mediates in copyright infringements
A picture is worth a thousand words.
That’s why we love to share and publish them so much. But images also represent income for photographers and other creative minds, and are therefore protected by copyright. Copyright ensures that creators can be properly compensated for their work. And that’s where Permission Machine comes in.
Headquartered in Belgium, Permission Machine is active worldwide and falls under the supervision of Belgium’s Directorate General of the Economic Inspectorate. Using a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and quality controls, our team of experts tracks our clients’ visual material online. While most websites license their visual material correctly, copyright can sometimes be forgotten. If this is the case, you may stumble into a dispute with a photographer who expects compensation for the use of their work.
When a photographer indicates that the use of an image isn’t permitted, Permission Machine’s legal specialists take an in-depth look at the matter and assess whether a copyright infringement has occurred. Where they believe that to be the case, they try to reach an amicable settlement for the dispute.
