Copy Cats ...


Whilst trawling Etsy today, (The Housekeeper sells on there), she came across the following;

https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/194578294/abyssinian-cat-unique-wall-clock?ref=sr_gallery_17&ga_search_query=abyssinian+cat&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery


You thought he looked familiar didn't you! Beautiful isn't he... Yes It's our Jasper, sat in the conservatory.

Needless to say, The Housekeeper will be contacting the shop owner on Etsy as they have NOT asked for any permission to use her image for profitable gains. She will also be checking the internet regularly for other individuals using images of her pets without permission.

Let this be a lesson to all pet owners that either your individual pictures OR the site they are on MUST have a visible copyright clause if you do not want your photographs to be stolen and used for commercial gain.

  1. Well, that was rude of them - and illegal! I see the item is now unavailable, but who knows how many other photos they "borrowed" from others?
