With the rise of social media platforms and smartphone photography, the volume of imagery available online has grown to a staggering size—on Facebook alone, 350 million photographs are uploaded each day.
Due to the ready access to a massive pool of content on the internet, online theft of imagery is rampant—an overwhelming 85% of online image use is done without permission, of which many are shared without attribution to the rightful source.
IMGembed has produced a white paper that analyzes this digital age problem. The report also offers a comparison between past and present image acquisition models, and provides a closer look at how the platform's proprietary technology benefits both image owners and publishers.
