Complaint Review: Yodle - Internet
Yodle Yodle illegally uses photographers work in their templates from stock photo sites Internet
*UPDATE Employee: Yodle Response
One of Yodle's services is website templates, which from what I understand cost between $825-1400 per month. Seems like they have many customers! But this money is partially stolen from photographers like me.
Yodle is using some photographs I have taken licensed to stock photography agencies. None of these agencies allow photographs to be used in templates as they are essentially re-selling my work and voiding an agreement between the stock agencies and myself. For templates they must pay an exclusive use fee and other royalties.
I can't comment on Yodle's services, customer service, or success but I can say they are essentially stealing from stock agencies and photographers for their own profit.
To make this right, they need to audit and pay for all photography used ASAP. This is past the need for a lawsuit.
