Copyright photo flagged, But its my offical photo


#1

I uploaded a photo for my gig, which is mine, but got a notification saying its been flagged for copyright, how can I prove its mine and what action do I need to take on fiverr so they can verify it and repost my gig?



Thanks

I think it’s because you look like a movie star! :)) . Send a support ticket to customer service. I guess you can show them 2-3 photos of yourself for authenticity. Just my 2 cents.

Yes, CS is the only way to deal with it, since they took the action.



But just in case others wonder “how this kind of thing can happen”, please consider that there are multiple issues with “intellectual property rights”, and Fiverr needs to protect themselves and other customers. Sometimes that means there will be a delay in getting things approved, but if your case is valid, you should be fine in a few days.



What kind of other issues might be involved?



a. Sometimes it is just a mistake. Someone at Fiverr CS might have just hit the wrong key. Totally fixable, but mistakes do happen sometimes.



b. Does your photo show anything in the background which might make it questionable? Are you posing at Disneyland or something like that? If you try to use a pic like that it can raise issues.



c. Your statement itself does have some “wiggle room” …

Are you trying to say that the photo in question is a portrait of you and you own it completely? Or when you say "photo which is mine" do you mean that it is a photo you bought somewhere? CS might be suspicious of the latter situation.
