The photography licensing market is becoming more and more competitive, and you and your team have to work harder and harder to reach your revenue goals. At the same time copyright violators are using your content “for free”.

You feel that infringers should be paying for your pictures but you fear that going after them will damage your reputation.

We help your agency to develop a sustainable copyright enforcement business model that is in line with your brand and values and that will contribute to your EBIT in a lasting, predictable way.

A selection of agencies we are proud to serve as our customers


PIXRAY Copyright Management is a user-friendly and convenient system that covers the full range from discovering an infringement to collecting payments in a hassle-free way.

PIXRAY Copyright Management continually searches the web for your pictures. Automatic self-learning whitelists can be applied to filter out findings on your own website or on customers’ websites. When a usage appears to be unauthorized you can create a case directly in your PIXRAY account. PIXRAY experts then compile all necessary case documentation and – if applicable – assist you in calculating the damages.

You may then send the case to your own sales team for post-licensing or assign it to one of our legal or collection partners attached to your account. The legal and collection partners work on your behalf and process the cases in close coordination with you. The case processing status is always fully transparent to you and payments received are reported directly in the PIXRAY Copyright Management System.

The first thing you’ll realize: PIXRAY is high-tech built around your needs.

“PIXRAY simply delivers: world-class technology, unrivaled customer service and an approach based on partnership. Switching our copyright tracking to PIXRAY was the best possible decision for us.”

Keeping an eye on the web is a massive challenge that requires massive technology. PIXRAY’s Copyright Management service crawls hundreds of millions of web pages every day and scans them for your images. We do that by visually scanning the photos used on those web pages. To start, we only need your pictures. We find all manipulations of your images, for example resizing, cropping, color-changes, logos added, collages created, photos printed on t-shirts, etc. While our algorithms find nearly all variations of your images you will hardly ever see false findings that were not derived from your originals.


Getting started is easy. Talk to one of our sales representatives today and find the right product configuration for you. You will be assigned your personal customer success consultant who will guide you through the initial setup and will introduce you and your team to the system through an online demo. Your customer success consultant will be your personal point of contact and will help you in your day-to-day work with the Copyright Management System.
