Image License Validation for Agence France-Presse – Reference Number: 3959-2637-3720

Dear Business Owner,

As an introduction, PicRights Ltd. (“PicRights”) provides licensing compliance services to third-party content owners, including Agence France-Presse. Please note that PicRights is not a law firm and I am not a lawyer. PicRights has noticed that imagery represented by Agence France-Presse has been displayed on your website. Agence France-Presse has been unable to find a license for this usage of the imagery by your company. Therefore we are acting on behalf of Agence France-Presse to obtain compensation for your unauthorized past use of their imagery.

At the end of this message, we’ve attached a visual reference of the imagery and its use on your website.

Our goal in contacting you is to ascertain if you hold an active license for this use with Agence France-Presse or with any other entity authorized by Agence France-Presse to license and distribute the imagery:

  • If you do have an active license for the use of this imagery, we kindly ask you to send us your valid license / authorization, by visiting https://resolve.picrights.com/395926373720 and clicking the “I have a license…” link; or
  • If you do not have an active license for the use of this imagery, we request that you remove the imagery from your website.
  • Please be aware that removal of the imagery alone will not resolve this issue. We also require payment of compensation in the amount of $948.00 for the past unauthorized usage of the imagery.
  • Please contact us to resolve this matter at +1 888 367 7778 or resolve@picrights.com or by visiting: https://resolve.picrights.com/395926373720.

We would like to resolve this time-sensitive issue as soon as possible and request that you respond within 14 days from the date of this correspondence.

If you believe you have received this notice in error or have questions, please contact us with your reference number 3959-2637-3720 at +1 888 367 7778 or resolve@picrights.com.

On behalf of PicRights and Agence France-Presse, we thank you for your cooperation and look forward to assisting you in resolving this matter.

Sincerely,

Geoff Beal
