I'm bringing this back up. It is absolutely of the utmost importance that you address image security. The theft I am dealing with is on an unprecedented level. You are allowing thieves to get images far too easily from your product pages. I am reporting HUNDREDS of sites per week. It is a huge time waste, not to mention, it is damaging my BUSINESS (yes, business - I'm not a hobbyist - I have a TRADEMARKED brand name and the awful copies of my artwork that include my brand name in them are devastating to my future).
I am asking for IMMEDIATE response from Amazon on this. Add watermarks, reduce the images, change the way the shirts are displayed so that they aren't "flat" images. Do SOMETHING. I don't have a specific demand. I simply BEG you to implement changes that will make it more difficult (and LESS appealing) to thieves. There will always be thieves, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do something to DECREASE the amount of theft occurring. You asked for artists to come to you... to TRUST you with our livelihoods. You have a part of the bargain to live up to. YOU MUST PROTECT OUR WORK.
I for one will NEVER upload another image to your site unless you add image protection. This isn't an empty threat. It isn't done to punish you. It is because I have a business to protect and no amount of money being paid out to me is worth the NEVER-ENDING cycle of theft I'm having to deal with.
Please AMAZON - do something to help us out here.
