How does it work?

Our technology

Visual Rights Group's reverse image tracking technology scans the internet for matches to your images. Thanks to our virtually unlimited capacity, it doesn't matter how large your photo archive is - ten thousand photos or ten million - it's all doable. What's more, our technology finds your photos even if they have been cropped, mirrored or otherwise edited afterwards.

Manually filtered results

Once the scan is finished, Visual Rights Group employees manually filter all results. We remove websites that cannot be pursued, territories where we don’t work and other results that are mismatched from the list. After that, you decide which results you want us to take action on and which are permitted uses.

Flexible reporting

You review your results in our user friendly dashboard. There you can see at a glance where your images are being used, and whether something is an infringement or not can be indicated at the press of a button.

Our legal expertise

Our legal team, specialised in copyright law, checks the images you have marked, verifies that they are infringements, and supervises the settlements. They take care of the negotiation so that you receive compensation and the photo is taken offline.

A human approach

When there is a copyright infringement, we first try to reach an amicable settlement without the intervention of lawyers or bailiffs. If an amicable settlement is not possible, we decide together with you whether to start legal proceedings for the infringement.

More time for what you really want to do

By outsourcing the follow-up of your copyrights to us, you can concentrate on your photos. In short, you have more time to do what you love!

“I chose Visual Rights Group because of their reputation and experience in the field. What I love about them and the experience to date is: they're professional with reasonable expectations of collections and above all, they're fair - to me and to the company who used my images without approval.”
