I have Chatted to live support.. Mailed support..   

Told that (as seen),   Editorial Images sent to Photoambry ar marked as regular RF files..     
I don't want my Editorial images to be sold as RF..  as it is clear copyright infringement..  who are responsible if they sale and are using in a wrong way ?    should we poll out the API program until  it is fixed ?

Hope action is taken..

Make sure you use the correct terminology.  Editorial is sold RF all over the place.

Yes you are right as (almost) always Sean...  ;D 

Most editorial is sold as RF..    what i ment on photoambry..  no images is marked as editorial nor RM  no way for buyer to see that the file is for Editorial usage only.

I would not worry. You have just taken and supplied the image. It is the buyer's responsibility as to how they use the image. Back in the pre -internet days we didn't stamp "editorial use only" over the back of prints when mailing them out to interested buyers. What is a bit more concerning to me, having just checked the site, is that all my editorial images state "yes" for both property and model release. Believe it or not, Prime Minister  Margaret Thatcher (or any other celeb) have never signed a model release form for me. I'll check this one out with Yay and see what they say. Regards, David.

Hi!

I understand your concern, and as you say -  Photoambry are not marking the editorial images with the right license. We have talked with them, and all editorial images will be removed.

Because of the more complex licensing of editorial images we have decided to not sell editorial images through our API. We have taken steps to remove them from our API, but this will take some time. There is no need for you to remove your portfolio from the API, as we'll make sure to remove all editorial images.

As for any legal concern - this is solely Photoambrys responsibility. You and YAY have given them the proper legal information regarding the image, and will not be held responsible. To avoid any complications we monitor the sales to see if any editorial images are sold. Hopefully this issue will be solved within a few days.

Being one of the first API-partners added there will be some mistakes. On the bright side, this helps us avoid doing the same mistakes with larger partners! This fall we'll be up and running with Age, ImagineChina and several other agencies.

Cheers,

Linda :)
