NEW YORK & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orangenius (www.orangenius.com), a New York-based technology startup that offers a revolutionary online business and collaborative community for artists and creatives to show and share work, has partnered with ImageRights International to develop a program to protect the intellectual property of visual artists. ImageRights International is a Boston-based company that provides image search and copyright enforcement services to photographers and agencies worldwide.
The two companies will offer quick and easy online registration with the U.S. Copyright Office, content search, and copyright enforcement services to solve one of the creative industry’s most pressing issues -- protecting artists’ intellectual property.
Through its in-house license compliance team and global network of legal partners, ImageRights negotiates copyright infringement cases via direct settlement or court proceedings, as necessary, without its clients bearing any of the upfront costs or financial risks of pursuing claims.
In addition to copyright enforcement services, ImageRights is the only company to have fully automated copyright registration with the U.S. Copyright Office. This allows for copyright enforcement to be a truly integrated component of an artist’s daily workflow, ensuring all artists protect the full value of their work under U.S. Copyright law.
“When artists subscribe to Orangenius, they are entrusting us with their best work,” said Orangenius founder Grace Cho. “Honoring this trust, we did not want to leave our members open to risk of their images being stolen. By partnering with ImageRights, we’re excited to be able to offer our members this protection.”
Through the partnership with ImageRights, Orangenius members can upload and create a public record of their copyright ownership in their works with the U.S. Copyright Office. Similarly, ImageRights photographers looking to grow their business will have the opportunity to leverage Orangenius’ visual resume building tools and access to new revenue opportunities.
A platform created for artists, by artists, Orangenius was designed to put control back into creators’ hands. An online platform and collaborative community for creatives, Orangenius users can show and share their work with online portfolios and 'visual' resumes, give and get credit for collaborative projects, find and apply to art world jobs, open calls, creative gigs, and more.
