Professional Photographers of America and Pixsy Join Forces to Protect Photographers’ Rights

Atlanta, GA - Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Pixsy are partnering to help photographers protect their work from copyright infringement. PPA members can now access Pixsy’s exclusive software and legal expertise to monitor, prevent, and fight against the unauthorized use of their images, all at a special discounted price.  

Both Pixsy and the PPA believe in protecting the rights of visual creators and upholding the integrity of the photographic industry. As a nonprofit, PPA empowers photographers through education, business resources, and copyright advocacy. Earlier this year, the organization helped pass the CASE Act, which establishes a small claims process for visual creators whose work has been misused.

“This new partnership reflects PPA’s commitment to helping photographers grow sustainable businesses,” Kristen Hartman, PPA’s Director of Membership, said. “Ensuring our members have control over their creative work is central to that mission, and Pixsy’s software and services help photographers do just that.”  

Pixsy CEO Kain Jones echoed this message. “At Pixsy, we believe that the enforcement of legal rights should not be reserved for the few but instead be accessible to any photographer in need of support,” Jones said. “Since our inception in 2014, we have kept to this belief, and to date, we have tackled over 100,000 copyright infringement cases across the globe. Each day, we monitor and protect over 100 million photos for our 85,000 members.”

PPA photographers now have that same access to image monitoring, takedown notices, case submission, and copyright registrations at an affordable price. “Our range of services helps equip creatives with the tools to recover lost licensing revenue and damages, including an extensive network of international law partners and integration with the US Copyright Office,” Jones said.

Photographers spend countless hours editing, publishing, and promoting their work, but image theft can impact even the most experienced of photographers. Thanks to this partnership, PPA members can utilize Pixsy’s suite of tools to better protect the value and integrity of their work online. Visit for more details.
