TinEye Image Search Finds Copyright Infringers — Search Engine Images — InformationWeek

What makes the service particularly compelling is that it can spot copied or derivative images that have been substantially modified.

TinEye, a new image search engine that specializes in image identification and comparison, on Monday entered open beta testing.

Developed by Idee, a Toronto, Canada-based imaging technology company, TinEye allows users to submit an image and find copies or derivative images online. Idee provides a similar service called PixID that offers automated image monitoring for print and online publishers.

Leila Boujnane, CEO of Idee, said that TinEye has developed a following of enthusiasts among professional creators of visual content and online designers. “Most people who actually hold a copyright to an image would like to make sure that the image is used within the copyright requirements,” she said.

Some users want to know whether their work is being used without authorization. Others want to see whether their design work bears similarities to someone else’s design work, which might be either a positive or negative association.

      Great. TinEye is terrific though they might take a while to register new photos on the web. You need to keep trying new pics.
