From my experiences on Zazzle they seem to take copyright pretty seriously and the community there that is active on the forums is more knowledgeable than the average internet user.  You have to click a specific box agreeing that you own the copyright of materials/ have the legal right to use them for each product created.

Well, that's reassuring at least.

BTW, just a couple of days ago Zazzle was busy taking down any designs that had anything to do with Fender guitars. So I guess they're on top of copyright infringement.

I was just doing some random searches to see if there were similar products to what I was creating.  I was able to to easily check that that image hadn't had any extended license sales, so I gave them a  call and I just remember being really surprised when I got a real person on the line fairly quickly (and I was at night if I recall correctly) they were very pleasant and eager to help.  Then next day the product was gone.

I've also noticed on quite a few stores that use clip art type images you will see the store owner posting a message about using properly licensed clip art and a link to the artists whom they have deal with.

A bit confused here. Are you saying this was an iStock image that was infringed -- but it wouldn't have been if they'd purchased an extended license? I can't recall now if extended licenses allow purchasers to use the images for products like this.

I don't use any of my iStock images on Zazzle but I might in future use a couple that I plan to deactivate tomorrow.

I'm wasn't exclusive so I had to check a couple of sites.  The extended license terms are slightly different everywhere but at the time I believe at least one of the sites I was with allowed print on demand use in a extended license for resale.  The image in question hadn't had anything but standard sales so I was sure it wasn't legit.  I don't think resale licenses that allow POD are very common.

Okay, thanks.
