I have read the suspension rules. They seem a little vague in one area. I sell only new items, my store is on hold now, since my items are new I get my photos from my wholesaler for selling on the web. My question, since they are not my photos is that a violation?

I believe that the rule is that you must have written permission from the manufacturer that you are allowed to use the photos.

Ok, I just spent a few minutes looking at eCrater stores that sell posters, which is one of the items I sell, and you're telling me they all got the manufacturer's permission?

Not saying no one on ecrater.com does it
but I am saying clean up is in progress.

Copyright infridgement is a BIG issue especially on the internet.
About 6 months ago I read about Sony takign sites down left and right - the store owners THOUGHT that since their supplier supplied the Sony images they had the right to use thme. Not true ONLY the owner of the image can issue permission to use their image. In Sony's case they allow Authorized Dealers the rights to use their images BUT that does not extend to folks that buy it from the Authorized Dealers - many of which are drop shippers and the drop shippers supplied the images to the sellers.

So unless you want to end up in a lawsuit with the rightful owner of the images it is best for you to
#1 take your own pic or
#2 make sure you have permission from the rightful owner of the image not some middleman.

As for all the ones on ecrater.com
it's a slow process but it's being worked on.

b4itstrikes12, if your "Sold Out" category contains items you don't have for sale then that's most likely why your store is suspended.

Check out the eCrater Terms:

I've got the same problem; all my items are now dissappeared.. I just opened yesterday, and I can't figure this out. All the pictures I used were open promotionals from the companies we sell, so I'm not sure what to make of that.

Blah, maybe this doesn't work out so well or not.. do you get notified why you were suspended or is there anything send to you to inform you what you could do to change your suspension?

Sweet. I swear, all of our images are what we get for promotional material, manufacturers only want their gloss shots Smile But I saw that, thanks Wink It's a bold new world here, so there you go.
