LAPIXA: Your recommendation for other photographers?
Andreas Riedmiller: The temptation to use images unauthorized is huge. LAPIXA takes over the rights clearance and makes sure that elaborately produced image is re-licensed. LAPIXA gives me a good overview and allows me to see how many images from my blog are used illegally on the web.
LAPIXA: Concluding Words?
Andreas Riedmiller: If digital value creation is not recognized on the Internet, creative work loses its value and appropriate remuneration is lost.
