Telephone token images used without permission
« on: May 11, 2019, 08:36:31 AM »
I saw here where coins are being used on Zeno without permission, the same thing has been happening with tokens elsewhere.

I had already noticed recently that colnect has used many images of Telephone tokens taken from WoT - to name but one group of tokens! other types have not been checked.

Colnect has no contact address, so the only way to complain is to register and use their forums. I would post the same text on different boards, as there is no designated board for complaints. Please do complain there and keep us informed.

If they would have asked or even if they would have posted a source, I am sure there would have been co-operation. As it is, let them remove the pictures posted without permission, so we can talk. I see no need for a picture-war, but I also think people who post pictures should not be discouraged by picture piracy. Let me know if you need help.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Colnect demands people who claim Colnect has infringed their copyrights to for every image provide the following data:

Quote
* Creation type
​* Name, id number and full mailing address of the person claiming to have copyrights over the creation.
​* The date when the creation was created and the method that was used to create it.
​* Declaration of the person claiming to have copyrights stating he/she is holding the copyrights of the creation. This declaration should be signed and the signature verified by a lawyer.
​* Link to the page on Colnect where the creation is seen.

​In addition, if the claim refers to a picture please include:
​* Direct link to the image itself on Colnect
​* The original image file (without processing)

If you no longer have one of the required informations they refuse to take the image down. Criminal practices of this Amir.

A notice and takedown procedure at their hosting provider Godaddy is the only option.

At least that gives you an address for complaints.

I had already contacted colnect before reading these later posts.  Fortunately all images in question do have the tag.

I wrote: Copyright images have been taken from World of Tokens and published on your site.

Compare your page here: United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland : Tokens [Series: Telephone

with our page here: General Post Office - World of Tokens

Hope to have a reply from you promptly.

I received acknowledgement.
     We have received your message and will shortly reply.

Update: it took some doing, but Colnect has started to remove copied material. I will wait and see, but am encouraged.

No confirmation from colnect has been received as yet but a view their site shows all of our token images have been removed from their pages.
