Copyright Tracking with fairlicensing.com: Stop chasing, start selling

Many agencies sense that there must be a better way of dealing with copyright infringements. They know that the vast majority of infringements happen unintentionally and that sending a third party after an infringer is often a disproportionate response that leaves no room to develop a fruitful business relationship with the image user ever again.

Learn how fairlicensing.com enables agencies to in-source the interaction with copyright infringers and resolve cases effectively by turning them into customers. Stop chasing, start selling.
