Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.
Gold & Silver Investments Ltd
Gold & Silver Investments Ltd of London & Ireland are just one of the many dishonest gold & coin dealers worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission.
On their "Historic Gold Sovereigns" page http://www.goldassets.co.uk/products.php?item=027, which we reproduce here, they are clearly using one of our 1820 gold sovereigns images, and we are still checking the remainder.
Gold & Silver Investments Ltd About Us Page
Gold & Silver Investments Ltd claims:
Gold & Silver Investments is a financial services company specialising in wealth preservation strategies. We provide asset diversification services to investors, companies and institutions in the EU and internationally. Gold & Silver Investments offer our clientele a variety of investment options and asset classes. These include precious metals, pension products (equity, property, bond and cash funds) and deposit products.
First, and most obvious. Gold & Silver Investments Ltd have taken and used our copyright images without our consent or prior knowledge. This is a clear breach of our Intellectual Property Rights. We call it image theft, and it is dishonest. It is also unprofessional.
If the company is an important well established bullion dealer, then surely it could afford to take its own photographs, buy them from an image library, or commission them from a professional photographer. Instead it appear to have chosen to steal our pictures. Apart from exposing them as cheapskates, it is unfair competition.
- Gold & Silver Investments Ltd expect their customers to trust them with the storage of high value assets, yet they cannot be trusted not to steal images.
