TinEye private investigator

John Arrington’s review of TinEye just landed in my inbox forwarded by a colleague and that would have been just an awesome read if I had not woken up this morning to TinEye being down! We are in the office, getting rolling on bringing it back, the team is being hawled out of bed as we speak (happy Sunday!). There is no rest for the wicked! This is the first down time we have experienced so I am sure we will learn a few things. We will keep you posted as things progress.

I am sorry that John’s searches were successful in unearthing a couple of copyright violations but I am happy that he finally had a chance to play with it and his thumbs up in the form of this compliment: “All around impressive” keeps us warm as we battle the server gremlins.

I’m in the beta and I think it’s great. Again, I’ve already found several copyright violations (sigh…).

Are you planning on offering a service where tineye could crawl a photo publisher’s site and the give them a report on uses elsewhere? Right now, I’m just guessing which of our 6000+ celebrity photos are being stolen then using the Tineye Firefox extension to check.

Thanks for a great service!

TinEye seems to be very interesting!
