Or maybe I don't speak for that many. Who can tell?


It's reminding me a bit of the EU referendum debate. Lots of talk, no information, and I can see that's how it's going to remain. I can't work with someone who values me so low.

If I thought they were listening to the request for better watermarks, I might agree with you.

How do you find out if sellers on Amazon have stolen your designs? I've never seen any of mine there, but maybe I just haven't found them yet.

Searching for the title is the best way, though there are sellers that don't use the title. You have to become a bit devious in your searches, find the Zazzle pillow shape, and go through all the pages of that seller, use search words on sellers storefronts, filter by newest in the marketplace etc. I have found some of mine that weren't using the pillow shape though. You have to be dedicated! And other domains as well - US and CA are the worst offenders, though I've found a few on the European domains.
But since I'm not uploading anymore until Zazzle get a watermark, I might as well do this!

Maybe its time to try a new tactic. I discovered something ironic! Who is Amazon.com provides the following details:

The problem is that registrars have no responsibility whatsoever. It's always worth a try but doubtful if there would be any result in the case of Amazon.

But I think it's worth it!
I'm beginning to feel this is a worthwhile exercise. Bearing in mind my pillows started being stolen in July and I didn't start finding them until mid-December, this is how my pillow sales have gone:
July 3
Aug 3
Sep 2
Oct, Nov, Dec 0
Jan 1
Feb 5 + 30
Even allowing for the fluke buy of 30 pillows in Feb, I still think it says that it IS affecting our sales.
