Lawyers aren't required in a county court claim for breach of copyright, and the law doesn't only protect professional photographers, although not so long ago it would probably have helped if you could demonstrate loss of earnings. Things have changed in the UK, and it's fitting that they have, regardless of those charitable souls who like to give their photos away.

Boony, your position is shifting. You were saying he wouldn't be able to prove photos were the same now you're saying he couldn't afford a lawyer, (he doesn't need one). You need to realise photographers aren't helpless in situations like these and that's why the OP asked for and received help. Is your advice just to give up before even trying?

Look back at the threads they are there !

First time I have come across this site and after studying the shots including the windows people lights and exposure times , these have to be the same shot, and yes it could be copied .... and pasted .. just like they did on that site ! and thats the ONLY way your going to reproduce that exact shot.

There is an easy way to find shots that have been stolen without much effort as I just did with that , instal google chrome as your browser then right click on your photo on a web page and click search google with this image, there is also standalone and plugin browser technology for ie and firefox which does the same , worth a look out there people - get ready to send some invoices out Wink

Yes it's all over the shop! No matter, providing it hasn't been offered FOC anywhere during its history.

My advice Chris is to try it, see what happens! Please go ahead and prove me wrong. My position on that hasn't changed but you don't seem willing to put your theory into practice here mate. You're talking as though this is the crime of the century - a court will view it very differently unless you're very skilled and experienced in putting across a legal arguement. You can link to all the websites "proving" your point that you want to, that means nothing. Please go ahead and take this instance of copyright infringement all the way so we can see what the outcome is! I WANT you to prove me wrong and get a nice big payout for the O.P.

I clarified my position in the original post in this thread, if you take that as a change in my position so be it like I've said before your opinion is something you're entitled to. My position is still the same - you're talking as though the hotel firm won't defend itself here.

Please, Chris - take it to court/tribunal/whatever it would be in this instance and then report back fella.

The trouble with skip-reading threads as you did Boony is that you get your facts wrong. It's not my pictures that are in dispute here.

I didn't link to any, you're skip-reading again.

For those interested the way to check your images in Firefox is to open your image in one tab and Google Images in another, drag your image to the Google Images tab which Firefox will switch too, continue dragging and drop it into the search box.

You don't need to open your image in Firefox - you can drag it into Google images on Firefox from any folder on your computer. I dragged in my Northern Lights one and Google told me it was on www.chrislongley.com/ and on my own Flickr page but, interestingly, not on ePz.
