Re: Someone on eBay is stealing member photos to sell as fridge magnets


Another website to watch out for is Zazzle for stuff like this. You can, if you're a decent artist or photographer, make your own products by uploading images and creating them on their website - they then handle the manufacturing process and you get some loyalties for the images used when people buy things. Sadly, I've seen many a time people stealing images and putting them in their own shop, some of which are quite noticeable because they're everywhere on the web if you do a Google search for them, others are stolen from artists, and some even make counter-fit merchandise for "popular movies", etc such as Twilight. It is really sad on the people who do a lot of hard work on making their own products with things they've created themselves when I see it, and more fool to the people who actually buy them because they must know when well-known images that are used, or when it's a trade marked name (and isn't endorsed by the company who officially publish the movie, etc) that the items are fake/stolen copyright, etc. I even once informed an artist that someone was using her art on there and I think for artists the only way to ensure that people don't steal your art is to have an account on there.

I would be curious to know how the seller made the fridge magnets.
