Better Homes 2

they removed the watermark and put on their website and I think we will see the same pic in the Construction Week soon.

the solution

the simple solution is for imre to approach them and say, look you are taking all my photos for free. The photos are obviously good as you wouldn't be using them. I like doing this job. Just employ me or contract me as a free lancer.

Then imre can approach a few other estate agents, and then everyone is happy

(true it is worth saying he has approached xyz solicitors and they have advised him that what they are doing is illegal etc)

all about quid pro quo and working out a win win situation.

even if it isnt his publication, we should still brig him just for fun!
or force him to live in international city for 2 full days.

ANYWAY, i like the idea of going to RERA with this.
seriously... its YOUR pictures, why arent you guys actually doing something about this rather than just whining/whinging (remember the whine vs whinge thread?) about it?

I say cover the pics with watermarks, contact RERA or the management of these companies. if you guys dont want to do that, then just close this damn thread and let betterhomes or gowealthy use your pics as their own.

Funny thing is that the Chairman of BETTERHOMES had written a column in Property Weekly about the ethics of Real Estate Brokers and how they often present to the public something they're not.

Imre, maybe you could write 'Better Homes Sucks" where you write 'dubai construction update' for a few!

@Imre
nice watermark man... see it doesnt look too bad at all. and i kinda agree with DUBAI - you should write "betterhomes sucks" although im guessing you probably find it a little juvenile.

Emma Cullen, Director Ė Customer Care & Data Management, Better Homes

I would firstly like to apologize to anyone whose image has been used without consent.

I can reassure each and every one of you that Better Homes is fully committed to improving image quality and if for any reason there are any images on our publication and print media materials that are copyrighted, we would be happy to replace them.

I would therefore ask that if any of you spot your copyrighted imagery being used without prior consent that you send an email through to [email protected] including the unit reference number so that we can swiftly track and replace the image.

I would also like to add that in acknowledgement of this issue we recently invested in a dedicated team of photographers who will be responsible for collecting all of our images in the future.

Finally, Better Homes is itself, by no means immune to this issue and to counteract other agencies misusing our own images we recently added a Better Homes watermark to them.

at least they are proactive and in my dealings with them probably the best real estate company in Dubai. Well done Emma Cullen
