What do we do?

Intellectual Property Protection helps photographers and photographic agencies enforce their copyright, ensuring lost license fees are recovered from the unlawful use of their work.

If you discover your work being used without your permission we will examine the merits of your case and, using our years of expertise, attempt to recover the license fees you are entitled to. In many cases our recovery far exceeds the amount of the actual damages.

Investigate

We will collate evidence to build a case against the infringer, ensuring evidence is archived, indexed, dated and annotated to determine beyond doubt that an infringement of your copyrighted work has occurred.

Negotiate

We deal with the infringers and recover your lost license fees leaving you to concentrate on what you do best - your photography!

No need to worry about confrontation or difficult conversations - we will handle all the communication on your behalf.

No win, No Fee!

We do not charge an upfront fee for our service. We simply retain a percentage of any successful recovery.

A national newspaper stole my image. The advice given by IP Protection meant that my case was settled quickly, the infringer obviously could see I knew my rights.

When a photo I took was printed and distributed by a leading supermarket chain I knew it wasn’t right but their legal department made it a scary process to pursue. IP Protection made responding to them nice and simple. Within just a few hours and thanks to IPP’s in-depth knowledge of copyright, I was offered a settlement twice my expectation and over 8 times the original offer, which I was more than happy to accept!

IP Protection has given me invaluable help and advise on several copyright disputes and all were happily resolved with settlement thanks to their professional guidance. Their knowledge of licensing and copyright led to a very successful settlement with a major corporate client allowing me to keep the moral high ground, receive a satisfactory payment and retain the client into the future. It is good to know there is someone like IPP defending the rights of all professional photographers.
