DNS Outage at 123-REG

Posted by: Steven Annison

Many of our websites and email are currently experiencing some issues due to a Denial of Service Attack on the 123-REG domain name servers which has originated from China.

123-REG have said that “Due to the nature and size of this attack the firewall systems in place needed to be reconfigured to block the bad traffic and allow the good traffic through. Our 24/7 network team picked up on this straight away and started to make changes to bring services back online to the Internet“.

They added “Things may be a little slow over the next hour or so as we continue to configure the systems to effectively stop the attack. Thankfully, as the largest UK hosting provider, 123-reg has the data centre and team in place to combat these Internet criminals with minimal damage“.

We would hope things will return to normal throughout the afternoon.  For live updates you can also check 123-REG's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/123regfans

Copyright Infringement

Posted by: Steven Annison

In working with Fair Trade Gifts Direct we came across two competing websites that had copied photographs we had taken during a recent photo shoot and this raised the question of how UK copyright law applies to the internet - particularly where sites could be hosted internationally.

Copyright is owned by the individual/company taking the picture or producing the artwork, writing etc. Copyright in the UK does not need to be obtained or licenced and copyright exists the moment the work is created.

Our first course of action was to politely contact the websites involved and ask them to remove our pictures. Often pictures are used by designers or graphics teams and forgotten to be replaced so we expected both companies to realise their mistake and simply remove the images. We received an immediate phone call from the first business and the images were removed.

Unfortunately the second business would not take any phone calls and sent a guarded email reply that the images were 'remarkably similar' to theirs but they had paid 'in good faith' for the photographs and would not remove them without proof of ownership. Further searches found they were also using the images on ebay and ebid. After explaining we had the original photographs, offering to show the photographs on our camera and servers and and pointing them to other photos taken in the same style from the same photo shoot we sought some excellent advice from Murgatroyd and Company of London - specialist copyright lawyers.

The course of action they outlined was to ask the company to "Cease and Desist" all use of the works and any associated use of the works with a clear deadline for agreement and removal. Failure to do so would result in all further steps being taken to stop copyright infringement.

This is followed by a legal letter and then court action with associated costs of anything from £5,000 - £15,000 (excluding the time and effort required) - which can be reclaimed if your case is proven. It is clear that there are some unscrupulous site owners who know it is time consuming and costly to pursue copyright infringement so will not remove images when asked. However, ebay has a removal process VeRO, Google adheres to the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and will remove copyright materials from their searches and the hosting company is liable for any copyright infringement on their servers.

We were pleased to see the images finally removed following our formal "Cease and Desist" request, but given images can be copied and pasted with two mouse clicks, we don't think this will be the last time this happens.

With Google going on record to illustrate the importance of unique content to help achieve better search engine ranking, having unique images and content will become more important together with protecting this content.

Some useful tools to help with this:

Image Copying

http://images.google.com

Google images search. Find and hover over your image then click the link "similar".

http://www.tineye.com/

Tineye an image comparison tool which works best with large images, but in this case didn't find the sites using our photographs.
