Once an infringer realizes that you have discovered the infringement, the infringer will try to get rid of its evidence. You likely will need that information later. Fortunately, you can take several steps to gather evidence of the infringement.

Check the tips at Using Internet Tools to Gather Evidence of an Infringement, Part 1, and Using Internet Tools to Gather Evidence of an Infringement – Part 2 for a list of ways to collect the evidence.

As mentioned in Part 1 of the blog posts above, the WayBack Machine at archive.org may have archived the infringer’s web page where the infringer posted your image. But if it hasn’t, you now can request that the WayBack Machine:

“Capture a web page as it appears now for use as a trusted citation in the future.”

Specifically, go to www.archive.org/web.  In the bottom right hand of the page, enter the url that you want to save in the box provided.  Note that the WayBack Machine can’t grab a webpage that doesn’t allow web crawlers.

I go to the site and do a Save As for the page with the stolen image. That way I have the proof on my computer. I don't like relying on another site to acquire/ store evidence when it comes to legal matters.

Have Fun,

It's a good article, especially for someone who hasn't experienced this before. Unfortunately, I know all of this due to past thieves infringing on my copyright.

I go to the site and do a Save As for the page with the stolen image. That way I have the proof on my computer. I don't like relying on another site to acquire/store evidence when it comes to legal matters. But the Wayback site has come in handy on several occasions.

Have Fun,

Jeff,

It's good to all of that, as archive.org is an independent source for the evidence.
