Content thieves are people who steal, copy, or replicate your unique images and text for their own Shopify store.

Lastly, we’ll offer a solution for how you can prevent people from stealing your images and copywriting.

What is Unique Content?

Unique content can be any original photos or images (including illustrations) and/or copywriting.

Shopify merchants spend a lot of time typing out terrific product descriptions and catchy product names.

Product descriptions are the way you sell on your store, it’s essentially your pitch or funnel to get someone to click buy and complete their checkout.

Furthermore, unique product names differentiate you against the competition.

Shopify merchants also spend a lot fo time taking high-quality product photos or hiring artists to create unique branding logos.

Eye-catching photographs can help create a brand’s reputation as standing out.

Distinctive product images also serve as eye-candy and keep the customer browsing until they find what they were looking for.

The Problem

The issue is that content thieves pose a real threat to your content. Essentially, anyone can take your stuff directly off your Shopify store because nothing is locked.

Currently Shopify doesn’t automatically block right click on user’s browsing your online store.

People can right click on your images and save your images on their computer for their own use.

This is unfortunate because this means your images could potentially be used to promote another online store (other than yours).

Essentially, content thrives profit off the hard work of Shopify merchants who are trying grow their brand.

Unique Content is Lost Forever

It’s very hard for Shopify merchants to discover that they their images have been stolen.

Merchants who happen to come across their stolen images in Google search (by chance) have little to no recourse in attaining their stolen images or stopping that person from continued use.

Imagine your Shopify store sold organic bars of soap. And your images were stolen…what would you do?

Once your images and text are stolen, there is little you can do about it.

In the end, customers might be wondering who images are original (yours or theirs).

This is not ideal for company branding and building a reputation around being unique.
