Another Web Site with Stolen Photos From Cake Central

post #1 of 125
Thread Starter 
I hesitate to say bring this thing up again but it doesn't seem right that someone posts photos of cakes that are not their own. I see no disclaimer that says these are not her own ideas. I've seen three so far that came from here at Cake Central.
They are all wedding cakes. The first is the cake that shows up when you go to the galleries and see the picture next to round wedding cakes. It is on her site.

The second is this cake by boonenati. She even left nati's watermark on the picture.

The third is this cake by confectionaryperfection

I know I recognize more of the cakes from this web site. I just can't place them all. Maybe you guys can help. Maybe she just doesn't know that what she is doing is wrong.

Just found another one: This is a cake by Peggy that is on her website. Should we contact the people whose pictures are being used without their permission?

Having recently "been there, done that" with this issue, I would suggest PMing the people that did the cakes and letting them deal with it. Under NO circumstances should anyone else be emailing or in other ways contacting the offender. Cheers to anyone that finds this kind of stuff, and lets the rest of us know. thumbs_up.gif

It's ok to get mad, but it may not be your fight. Advise the owner of the cake or cake picture and let them contact her themselves.

All the rest of you - one very long and time-consuming word of advice: WATERMARK YOUR PICTURES before posting them here. Since this happened to me, I have gone in (slowly, but methodically) and done this to every one of mine. And I don't post a new one before I've done it.

Good luck and happy caking! icon_smile.gif

I think the bottom two are Colette Peters! She doesn't actually say she has done them...

arosstx, I agree with you on that. Bombarding her with emails will only upset her and everyone else. Should I PM the people I have found? Should someone be delegated to this task? I don't particularly want to volunteer. I was hoping that, with some help, we could pinpoint exactly whose pictures she is using and only those people could email her.

arosstx, just a side note to what you said. Aren't you a little upset about losing your cake picture title and keywords when you go back and edit your pictures? I started to watermark some of mine and noticed I was losing those things. That means no one can pull it up with a search.

And a note to everyone else. I don't want to be the cause of an uproar. Can we please just let those whose pictures have been taken email the lady? I do not want to see hateful things being said and done. She may not know any better. I'm just a believer in intellectual property rights.

One by puffed_tofu:

She doesn't say that she made the cakes, but she does say "look at our pictures". To me, that implies that she thinks she owns the pictures, which isn't true.

Hopefully, this is just a case of somebody being ignorant of the law (or ethics), and that she will replace the misleading pictures with some of her own.
