Copyright

Product images - Copy & Paste unwelcome

Copyright protects owners from unauthorized use of their intellectual property. If a person or a company has created an original work (e.g. a photograph) or has acquired the exclusive right of use, he or she may determine solely who uses the work and how it is used. The protection of copyright complements trademark protection on the online marketplaces. You can use copyright to ensure that, for example, your product photos are not simply used by unauthorized sellers as a "lure" and may mislead the buyer.

The problem with the pictures

Unfortunately, it happens again and again that unlicensed dealers on online marketplaces use unauthorized copyrighted photographs. These can be, for example, product images as well as high-quality campaign images. The retailers use these pictures to give their appearance seriousness and to improve the online appearance supposedly free of charge.
