I really have to thank you for TinEye, I’m a struggling full-time professional nature photographer, and I discovered a European band had used one of my copyrighted images on a commercial album cover using your search engine. The record company was very quick to correct their failure to license my image, which netted me a nice check, and I’ve done some work to try and “get out the word” about the album in question, so I believe it’s worked out well for all involved.

Hi Joe, thanks for sharing your story and thanks for giving TinEye a try. I am sorry to hear that one of your copyrighted image was used without license. But it looks like you and the European band have come to a nice agreement! This is awesome. We are looking forward to growing our image index and continuing to help photographers and visual artists. Please continue sharing your stories with us.
