I spoke with Music, Sports and Entertainment industry photographer Pat Johnson of Pat Johnson Photography, and to say the least, he was completely blown away, “Wow, I’M IN, a product this powerful is a must for all professional photographers, definitely count me in.” Mr. Johnson was the recent recipient of the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD by the Los Angeles Music Award Show for his fabulous career capturing musicians and performers for more than 40 years. He also received a CERTIFICATE of Honor & Service by San Francisco’s newly elected Mayor London Breed.
The service is free, and as a COPYTRACK user you will receive a payment when your images are found by the system to have copyright infringement and COPYTRACK is able to collect infringement recovery fees. Only then will you be obligated to pay a portion of the fees generated to COPYTRACK when and if collected. According to their website the average amount collected was $1,675. Following a strict “No win, no fee” policy, the whole process is completely risk-free for customers. COPYTRACK will track your images with its proprietary “Reverse Image Search Engine Technology,” which has a 98% accuracy of finding image duplicates on the Internet.
According to data they published in 2017 it shows the U.S. ranking third behind China and France as chief countries where image copyright infringement occurred. Thirty-five percent of cases COPYTRACK sent letters to paid up. And a resounding 55 percent only made payments when a claim was filed in court.

COPYTRACK recently announced an Infringement Rights Deal with a major news content provider, the WENN Media Group (WMG) will use the COPYTRACK SAAS product to exclusively track their huge library of images on the Internet. The WMG Chairman and acting CEO Lloyd Beiny said, “We are delighted to pledge our 30-year-old photo archive, which encompasses over 10 million images, to COPYTRACK, whose record of ensuring copyright owners are compensated for infringements of their IP is most impressive and, in my opinion, the very best service in the business. As the online digital world matures, the number of infringement incidents has increased exponentially. Photo assets owners need to demonstrably take a stand to curb this unlawful practice and ensure photographers and their agents are properly remunerated from those whose intent is to devalue our copyrights.”
