You’ve just launched your new website or blog and you´ve published images to go along with your great content - Only to be notified that you’ve possibly infringed on somebody else’s copyrights, potentially facing legal action.
There is no way around it - the copyright holder has a case against you and is seeking reward for his ideas. It usually goes like this:
About 70% of infringement cases are settled in court?
80% of costs accrued during a licensing dispute are going to lawyers and technical providers, with the actual copyright holders only receiving 20%?
65% of Infringers are more likely to comply if they are offered a simple way to licence images?
