Finding Copyright Infringements on the Web - Photography

This post about finding copyright infringements on the web is written by a photographer I follow on Google+.
If you share your photography on the internet it is very likely that people are using them elsewhere on the web without your permission. No amount of transparent overlay images, right click disabling, watermarking, or other measures are going to stop this. Copyright infringements may be in the form of anything from use on personal blogs to commercial uses by large companies. Some may give you image credit, but most of the time I havenít found this to be the case. Others may even take the credit for your image themselves! So how do you find these infringements on the web?

Maybe you could use the add-on extension from Firefox, it's the Copyright Infringement Finder. As per it's description, it says that, "this add-on makes it easy to search to see if anyone is infringing on your copyrighted photos by right clicking any image and it will automatically do a google image search for that image."

your stuff will be shared on other sites by other users without your consent. to see who is multiplying your content you make you lose alots of time. not worth it if you ask me

imho if you share something on the internet thats intended to go viral or get a lot of social attention such as a funny video then you can expect it to the used by everyone. you can go on Instagram and see 200 users that watermarked the same video all claiming they are the original owner. You'll never get that stuff taken down. Even billion dollar companies deal with it every day, they pay people to meet a monthly quota of take downs. Ebay, Amazon and Etsy are the biggest targets cause those are being used to make profit and are easier to have removed.

You'd have to report every single twitter, instagram,youtube, website, blog etc...account and hope they do something about it.

like marcusdom said, it's not really worth your time unless you can pay employees to only do that. It's like war on drug. it never ends.
