I know this won't deter everyone from uploading other peoples' images but Zazzle added a check box when you create a product that says:
I have the right to publish and sell this product without violating others' rights, and I agree to Zazzles User Agreement

This may prevent the one or the other copyright infringement. I'm totally for it.

No idea how long this has been up there, I just saw it now.

Good.  Might help distinguish my vintage imagery store. 

All of my stuff is thoroughly researched to ensure it's in the public domain.  Artists are researched on Ancestry.com for death dates and possible relatives who might have copyright claims, plus I have the complete volume of copyright renewal status' in the US through 1973.  I also make sure all the companies that produced the images are out of business and can make no claims.  If there's any doubt, the image doesn't make the cut.  Too bad more vintage Zazzle stores don't go to that amount of effort.  Avoiding lawsuits definitely makes it worth the extra work.

Very good business ethics. I hope your clients appreciate that!

Just noticed this on the image upload page:

Respect the rights of others. Ensure that you have the right to use the images you upload.

They should add a check box there as well - I haven't even seen this yesterday and I uploaded images 4 times....  :o

It's at the very bottom of the pop-up where a person wouldn't ordinarily look.  It could have been there all along and I never noticed it, because I'm always looking at the top of the pop-up where we upload our images.   :P
