Hi Simon,
They are not currently registered with the US copyright office, but that is something that I will do if I can't reach an amicable agreement shortly.

Nautilus is a Canadian company, but their web registration and hosting appears to be in the USA (as am I).

The agreement I offered was meant to cover all past uses, but no ongoing or future uses. But after 11 months of back and forth. I recently set a one week deadline for them to accept my offer. They missed that deadline. So currently, there is not an offer on the table from either party.

Two of my images are currently on one of their sites (nautilusswellstories.com) and they both contain my metadata and my name in the filename. Two images appeared on their homepage in the past, but they took them down when I alerted them they were using my photos without permission.The metadata was stripped before they put them on the homepage. And they have used two images in their email newsletter. In the newsletter, my photos were used as part of a composite. I haven't checked, but it is doubtful that the composite would have my metadata.

I appreciate any input you can offer.
