My Amazon US sales in March 2019

I had three sales on Amazon.com during March 2019, not too bad:

I had ordered three bathroom mats from French Amazon with stolen digital artwork of my Santa Monica Pier altered photo and have now successfully claimed an A to Z satisfaction guarentee! I still have to take photos of the bathmats. Sad to say, the print quality and the overall quality is way better than I would have ever imagined…

Anyway, if you need help how to do this, please let me know. I would be glad to help you via email.

If you are an American you can order your copyright infringing products from Amazon.com and I do think Amazon.ca.

If you are from Germany like me, you can order from Amazon.de, Amazon.fr and Amazon.es – I will try other country platforms, too!

A few days ago, I had written that I will order some copyright infringements from French Amazon to whip someone’s a$$. I have also ordered four doormats from Spanish Amazon and am looking very forward to checking the quality, leaving  reviews and most of all: report them for copyright infringement!

I will keep you updated.

I have had to fight so many copycats on Amazon marketplace all over the world, I cannot count them anymore. Filling out Amazon’s reporting form is so tedious *sigh* I have been made aware of a new way of reporting copies of your work: Order the infringing items from Amazon and after having them received, fill out the form with your order number as reference. Amazon does take customer satisfaction rather serious. It seems that in all cases (you still have to provide proof that you are the owner of the art/photo) you will get your money back. Plus can keep the item to use it, donate it, burn it, whatever… You can use the unrightful copies to take photos of the poor quality, rate it negatively or make comparison videos with your product. Endless possibilities…

I have ordered three doormats from French Amazon since there have not been ANY copies on German Amazon. Wow, almost a pity… They are still on their way over to little me – all the way from China. I cannot await receiving them!

I will keep you updated on this, I promise 🙂

So here I am, still looking for alternative methods to kick copyright infringers in their butts. Today I learned that you can actually report copyright infringements to Google to remove the infringing page from their search result page. Mhh, might be interesting to try, don’t you think?

To test it, I have just reported a blog that has been stealing one of my Santa Monica Pier artwork pieces with a unique effect. So you cannot argue that it is not mine. I had already opened a case through Copytrack and will just see how this goes through with Google. I consider it sending some extra love to an infringing website.

I stumbled across this great manual on how to fill out Google’s form, you might want to check yourself:

->  Report Copyright Infringement to Google Web Search | PCsteps.com

Very handy although 2 years old. Things rarely keep up-to-date online but this one is still very helpful.

 

The next step – after my test is all set and done and I can see the results – is to maybe report Amazons marketplace links through this feature. I am really fed up with reporting Chinese copycats through Amazon’s webform and am looking for new ways to hit both the infringers and Amazon. Removing product pages of Amazon on Google is a tiny step but maybe they will see a pattern. I don’t know… I am clinging to every tiny piece of hope.

Any ideas from you about this topic? I’d live to read your thoughts on this.
