All my questions
We wish to support you with complete transparency
The Pictia certificate of authenticity is composed of the following elements:
- Computer print of the image
- Your identity information (public and private)
- Metadata extracted from the image
- Originality information of the work (optional)
- Computer print signed by Pictia and anchored in a blockchain of all the above information
- Proof of registration of this certificate in a blockchain.
Please be aware that your private data on your certificate will remain private with the buyers or in the event of a dispute.
You can have all your images certified and send them to Pictia, even those you took a long time ago. For a image that has been taken with a digital camera we extract its metadata, in which the date of the shot can be found. For a image made with a silver camera of which you have a copy on a digital file, you can add by hand in a field of the certificate the date of the shooting.
Thanks to the annual formula, you can send thousands of images at once if you wish. To do this, we have integrated the sending by secure FTP transfer.
If you have a larger image base, or if you want a larger number of image for which we detect fraudulent use, it's possible! Whether you are a photographer, an agency, or even an institution, you can send us your request at any time by email ([email protected]), or by phone (06 79 96 46 84).
The price, for a buyer, of an unlimited edition license, is 50 euros excl tax. From this, Pictia takes 17% commission.
You can choose to make limited editions of your images, from 20 to 1 single copy. This will be mentioned in its certificate of authenticity, which you will deliver to the buyer. You can choose to sell these editions via Pictia at different prices than the unlimited editions.
If the buyer integrates your image into his site with the Pictia module, he has the right to use it for life. If he integrates it without the Pictia module, he has the right to use it for 1 year.
He can integrate it on several websites.
Our objective: that your images are shared on the internet with the protection and sales module. This offers you a potential for recurring income and also increases your notoriety. This is why the license conditions are more flexible if the buyer uses your image on his website with the module.
The amount of the damage claimed from the fraudster will be communicated to you in a transparent manner before any action is taken.
Please note that Pictia undertakes not to accept negotiations beyond 10% of the requested amount. And this if only the fraudster brings us tangible elements to his situation.
You are free to choose litigation as soon as your image used illegally on a website without going through Pictia's handling litigation. You benefit from advantageous rates with the law firm Yellaw, or you can choose your own firm. You can then buy the evidence report we have compiled. That way all the odds will be in your favor.
The evidence report that we constitute is composed as follows:
- Certificate of authenticity of your image
- Hash of the screenshot of the website in fraud
- Hash of the html code of the website
- Hash of the image found on the website
- Information (whois) of the domain name
- Webarchive link of this website
Everything is archived on a blockchain.
The evidence is taken automatically when you report the fraudulent use of your image. Even before the fraudster receives the request for litigation.
The evidence report is at the price of 50 euros (excluding taxes). It will allow you to put all your chances on your side for the litigation. Our goal: that nothing can be contested.
