Now you can know who is publishing your desings or images without permission in a simple and efficient way.
You only need a Chrome browser (by now it doesn’t work with others) and Google image search.
Open two windows: one with the photography you want to look for, and the other one with the searcher.
Drag the image to the searcher bar and… voilà!
And remember that in order to report your rights and have a proof of authorship, you have the on-line intellectual property registry of Safe Creative.

Now you can register your works in the U.S. Copyright Office, easily from your Safe Creative account.
All copyright registrations are filed on your behalf, in your name and are issued directly to you.
With Safe Creative you can manage all information, security and self-management of copyright of your works from a single service.
U.S. citizens are required to register before filing a lawsuit for copyright infringement. If a work is registered either before the infringement takes place or within 3 months of publication then, in the U.S., the copyright holder is eligible for both statutory damages, which can reach $150,000 per infringement, and attorney’s fees. Even though non-citizens can sue for for copyright infringement in the U.S. without a registration being filed, they are only able to claim actual damages, which is the greater of what the copyright holder lost or the infringer gained from the use of the work. In many cases that amount is effectively zero. So if you might ever have cause to sue in the U.S. you should register your work in a timely manner so that you have all of your rights at your disposal.
Safe Creative charges a modest service fee ($25) plus the cost of the copyright office filing fee of $35,
but the free account includes a registration service for free (only office filing fee), the premium account offers 3 free register operations per year, and the professional account: 6
Update 21st February 2012 10:00 UTC: US Copyright Office registration is now available for professional and corporate accounts. Professional accounts have a special offer of 3 free of Safe Creative’s fee registrations, and corporate accounts have an offer of 6 such registrations.*

A user’s identification level shows the information wich has been included in his profile.
To confirm their identity as creator or copyrights owner of the registered works.
There are four identification levels, and from one week ago to confirm a user’s identity who has lost his mail account, we have included address and phone number fields as necessary to reach level 2.
The levels are:
Level 1: Validity and user access to the provided e-mail account has been confirmed.
Level 2: The user as well as his e-mail account, has provided contact information such as address and phone number.
Level 3: The user logs in Safe Creative using a digital certificate issued by a company (at this moment Verisign).
Level 4: The user logs in Safe Creative using a digital certificate issued by a Public Administration (at this moment: Spanish electronic identity card and FNMT digital certificate)
Providing the highest identification level is important not only to make a rigorous authorship proof, but also to be able to provide you access to your account in case you lose your e-mail account.
