Law and Order 101: Image theft examined and explained (Part two)

Law and Order 101: Image theft examined and explained (Part two)

By Alex Stepanov (www.astepanov.com)

How to protect your images online

This article continues the conversation about image theft started in “Law and Order 101: Image theft examined and explained (Part one)“. If you have not had a chance to read the first part, may we recommend it to your attention, as it might help to understand some parlance we use throughout this article.

In the first part of the article, we more or less covered the “persona” – the group traits of the people and companies that use your images for commercial purposes without asking for your permission, much less paying for the usage.

Again, I would like to stress that we are specifically focusing the conversation on the images used for commercial purposes (advertisement, merchandizing, calendars etc.) – someone who might downloads your image and put it on the wall, sets a regrettable example but is unlikely to make any profit off off it and thus the whole matter becomes a question of morale rather than business.

First things first…

  1. Appreciate this post immensely!
    Question…. can you submit multiple images to the Copyright Office simultaneously… say as a pdf… and obtain copyrights for each image in the pdf for the one filing fee?

    • Hi Michael,

      You are most welcome. In short – yes you can, but you will need to submit your images either separately or (better yet) ZIP them into an archive and deposit the ZIP file. This way, you will be able to register multiple images at once. I would stay away from using PDF’s and such as they are more likely to be returned.

      On the related note – in the coming month, we will publish an e-book, which will go over all those questions in great details. So… stay tuned as they say!
