  • Copyright Infringement

    Hello,

    Today for the third time PIA-Pakistan International Airlines used one of my pictures on their facebook page.
    As far as I know pictures on JP website are copyrighted and not on the public domain.
    Since PIA didn't contact me to ask for any authorization whatsoever, these are cases of copyright infrigement.

    Here is the record:

    What is your opinion and what do you recommend me to do?
    At the end, it's our community's interest that is threatened by such kind of acts, and I would like to make a point for all of us.

    Thank you in advance and kind regards

    Report it with fb. They will take the post down.

    Probably normal in Pakistan. Shaheen Air used quite a few photos that I took.

      Report to FB as Copyright Infringement with your Photo link & that particular post link.
      They certainly will take it down.

        You could send them an invoice for use of your images stating that they breached copyright.

              PIA has a lot of problems and I don't care about using copyrighted photos. After all, they are nations beyond any legal control.
              Obviously being a beggar with this attitude just to avoid paying a photographer ...

                I sent PIA a well drafted email but had no reply after one week.

                I then reported the 4 posts to Facebook and within a couple of hours the 4 posts were removed.

                Just for the sake of helping others in the same case, if you would like to report a copyright infringement, fill out this form: https://www.facebook.com/help/contac...043106/?ref=CR (link may be broken by then but hopefully not)

                  Good to know, thanks for that link. I'm sure other people will face this issue from other parties also. I'm sorry your situation hasn't worked out better.
