Mesh TOS violation?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone, As a firm believer in playing by the rules when it comes to mesh/copyright to ensure the market is fair for all content creators and having come across products on the marketplace that are blatant replicas of real celebrities and such, which I am sure this is a violation according to the mesh registration, or am I incorrect? What should I do about it? I do try to flag as many copybotted and violating products as possible to help but I am unsure of what category to flag such products as, such as this, angelina jolie :)

Blatant? Vaguely resemblant maybe (and clumsily done in my opinion). There is a looooong way to go before it is actually blatant. If flagging this kind of stuff is your pastime, go ahead. Chances are good that this will be ignored. Plus, I do not see Angelina Jolie's name anywhere in these items descriptions.

Self promoted sherrifs and peeps telling me they always play by the rules ....

Anyway they must use copyrighted names or parts that look exactly like copyrighted material.

In this case none of both so you better move on for the next.

HELL! Angelina Jolie doesn't look like Angelina Jolie most of the time.

If something is being marketed as a celebrity likeness that would clearly be unethical, but something that bears a passing resemblance without mentioning any names should be fine. Please note, I am not lawyer.

Wow, there was certainly no need for the brash replies, thanks to those who gave a polite reply though, that's all I needed to know
:)

If I sounded harsh, I sincerely apologize, Petal. It was not intentional. :)

However, maybe you could flag the item for a blatant replica of the Omega watches logo! :D... Nah, kidding!!!

FRENCH? This is an English language forum. Images like that should be in the French subforum.

This is the Mesh forum. :smileywink:   English, French, Spanish, German, whatever are welcome as long as the topic is mesh.

That, and I've not read that only the Queen's English is allowed.

But it is indeed and it never ceases to amaze me that even some of the most notable participants in our discourses fail to observe this rule.

Contextual utilization of colourful and colonial terminology and grammar is acceptable, either to emphasize specific argument or to strengthen our forum's relaxed and casual general atmosphere, but should always be placed within quotation marks and, if appropriate, be immediately succeeded by a relevant emoticon.
