So it has been 9 months since my wedding and my cousin who is dress shopping texts me asking why I am selling my wedding dress. I told her I wasn’t. She then send a link to alliexpress with my photos that I had uploaded onto wedding bee. There I was, in my parents living room and all. Had she never seen it, I would never have known. I was angry flattered confused all at once. I knew that my photos on here are up for grabs but never thought that this would happen. Moral of the story, watermark ur fotos I’d you don’t want them uses to sell merchandise.
Happy planning to all!

Wow how creepy! These chinese vendors are notorious for this crap. You might try to contact AliExpress to have them take it down, they’re a big company with a reputation so they might help out. Typically these chinese vendors dont observe any copyrights unfortunately, so there probably isn’t much you can do. I know yours is not the first photo a Bee has taken to be stolen by Chinese vendors.
If you contact DressilyMe and let them know their work is being ripped off they may have better luck getting the photo removed since they are also based in China.

I have some experience purchasing from Chinese sellers and this is what I suggest: contact seller to request for them to take down pictures. If it fails, contact Ali express. Note that Ali express is owNed by alibaba, which is a Chinese company. It may or may not act on your request because intellecruel property isnt strictly enforced in the country BUT take heart that alibaba is starting to pay more n more attention on the infringement of ip rights! I shop a lot on Taobao which is like china’s Amazon, and over the years I have seen greater emphasis on ip rights. They have been closing down shops and banning sellers that sell fakes.

Perhaps the company is Dresily Me trading under another name.

observer: But the still cannot use her photos, it is the photo that is the intellectual property, not the dress. But I see what you mean.
