Myows Review: Professional Photographer easily removes stolen images

On 08.07.14, in General, Reviews

photo-copyright-protectionI always start pitching investors by telling the story of how the Myows idea came to life: In 2008 I was working as a photographer and wanted to start my own imagebank with 20 000 lifestyle images I’d taken. I was already using Freshbooks for invoicing and BaseCamp for project management, yet I couldn’t find an online solution that would help me protect my copyright in an easy way, so I decided to create one to meet my needs: I called it Myows and with the help of 3 partners we launched to great acclaim in 2009.

Does Myows work to protect copyright?

The answer is yes, and please take a minute to read this testimonial from a Myows user, a Professional Nature Photographer that successfully got infringing images removed from Corbis and other websites by using our solution:

Testimonial from Marcus Armani of Armani Nature Photography:

I would like to thank the staff at MYows.com, I have had several Images stolen from my personal website and posted on various photography sites , for sale, for wallpaper, for display claiming they were the photographer and copyright holder.

I did not know what to do and at a point it seemed hopeless. I then came across the MYows website, A site in which I have never seen before so I thought I would try it out. what they do is amazing and so very easy, you only need to upload your original image to the site, From then on your work is safe!

I had my first copyright case against Corbis images , they had one of my photos on their site for sale, I went to MYows website where I only had to click on the photo in question open a case and click send a Cease and Desist order which was pre made from the information I entered when uploading the photo, within 48 hours I received an email from Corbis Images a company who previously had ignored my emails phone calls etc.. This email stated that they would remove my photo and in a few hours it was off their site! (more…)
