So... you feel violated...
If you feel that the use of one or more pictures here isn't covered by fair use,
please let me know so I can take care of things!
I often add many hundreds of images every day and I don't examine each and every one for tags, nor do I have a sixth sense
to tell me which ones are not for general publication, so it happens that some gets added when they shouldn't. It's not
intentional but it happens.
As I most likely never have been anywhere near 'your site(s)' (I'm not a member at any of the press agencies for instance)
I have no way of avoiding the occasional addition of your properitary images if they have been floating around the net
without copyright notices or source information. Now if this happens and you stumble across some you'd like removed,
I'll be happy to remove them when I'm satisfied that your claim is valid.
I will not remove anything based on an unsubstantiated semi-automatic email so but you must explain why your claim
is different (why this use is not fair use), and all copyright claims must be accompanied by proof of ownership for
every single offending image, including full documentation for the correlation between the images found here
and the ones you have copyrighted. In other words: It must describe exactly how you have determined that there is a
violation, and it must be complete enough for me to verify your claim!
Let me just repeat this. In order for me to take action on your claims, you must:
- Explain why my use isn't fair use.
I'm convinced that all zero-profit use is fair use.
- List every single offending image by its filename and the celebrity pictured.
I need this in order to find and remove the offending image(s). This is - in case you missed it - a HUGE archive with many hundreds of thousands of images.
- Explain how you determined that these are your images.
I may be able to automate removal this way.
- Explain how I can avoid your images in the future.
Easier for all of us, especially if it can be automated.
Failure to do so will result in no response and no action taken.
