CafePress Review

| Cafepress.com allows artists to upload designs; however per Given Eyes to See, (www.giveneyestosee.com/say-no-to-cafepress/the terms of agreement) their company “changed the policies of your copyright and ownership of the items on their site. They now will claim royalty-free rights to publish and display YOUR items with or without identifying the content as yours” under items 6.1 and 6.2 of the terms of agreement: | 6.1 CafePress.com Service: CafePress.com will solely and exclusively own all intellectual property and other rights, title and interest in and to the CafePress.com Service, and CafePress.com will have the sole and exclusive right to obtain trademark and copyright registrations, patents and other protection therefor, and you will not acquire any right, title or interest therein, under this Agreement or otherwise. | This means that they will use artists logos or designs for their own profit even after the artist terminates their account. | In this case an artist, who may not even be a Falun Dafa practitioner, listed merely as “Cafepress user” profile 1636329 (www.cafepress.com/profile/1636329) who also has designed or used “Don’t Tread on Me” logo, Picasso paintings, and whatnot, is using the Falan Dafa logo, a sacred symbol comparable to the Star of David, and plastering it onto clothing and other items sold at profit. Whether any of it is returned to Falun Dafa is unclear. In the past, I thought about buying stuff from them, but Falun Dafa practitioners generally make their own items and not for profit, whether clothing, mats, books, paintings, music, the only profit is when it is officially sold by FalunDafa.org specialty shops such as Tiantibooks or Shenyun for helping support the enterprise. | Because shops such as Cafepress.com or even Zazzle.com represent a grey area in profit, with only a small percent returned to the artist, and possibly perpetual rights detailed in the terms of agreement, and with only a promise to cease using artist content as soon as reasonably practical upon any termination of agreement, the consumer is not benefiting artist directly. Here, the artist is not even necessarily a FalunDafa practitioner, yet they are using the logo on not just T-shirts, but mugs, tote bag, apron, medallion or necklace, and undergarments. Here is what is shown as related item under T-shirt. See the logo on the thong at the end? That qualifies as offensive and sacrilegious merchandise used for desecrating purposes.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on Beware.org, it is strongly advised to avoid CafePress Review in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from CafePress Review. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike Beware.org, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
CafePress Review is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
