4.Infringement of other rights

Unlike people, you can infringe copyrights, privacy rights, or design rights if your photo shows certain features such as buildings, businesses, statues, art objects, company names, logos, trademarks, furniture etc.
In other words, if owners see their possessions as a main motive on your photo they might assume a violation of their copyright. This could result in a court trial.

Here are common example for photo which belong to other owner.

  • Buildings

    Photos are taken in distinctive property such as architecture, building or landmarks and if the property is main subject, you can not post/sell that photo on Weawow.
    On the other hand, building is not main subject, for instance, panoramatic townscape can be posted and sold without permission.
    Since there is no clear definition on what the main subject is, we want to emphasize the risk you face.

  • Taking a photo on private property

    If you are on privately owned property or in a public facility such as a theme park, zoo, restaurant, museum or friend's house, and you want to publish or sell the photo you took on Weawow, you need a permission of the owner/manager.

  • Logo, Trademark

    Photos on which shop signs, company logos, trademarks (fashion manufacturers), etc. can be identified, may NOT be posted. No CAMERA names either.
    The world is overflowing with logos and trademarks. However, you can retouch the photos so that such emblems or references can no longer be identified.
