Think it's OK to put in your listing. As long as you mention " picture of Miss X with a B bag" or some such in your listing. More than one picture of celeb is kinda cheezy, IMO, but I guess it sells bags! I mean what you really want to do is give the important details like bales, rivets, tags - back and front, buckles, etc., so they can be sure it's authentic, not whether it's cool that a celebrity carries it. Of course I am always just selling a Bbag to fuel another Bbag purchase so I may not be the best salesperson...
When I use a celebrity picture, I take their heads off so all you see is the body from the neck down carrying the bag.It's not supposed to be OK as it's one of the options one has when reporting a listing: unauthorized use of celebrity faces, names or signatures. But fBay doesn't remove them.
Well, have you given any thought to asking a celebrity to sell your items???I'm surprised fBay doesn't make much of an effort to pull those listings. I've never used a celebrity photo, not just kuz I haven't paid a celebrity to sell my items, but kuz the auctions that include such photos look kinda tacky to me. IDK...it turns me off when a seller tries to sell me a bag based on what some celebrity is using. I couldn't care less what Cameron Diaz or Lauren Conrad are carrying, KWIM? But that's just me
It's called copyright infringement and it's against the law! It's no different than stealing another individual's photo to use in your listing. People need to take their own photos...I would never buy anything that was showing an "ad photo" as the listing photo.Seriously, I don't think ONE celebrity photo is too tacky or over the top because I am guilty of doing it lately. OK.. Lindsay, Kate, Nicole, Paris, Mary Kate, et al are seen wearing B bags and people seem to love these twits.
