    Re: To my dismay, one of my works has been stolen.

    I wonder though about registering after the theft, and concurrently suing.

    Image theft for me has been handled with a DMCA Takedown Notice. This is of course only for online/digital theft, not print/sale. I have not had that issue (that I know of).

    not sure about registering after the theft / after it has been published ( legally or illegally ) ... there is a space
    on the olde form for previously published so i think you can ( or used to be able to ) ...
    i do know for a few extra dollars you can "rush register" images, so instead of the typical 6 or 7 weeks it takes a few.

    i've attached the old "Form VA" which is pretty self explanatory / has instructions ... i'm guessing the new one is very similar

    I find it troubling that anyone in this group would offer what is essentially permission to steal and misuse intellectual property in this manner. To suggest: "hey, this is how the Internet works, so get over it" is only contributing to a culture of theft.

    We must consider that every copyright challenge accepted is considered by a court and treated as a unique case. This does not mean that precedent is not important, but it does mean it assures no guarantee. I am not a lawyer. I did study law as a kid but all I gained was a profound respect for intellectual property law. Allow me to introduce the most inspiring and terrifying scholar of law, University of Chicago Law School long ago. Photo here (by me).

    Absolutely! Anyway, all this pertains to USA law, which I guess doesn't help the OP. I wonder if we'll hear from him again.

    It may be of little solace to the OP, but the images he links to are very good examples of how monochrome images are far more dramatic than panchromatic similar. An understandable theft.
