mediates your copyright disputes
Fair remuneration for your work should be obvious. Yet all too often that doesn’t happen. Images are constantly being downloaded from the Internet to be uploaded again elsewhere without permission and without compensation for the author. Yet these images are often created by a professional photographer who then loses income as a result. That’s where Visual Rights Group comes in.
We provide that fair compensation, because fair p(l)ay is important. We do this on one hand by detecting and rectifying infringements in a clear, transparent way. We contact the infringer and clearly explain the infringement, how we operate and what the costs are. On the other hand, we also want to focus on prevention by informing them about the legal way to use visual content online.

Mediating copyright infringements
Using a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and quality checks, our experts monitor our customers’ images on the Internet. Most websites purchase their photos legally. But sometimes others ignore copyright, which affects the photographer who expects to be compensated for the use of his/her work.
When a photographer indicates that a photo he/she has taken is being used without his/her consent, our specialised legal team looks into the matter in detail. After a thorough analysis, they determine whether or not there is a copyright infringement. If in their opinion this is indeed the case, they will try to resolve the matter amicably as far as possible.
Educate and prevent
Prevention is of course better than cure. That is why we also focus on prevention: by informing people about how copyright works, and how to use image content legally. You can find information about copyright law here.
