Has anyone took part in KODAKOne new business program? They are advertising on Instagram?

I thought this was dead and buried. Do you have any more info on this?

Just went to take a look at their site.

They're a copyright infringement site - they chase up uses and seek payment after the fact.

Their web site is rather sluggish, and when I went to their "About" page, it tried to load Flash (remember that) which it can't because it's turned off in my browser. No sane site still uses Flash

They licensed the Kodak name for their business as it's recognizable (it is, but as a business whose time has passed)

Here's the text from their about page:

"RYDE Holding, Inc., through a brand licensing agreement established in 2017 with Eastman Kodak Company, created the KODAKOne platform and the KODAKCoin cryptocurrency to empower content creators, content owners and photography agencies to take greater control in image rights management.

RYDE Holding, Inc. will provide digital asset management and protection under the Kodak brand for photographers and image-related intellectual property holders worldwide.

Based in Venice, California, RYDE Holding, Inc. has a development and operations team with deep expertise in proprietary blockchain development, big data, copyright law, artificial intelligence-enabled image recognition and post-licensing monetization systems."


So they have buzzwords and a well-known brand name.

Here's the team.

I didn't find any price information, but I'm assuming they charge for this service. I clicked the "Sign Up" button and it gave a page where I can book a call with Calendly for them to show me around and we discuss my needs. I assume that means they're really expensive :)

They have a client story about how a photographer specializing in climate change had hired them, but the bulk of the story is about him and only one short piece about the service (no pricing information)

"The Guardian newspaper in the UK ran that photograph as the lead story on the front page. About a week later, I just googled that image, and I was shocked by the number of people that have just used the image on websites. Even places like La Republicca, which is the largest daily selling newspaper in Italy, they had taken the image and used it. This is the kind of thing that you would like to think that newspapers should know better than that.

"I ended up getting some money out of La Republicca, but it is complicated. As an individual, I dont have the time or resources to chase people. Reality is that I am sure that for every case I find out about, there are probably a thousand other cases I am not aware of and, there is very little I can do. This is why I use the services of KODAKOne to chase these things for me in a way that I would not be able to do as an individual."

One more PR piece from KodakOne staff that suggests they want to tackle the lower priced Royalty Free market - possibly why they've started advertising on Instagram? Seems heavy on the metaphor and light on the details to me

The only way I'd consider it is if they took a commission on any money retrieved. If they are as good as claimed they'd be coining it. Though they'd need to with a staff of at least 22. (Norton won't let me go to their about us link).
