Are all of the pictures on your instagram page yours? If not, did you pay/give credit to the originals?How would you go about combating this? I've been struggling with this for years. I'll post something on my Instagram and then see it popping up on a DJ's Instagram a day or so later with my logo cropped out and not even any credit left. I don't want to burn bridges with potential clients (I work a lot for festivals where these DJs play) but want my work to be recognised.
Today I've noted a DJ "Axwell" (and his team) has lifted my photo from my Instagram page and re-posted it at his own without any form credit or payment.
His post: https://www.instagram.com/p/BU37VQxDa-i/
My post: Alex 'Lonz' Lonsdale on Instagram: “Λ”
It's a tricky situation to play. Currently a group of friends will comment publicly to try and name and shame them into action, but this is normally well after the image is first posted and any potential publicity is lost. Any suggestions?
Also, that same image is all over the web. Are all these you?
