Permission Machine offers image copyright owners a service that enables you to be compensated for the illegal use of your images. At no cost to you.

Our combination of proprietary state-of-the art tracking technology, manual checks and legal partnerships guarantees the quality of each case, resulting in a higher success rate. And we resolve your copyright infringements ethically.

What We Offer You

Image Search

PM’s reverse image tracking technology can scan and match your entire archive online , even cropped, mirrored and retouched images. Whether your collection is ten thousand or ten million images, we have unlimited capability. You can start by sending us a sample of your imagery and we’ll provide you with a free detailed report.


PM filters your results to your specifications and our high standards. We combine intelligent automated processes with a dedicated human touch. We manually check the automated search results, filter out mismatches, and flag established companies and commercial websites. We also QA the results by removing matches that cannot be used such as Pinterest or private blogs.

Customized Reporting

After we’ve scanned your images you’ll receive a link to your results on our user-friendly dashboard. You’ll be able to see where your images are being used at a glance and designate whether the usage is licensed or not. We regularly rescan your archive to determine other possible infringements.

New Revenues

Working with Permission Machine helps you protect your assets, recover lost royalties and generate a new and stable income stream. Because we regularly scan for new infringements you are able to continually receive licensing fees from infringers using your content illegally. Outsource policing your images to us so you can focus on what you’re good at: being creative. You’ll save time and effort and get the money you’re rightfully owed.

Happy Clients

“I chose Permission Machine because of their reputation and experience in the field. What I love about them and the experience to date is: they're professional with reasonable expectations of collections and above all, they're fair - to me and to the company who used my images without approval.”
