photo instagramers Tuana on Mango ClothIf few months ago a very well known magazine used without any permission, a picture of our friend @sionfullana, today @Tuana our Instagramers manIger from Skovde (Sweden) that one of his photos is used (without any authorization) in a garment of the brand Mango. (see article online store Mango)

Tuana Aziz is one of our beloved Swedish Instagramers and we interviewed him about his project last year.

Tuana is very concerned since he worked for a long time in a book called THE LAST PRINCESS with all his passion and sees today one of his favorite works (it´s Tuana´s profile photo actually) in a garment of international clothing brand. And without authorization.

Tuana found it by surprise visiting a store in Sweden and then ratify the misuse of one of his photos in the on-line catalogue of the brand.

¨ I´m really upset… I Don´t know what to do “ says Tuana. Me neither… But we can´t accept this kind of behavior…

Probably Mango trusted in an original design of ¨a clever designer¨ from wherever that caught without scruple a photo from Instagram but from Instagramers.com we must ensure the respect and authority of the art work of our members and friends.

I do not know if it will help or not, but we can not let this kind of thing go. Please spread the word…

  1. I would really like to know the follow-up to this. Does Mango reply/apologize? Did they buy it from Instagram? If they did, then under the new TOS, they are OK. But it would be a massive case and the first of its kind. Either way, printing it on a garment is a whole different scale to printing it on a website. They are making massive commercial profit from it. Please let us know the follow-up.

  2. Even with the new IG TOS, they will still be liable for using user content without authorization. The new IG TOS stipulates sharing user information such as the brands being followed or the services that are being subscribed to. User content, on the other hand, continues to be the property of the user.

    Mango’s credibility has suffered a blow. The fact that they haven’t made a move to rectify things after being tagged in various posts informing them of this infringement only serves to make things worse. Mango should be liable for this, and the “designer” responsible for the theft, sanctioned.
