Topic: What am I doing wrong please help someone

I see you cleaned up the description and tags for the example, but it's now time to expand the tags. Think about things like theme, colour (if relevant), and alternate ways of describing things. Aim to hit your ten tags for every product. In this case, things like "vintage","old-fashioned","man","moustache" and "drawing" are all relevant tags.

I sell way more things through the marketplace than I do from promoting items. Zazzle has a decent search system. You just have to learn how to get it to work for you.

Topic: Blinking Headline (and Smileys) are distracting

There was a discussion about the moving banner when they first put it in. The movement is an accessibility problem, but accessibility is not a priority for Zazzle, so we're left with finding workarounds for the problems.

The first thing is to install an adblocker and block the banner. For the smiley issue, I compose messages in a text editor and copy them over when I'm done. That way I don't have the constant animation.

I tried calling it a kneeler to override the auto naming, but it's not possible. I've seen these sold for gardening all over the place, so not selling for that use is just odd.

I didn't quote an MJ song. Why are you giving Michael Jackson exclusive Rights to a song title. How about Tony Cole (1967) or Klaus Klang (1980) Songs with title "Beat It"? Now, look at this one... Sean Kingston Beat It song with silhouette image

Again, if I put the word ONE on a t-shirt before the words "You too are..." am I infringing on U2? As in "U2 are One," where "One" is a U2 song title?

I'm seeing a lot of connect-the-dots to get to a conclusion, but then I see sprinkled in there assumptions about laws that don't stick. Words on a t-shirt that are also song titles are not quotes, unless wrapped in quotation marks. Song titles are just words. We can all use them without worry.


I had a product removed for having u2 as part of a textspeak phrase. If it had gone to court, it was not an infringement of the U2 trademark, but Zazzle's rules are stricter than the actual laws.

This is what people are trying to tell you. Zazzle's rules will restrict things that would be legal, because they don't want to have to prove it's legal in court. That means any hint of it being based on a celebrity is going to get a product removed. Zazzle doesn't care about whether you'd win the court case.

So the answer to your question is find an image that had nothing to do with a celebrity and doesn't even hint at a celebrity. Find some words that aren't connected to a song. Make a whole new design. If dance is your thing, a generic dancer with a dance move as the words would hit a similar market. Make sure to avoid any specific celebrity words in the tags and description as well.
