Besides saving the photographers time, Pixsy Takedowns also empower them to pursue image theft on even non-commercial level, putting artists in complete control of their work.
Berlin, Germany (PRWEB) October 27, 2016
Pixsy, one of the leading reverse image search and copyright enforcement platforms, has introduced Pixsy Takedowns in direct response to the needs of thousands of photographers.
With the help of this new premium feature, photographers can access infringements on previously unavailable for resolution sites, including personal forums and blogs, all social media platforms, and websites hosted in countries with a malicious infringement reputation. Instead of spending twenty minutes filing a single DMCA takedown, photographers can now do it in just a few clicks with Pixsy Takedowns.
“DMCA takedowns enable us to control where our work is shown, and give us the power to be able to remove the work on the web where we did not provide permission for it to be used,” said Luke Tscharke, an award-winning Australian landscape photographer and a long-term Pixsy user. “Filling in the DMCA Takedown forms manually is a very time-consuming process and the Pixsy Takedowns feature makes this very easy.”
Besides saving the photographers time, Pixsy Takedowns also empower them to pursue image theft even on a non-commercial level, putting artists in complete control of their work.
“To date, we’ve helped thousands of photographers claim compensation for the unauthorized commercial use of their work. However, this is still a small fraction of image theft and we were often asked what can be done about the rest of the cases,” said Daniel Foster, Founder of Pixsy. “By introducing Pixsy Takedowns we give photographers an additional weapon for fighting image theft. Now, they can either decide to pursue an infringement case or, at the very least, remove the unauthorized work from anywhere on the web.”
Pixsy Takedowns are included as a part of the new premium plans offered by Pixsy. These range from a Personal plan with twenty monthly takedowns ($13/month) to a Business plan that allows for three hundred monthly takedowns ($54/month).
Pixsy is a leading reverse image search platform that empowers photographers and visual artists to discover where their work is published online. Pixsy combines this technology with a global network of law firms to help artists address instances of unauthorized commercial use.
