Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1121

post #16801 of 19228

I am confused as to why they would mind their photos being used here? I've never heard of the brand, but they look well made and comfortable.

Are you really in the shoe business or maybe more in photograhy?

If you are shoemaker why are you against such good promotion?

After this post the potential buyers would better knock another door.

As I understand it (I'm the forum admin at another site)...and it has to be spelled out in the terms of usage...any photo or text posted to a forum becomes the property of that forum.

Unless, of course, it was posted without permission. That may seem like a broad caveat but really it's not so much. If the person originally posting the photos owns the shoes and took the photos, then they are his to post. If the photos are widely available on the internet as advertising material, then they are in the public domain. I don't know how the person who posted those photos obtained them (were they stolen?) but if they were taken by the maker, and made available to the public...esp. in the absence of an explicit injunction about reproducing them was ever made...then they are again fair game.

Someone more conversant with Internet law may wish to chime in here and clarify or correct me.

Unfortunately that is not the case. The person or company who has taken the photos always owns the copyright, unless you state otherwise, that they are free of use for everyone. Most forums and blogs don't care about this at all, and posters don't even specify where the pictures are taken from (which in my point of view is a decent thing to do). Most of the time noone cares, but strictly legal, you are braking the copyright laws.

But where is really a problem? Guess that OP posted a pic found on internet - had he stated that these pics where his property or the shoes on the pics are made by another maker? That was a sort of advertising and probably some people decided to place an order after seeing these pics. He should have % from sales for such adv.

Yes, I can't for the world understand why Workshop is angry for pics of his shoes being posted here, I should salute OP if I were him. But legally, he has the copyright of the pics and can demand SF to remove them from the site. Even if you link to the source you don't have permission to post pictures without permission from the owner of the copyright, juridically.

Love those wingtips Petkov. its the first time i hear of this maker. Is there a reason why youd prohibit someone from posting pics of these beautiful shoes?

Stitches are still intact. Stuff the sole with as much wax polish as possible.

The brown wholecuts are Meermin, check the thread, and the captoes are EG Asquith IRC.

Jup, Meermin and EG Asquith.
The colour seems lighter in bright sunlight.
