COPYTRACK has announced that they've entered into an agreement to represent Wenn Media Group's (WMG) global post-licensing infringement rights worldwide. 

This is a match made in heaven of two giants of their respective industries. COPYTRACK has made a name for themselves by tirelessly going after copyright infringement for photographers worldwide. What makes them unique is a combination of their proprietary "Reverse Image Search Engine Technology," and their "no win no fee" policy. 

That's right, if you have a photo that you posted online and someone takes it and monetizes it without your permission, instead of paying hefty lawyer fees, COPYTRACK will use there proprietary "Reverse Image Search Engine Technology," which according to them "has a 98% accuracy of finding image duplicates on the Internet." If there is a settlement or judgment against the accused, then COPYTRACK will simply take a cut of the winnings. It will literally cost you nothing to use it. It's a genius solution to a problem that plagues artists every day since the start of the internet. 

For the last thirty years, WENN media group (WMG) has been a powerhouse content provider to the world's entertainment media outlets. They've amassed over 10 million photographs of celebrities, and events, and those photos that they paid for are constantly being stolen. 

This partnership makes financial sense as well. If you can hire someone to scour the internet for your photos to find duplicates for free, why wouldn't you?
