Tracking Sale Destinations

In another stock site, one can see who bought ones photos. I wish we had that here.

Would it be of any use if we knew who was using our images?

It would be nice to know, though, I found many of mine surfing on the net and in some magazines.

I have one image that was purchased and then edited which makes it unique. THAT image has been stolen by a number of other web sites. It would be nice to know who purchased because then I would know the rest stole the image.

Very rare situation though.

Never thought about tracing my images... until now. How you can do that?!
Does Google images search can accomplish the task?

I think the reason for not disclosing identities of buyers is that some contributors would try to contact those buyers direct - and buyers just want to buy images & get on with it, they don't want to discuss the images they've bought or be pestered to buy more!

Of course, that's not to say I wouldn't like to know the identities of those who buy my images ;-)

As most have mentioned at one time or another, it's always nice to know how your images are being used. Maybe just a friendly reminder to buyers each time they complete a project that the photographers like to see the end result of how their work was used.
Canon 50D and assorted lenses.
