Hi dear friends and followers 💕. I have to make this post, so you know what's happening and why my posts will have some changes in them 🙇.
It seems that Insta users living in Germany (I just know from cases in Germany, that's why I'm referring it this way for the moment) have to state in any post that shows some kind of brand or person, whether or not it was tagged or named, as advertisement, because those posts are considered advertisements here on Instagram.
There are cases now where Insta users got a adhortatory letter because they tagged a friend in their post and didn't write in the first 3 rows that it's an advertisment...yeah I know what you think and I think the same, so welcome to good ol Germany! So why did they got an adhortatory letter: because it COULD have been, that her friend payed her to advertise her profil. In another case a user showed a pic of one ice brand and didn't mark it as advertisement, because why should she have marked it, when she bought it and doesn't collab with the company to sell it to her followers?! BUT the post showed a brand and thus she got a adhotatory letter and has to pay for it and for the court costs that are coming, because she won't pay it without fighting!
One can't find anything about that law everywhere, so we're kinda sitting here and not knowing what's happening right now, just that if you tag someone or show a brand and you didn't write 'advertisement' you might have to pay a lot of money.
I'm a single mom and don't have resources to fight such a fight, so I will add ~Werbung/ Advertisement because mentioning a brand~ (or short: Anzeige/ ad cos ...) on the beginning of every post, when I'm thanking people for creating something for me (what I payed for, tho) or when I show my dolls. I hope you can understand me 🙇! Thank you for reading 🙇🙇❤!!!
