CHAPTER PREVIEWS

Photo Repo is designed to teach photographers how to ask for a reasonable fee for unauthorized use of their photographs before handing the matter over to an attorney who is really going to turn up the heat. This information is based on my experience of pursuing copyright violations for three years, over which time I have collected on 61% of viable infringements, ranging from 44% the first time out ($5,000) to 80% in my most recent effort ($15,000).
