Getty Images wins £2,000 settlement over unauthorized web use of photo


Just came across this article, thought I'd share:

Oscar Michelen:
This looks  like the image was actually registered with the copyright office at the time of the infringement.  Then it makes sense; otherwise it appears that the defendant may have settled too quickly.  But note that even after litigation and even when they get their legal fees, Getty ends up with right around what they have been asking for anyway. I would be interested in seeing what the UK blogs on Getty have to say about the subject.  especially since UK law does not allow for damages in cases of innocent infringement. Thanks for sharing this with us.
