Title: Images used on multiple sites
Post by: John Messingham on July 08, 2019, 04:29
Hi All,

I recently made an image sale and shortly after became aware that the article the image was used to illustrate has been duplicated on two other sites. Is this normal or should I be chasing for further earnings?

Part of the reason for asking is that I have the same issue on another image in the pipeline (usage earnings not reported yet).

If the article is syndicated and used on multiple sites, I doubt that we would get multiple licenses? Example: if AP uses one of your images and it appears in 50 different newspapers, you don't get 50 licenses, just one.

Umm. If they are the same editorial house or company or something like that I don't think they need to buy the picture x times. But this seems like the same story but from different houses... Do you only sell that picture in ONE agency? If so, you only have ONE sale? You can ask the agency I guess...

Hi Pete and David,

Thanks for the replies.

I cannot find any link between the sites so I will drop the agency a message and see what they say.

Again, thanks for the replies.
