I just opened my shop 2 days ago Very Happy
I hope I get some orders soon~

This is my shop: http://whimosity.ecrater.com/

Any comments? Or suggestions? Should I add make more products or wait?

Also I'm trying out the Google Analytics. How long does it take for the tracking information to appear?

Welcome to eCRATER. Your items are cute. You should definitely add more. 8 items in a store won't attract the attention of search engines.

I do wonder about the legality of a couple of your items. Godzilla and the Katamiri prince may be copyrighted images. If so you do not have the right to reproduce them without permission.

Question: Your stickers...what makes them sticky?

Oh I am definitely planning to add more.

For the copyright issues, I was wondering about that too since I've seen people selling fan related items before. Aww...I was planning to make some movie related stickers. I'll check that out.

It's sticky because I drew on top of sticker paper, then laminated then cut them out. So fun to make Very Happy

thanks for the advice

I just found a very interesting article about this kind of copyright issues...
on http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2010/fan-art-and-fair-use-one-truth-and-five-myths/
and http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html
The definition they have for fair use is so blurry. I don't know, should I take the risk or not?

As I read the articles, the first has to do with you and the second is for using another person's words as in plagerism or quoting someone without permission and would have nothing to do with you unless you were to use lines from a film or song in your work.

There is being caught by the internet police or being reported to the lawyers of the people in question, and running afoul of eCRATER. eCRATER can suspend your store. The others can take you to court.

Fair Use applies primarily to using copyrighted materials for educational, review, research and generally NON-PROFIT purposes. Making money off someone else's character, artwork, etc. would likely not fall under fair use and would be considered a copyright violation.

Thanks guys for the explanation Smile

It sounds too risky....so I'm going to remove it.

I'll be adding more items soon so please check out my shop in the future~
