MyFreeCopyright Problems

I wondered if anyone else is having problems.

I couldn’t log in at all yesterday because the log in wouldn’t show. Today I theoretically could log in but it tells me my e-mail isn’t recognised and when I click on one of the logo HTHMLs it tells me that the copyright has been removed. I never requested it to be removed so I have no idea what is going on.

Anybody have the same problems?

Please let me know.

    so its not just mine its everyones sigh you know how many works and hours i put in that crappy site if it has indeed deleted everything i mean i understand that things happen and stuff gets lost but not webpages i mean works of art get lost but not confirmations and emails you know i was told that copyrights are automatically created when the work is first created and when you publish them you have a date on your rb stats so its not a total loss but dang i spent 6 years and over 600 copyrights on that site

    did you see their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MyFreeCopyright?filter=3

  • I know what you mean. I’ve sent them 3 mails and have not had a single reply. All my copyrights seem to be gone and my login doesn’t work any more. I know this is a free service BUT it doesn’t cost anything to put a message somewhere on the site saying ’we’re experienciening problems please bear with us’. Sigh.

    Hi Sybille, have they responded to any of your emails yet? I tried unsuccessfully to sign into the site tonight.

  • Hi Linda, nope, I had not a single reply. Not sure what to suggest. I don’t want to ‘re sign up’ in the hope that the old copyights/login can be retrieved and will be retrieved. Maybe if more of us e-mail them they’ll do something about it or at least post on their FB page what is going on.

    I did send an email to them tonight. I also signed up with Myows I’m not sure what they’re like as I haven’t noticed anyone using them. I have new work to upload to RB and would like to register it somewhere before I add it to my gallery.

  • I know where you’re coming from Linda, however I am not sure I can help. I wish MyFreeCopyright was still working and I’ve never tried Myows. I remember looking at a few services like that, but I think except for MFC all the others had limitations. I just checked and you’ll need to pay at least $5 a month for the Myows service.

    And here’s another service – cheaper and I think more useful: http://www.safecreative.org/pro

    Thanks for the info Sybille. I hadn’t noticed the fee for Myows, they promote it as free, but it’s only the first couple of registrations that are free. The first link that you gave me is where I’d found Myows and Safe Creative, I intended looking at Safe Creative in the morning, which I now have done and I’ve just signed up with them.
    I’ll let you know if I hear anything from My Free Copyright

  • Fingers crossed it’ll all work out somehow.

    If you go to My Free Copyright and sign up as though you’ve never had an account you can get in. I did this last night, with the same username and password that I had previously. It didn’t come up “This username has already been taken”. I then received an email thanking me for choosing My Free Copyright. I successfully registered a pic.
    It’s quite bizarre how there’s been no answer to our emails and no mention on the site as to what has happened. They have lists of registered works that only go back as far as 5 July. So I’m presuming that they’ve lost all work previously submitted. The decision now is it worth going with them again, or trying another company.

  • I know what you mean, I am in two minds as well. If I can lose my copyrights just like that without an explanation it might be worth it to pay for it. Just not sure how I’d go about copyrighting all the previous images/writing… Still thinking about it.

    Sorry – bad news to report…
    This site MFC.com, has recently been sold and all accounts, files, everything was deleted. Apparently there is no continuity of service. However, the thing to note is, registering anything there provides us no legal standing see article … and regarding the actual protection it provides, see here. There are no replies to numerous emails to their “support” team for over a month now. Sad, but true…
