Copyright Infringements Rules/Laws

Just a quickie directed at @Facer_Official really -
How come it’s totally fine for someone to create a Face using the Nike logo and even naming it Nike as well, and then actually allowing said Watch Faces to be in the Top 100 Free Faces List :thinking:
Damn, a lot of people have their Faces taken down for a lot less, so why allow these people to blatantly disregard the same rules we are all bound by and get away with it :thinking: :angry:

From what I know (which isnt much lol) the system isnt perfect, and it IS automated to some extent, but for a face to be taken down it either has to be caught by the system automatically OR the company in question has to issue a takedown request.

so If Nike doesnt care, they wont send in a request.

Ok, but once they issue such request, its aimed also against facer it self, not just the brave soul who dared to commit this offence.
Look at the number one in top 100 free apple faces right now. Its simply template face with a watch company logo pasted on it, where, using same template, logos of others (not just watch companies) landed on other “reproductions”. If left unpoliced, it just gives impression it was ok and even awarded to do so.

Even worse , I had several of my RELOX brand removed, where i have changed name brand, crown logo, and even changed words at the bottom to say Aussie made instead of swiss made. Not one part of the ones that i have had removed have been copy right protected and the only way to get them back is to send an actual letter to American address through the post with my name and address to company that seems to be an actual scam.

with all the faces on here that are copyright , like the ones n the top 100 that have stolen logos, have i been sent 9 of these emails for faces that are clearly a joke of a watch brand , and in no way copyright protected… I have emailed them , but they never respond to me and just kept deleting my faces and allowing real copyright material on the site.

it doesnt seem like im the only one after reading the communtiy page, that this site is a scam and allows copyright if your a premium user and everyone else be damned. You cant even save or back up faces unless you dupilcate them , then id have 100s of unpublished faces to go through when lookign for the right one. seems like a huge pain in the ass for a company that is doing the wrong thing

You cant use the nike name or logo its copyright infringement - https://agreementservice.svs.nike.com/us/en_us/rest/agreement?agreementType=termsOfUse&uxId=com.nike.commerce.nikedotcom.web&country=US&language=en&requestType=redirect

yes, facer has to control it more strongly and differently.
The bot has caused trouble for all of us, even if there was actually no copyright infringement.
And yes, everything that is a real copyright infringement needs to be removed urgently.

But another avenue that needs to be explored is to educate users better and show them that using someone else’s work in this way basically sucks.

Any artist who has a little pride would never claim anyone else’s work as their own.

Im guessing that things like REFLEX or RELOX or any reassembly of letters like that are submitted by Rolex as possible infringements.

but if nike or other places arent looking for it, theyre not getting taken down

and as for the logo, i dont know why that wasnt caught. i had a circle with reflections on it as a tick at 12 o’clock and it was caught as the BMW logo lol.

I guess, just be careful not to name things like Oyster Perpetual and Submariner and things like that cause those will get caught, and everyone just do your own work.

Whos “Bitching”??
I dont think legitimate complaints are "Bitching or taking the piss . I dont think we as human beings should allow corporations to get away with abuse of its users just because they do 1 thing well. (like sync a face to a watch, as far as thaty goes thats pretty basic code.
Facebook steals information , tik tok does as well, who is to say that this app isnt stealing information or at least not abiding by the LAWS that they set for the users.

I agree, they took down my Garfield watch faces but there are a couple of people that are allowed to have Garfield. I call BULL PUCKY.

I think they might get away with it if He is not mentioned in the Description or Title. It certainly will not be removed from FB. Did they post a Link.???

there are dozens of snoopy, and other copyrighted material on here facer doesnt care at all but they bully me as i have still not heard back from facer about my NON copyright RELOX faces of which 9 were taken down for no reason at all, they dont say rolex, I also changed oyster perpetual to lobster perpetual changed offical to unauthorized, so my faces come under mockery , joke, faces not copyright at all. and they removed them and wont respond to me about getting them back but they allow hundrends if not thousnads of actual copyright material on here everyday

Yeah man… Just take a look at the cartoon section. I mean…wtf?

yeah, but if ya cant beat em , join em and stop complaining, its not your problem and your not the facer police.
