“Shortly after starting to work with LAPIXA, they discovered the intellectual property theft of one of my images through a big brand, which LAPIXA addressed and negotiated. Their dedication and extremely friendly service got me an easy €8,000 at no extra effort.“

The Legal Process – Behind-the-Scenes

Submission


Once you’ve verified a Match is of a photo that is being used without your permission – not licensed from you, not being used through a friend, not from a past collaboration etc. – you’ve got a Case! Just submit with one click and our legal team will seek compensation on your behalf. If you aren’t sure if the photo was licensed from you, our team will help you figure it out.

Review


Once a Case is submitted, we personally review each one to determine whether it can be pursued. The legality of the image use is based on a few parameters. We then reconfirm the photo is yours and kick off an investigation to discover if an image is fair use or user-submitted content. LAPIXA closes the Case if either are found to be true.

Documentation


All verified image infringement cases are accepted! Accepted cases are documented to create a record of the copyright violation. Sometimes websites and companies remove photos in an effort to dispose of evidence and avoid payment. Our documentation is necessary because it renders such actions moot.

Negotiations


Once the documentation is complete, LAPIXA contacts the infringer and enters negotiations to reach a settlement befitting both parties. Please bear in mind that although we pride ourselves and focus on expediency, this is still a legal process – one that can take up to a few months if any party is especially difficult.

Resolution


LAPIXA reaches an agreement with the infringer! All users need to make sure the payment and bank account details entered during their first Case submission are accurate. We want to be positive LAPIXA deposits your portion of the settlement into the correct account!
