Chinese hair factories stealing photos

Post by dreadviolet » Sat Mar 05, 2011 9:51 am

Yesterday I was google searching something completely different, not even related to fake hair... then I found something, did another random search... and oh, what did I found.

Chinese hair factories are stealing photos!
I found for example this one factory using our KK photos, our visible watermarks cropped off and alibaba -watermarks on top of them:
http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/34943 ... _hair.html
http://yzrsdhair.en.alibaba.com/product ... _hair.html
http://yzrsdhair.en.alibaba.com/product ... braid.html

There are several funny things in this
- They are selling Lexy brand
- My photos are from Bng, LA Trend, WigsDeKing and Jazzy - and the brands are showing in those photos! :roll:
- As far as I know, Lexy brand hair doesn't even look like the hair in these photos, isn't Lexy shiny textured hair?
- They're using photo with PurpleUV - is anyone in the world even making that shade anymore?? At least none is selling it, right?
- There is still the "invisible" huge size watermark left. I did that just because of these cases.

Well. I guess these factories are really not interested about copyright laws. :?
Although, I think these other brands might (?) be interested in their products being used...?

That's what I thought too. Should be flattered then, I guess. :(

You might be able to get the images removed if you complain directly to Alibaba.

Yeah that's pretty much it, the factories work for the western bosses by day and the Chinese bosses by night over there.
