Hi all
Copyright and such acts as SOPA and Orphan Works Bills are all issues on creatives minds.
I came across a tool that worked quite well for me on first test.
I have a lot of images on Stock sites.
Am concerned that some get used without purchase, so I gave Search in Image by Google a try.
http://www.google.com/insidesearch/searchbyimag...

I managed to find 7 examples online that were violating my rights on the image.

Several removed or credited me.

Worth a look, I know it doesn’t stop everything, but its a start.

I have the best luck using google search by images . Search for copies of the images using Yandex.ru, Tineye.com, Google.com, Baidu.com and Cydral.com via right click menu with the Who Stole my pictures addon for Firefox One click on the image and it searches all of them.

I also have had the best luck w/google’s reverse image search as well as a search of their images (and web) for pertinent terms/name. I need to find out if our version of Firefox will support the add on because it appears it’d save a lot of time to do it that way.

I saw Damien Mason’s work on desktopdonkey, and Karin Taylor’s on tattoomule. Other work looked familiar but not sure whose it is. So far haven’t found mine. Are these last group all the same outfit, Joe, or all different?

I looked thru all these several hours ago, and that last one pixceleb again about one hour ago without finding my work, BUT, just now, I searched pixceleb again and found three of my works. http://www.pixceleb.com/cschnack/ The images seemed different every time I went there, which explains it. I saved a shot of the entire pg. When the correct place to send a DMCA notice is found I’ll be submitting one, too. The site strikes me as something that would be seen for what it is, ridiculous and amateurish, and I have to wonder WHO goes to sites like these?

People may innocently search for something, land on the scraper site, and then click the ads out of confusion. Scraper sites are also used in link farming, a practice which involves the maintenance of several sites which all link to each other, thereby inflating search engine rankings.

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-scraper-site.htm

The content that they steal helps them to move higher up in search rankings, sometimes ahead of the original source of the content

Getting a scraper site to remove copyrighted content can be extremely challenging, as many such sites use layers of subterfuge to conceal their owners. Some frustrated webmasters go directly to the company which hosts the scraper site, citing copyright violations and requesting an immediate removal of the disputed content.

The amount of time I’ve spent on just these scraper sites in the last week or two has really been a pain and I can see some of you have had to spend even more time on it. I was lethargic from a cold and not painting so sat on the computer and did this. But this week I have got to work on some things that have a deadline, and despite finding more thefts am going to have to get back to my real work. I will be glad to send DMCA notices though. Ugh. This didn’t help Bloggers stealing my work again, too.

©Janis Zroback ©Janis Zroback 8199 posts

I saw some of my images on Real Madrid….I don’t know now if the images were there before I posted my name or not….I hesitate to send a notice because of this…

Cindy Schnackel Cindy Schnackel 5085 posts

Janis that’s how a couple of them worked for me last week…I typed in my name to search and found numerous examples of my work there, but they had not been there when I just looked at the pages for “red bubble” on the same site before. They seem to pull the images off a search engine like maybe google when a term is typed in.

©Janis Zroback ©Janis Zroback 8199 posts

I am beginning to think so….it’s happening too often with too many sites now…however the Ratedesi guy did say he gor ours from Google images when he downloaded Indian celebrities…I don’t exactly know how that works and wish someone would tell me how downloding Indian celebs, gets to my fruit paintings…
