Topic: Zazzle: my designs and copyrights are not yours to give away

OK, I haven't yet been admitted to the FB group, but others have posted about consulting attorneys, so Zazzle knows that some designers have sought legal advice. So, they may as well as read this as well.

I have a online friend whom I first met in an online writer's group. She is also an attorney who lives in Los Angeles, and she is licensed to practice in California. Whatever others said about Zazzle being an Irish company, they still list the address for their corporate headquarters as San Jose. Consequently, I have contacted my friend and just sent her the links to the current ToS, the new ToS, the new licensing agreement, the royalty agreeement, and the privacy policy via FB. She was active on FB when I sent them, and she has read the messages. It may take her a while to assess all of that information, and she may want to consult another attorney, but should we want to take action and she determines that we have legal grounds, I have asked her if she sould be interested in representing us as a class.

Marilyn and I are reacting negatively in paricular to the fact that Zazzle activated their new tools over this weekend before giving us the answers that they say that they are formulating to the questions, comments, and concerns posted on the forum. As a consequence of Zazzle's activation of the new tools, we have been forced to disrupt our income producing writing in order to protect the copyrights on our designs. However, we know we are not alone in disrupting our work to protect our copyrights because others have posted to say that they, too, are taking the time to hide their designs. To Marilyn and I, this represents a potential financial loss as a result of Zazzle's actions. Incidentally, if you go to the news page in one of your stores, you will see that Zazzle posted that the new tools would not be live until November 22. I will be sending my friend a screen shot of that page, since she doesn't have a Zazzle store.

I also sent my friend a link to this forum so that she can read the issues and concerns being raised. I didn't direct her to any particular thread. I just sent a link to the Feedback Forum. I think that the relevant threads are pretty clear from their subject lines.
