What if someone tries to copy my images online?

The Design Databank secures and protects your designs by locking date information when you submit to it. The Marketplace has been designed to promote and market your designs and is in addition to your submissions to Databank. You should submit designs you wish to protect to the Design Databank. You can choose to display these designs on Marketplace also but you will need to use a separate upload process. All viewings of your designs are tracked and listed on your profile. You have the evidence of who has viewed your designs. If you are really concerned you can use software to watermark or pixellate your image before you upload it, but this may restrict the marketing potential if buyers cannot see your design.

The best advice is to always upload your designs and product information to the Design Databank before going live on Marketplace.
