The MyRegistry browser extension allows a registrant to add a product from The Ivy House, a Bridge retailer, to a registry on MyRegistry. The Ivy House has no relationship with MyRegistry and didn’t grant MyRegistry permission to copy its website content.
A gift giver can start a purchase at an indie retailer on a MyRegistry registry list. This will result in confusion for the retailer because it will receive a registry order but have no registrant matching that name.
A registry on MyRegistry shows a product listing taken (copied) from the indie store The Ivy House.
Zola’s browser extension that allows copying of a retailer’s website properties.
The Zola browser extension allows a registrant to copy product data from an indie store’s website and place it on a Zola registry. The store paid money to load this picture and product content its website, and Zola software is copying it without permission. Zola will then likely use this copied data to receive orders and bypass the retailer. The retailer will not likely receive the order
The Zola browser extension allowed Zola to copy the the Juliska Berry and Thread 5 pc place setting onto the Zola registry. The indie retailer’s labor to take the photo, add the price, and create the product description was taken by Zola.
Registrants can allow a gift giver to purchase at the indie store, but this is not recommened by Zola. Zola recommends by default that the gift giver bypass the retailer and buy from Zola.
Zola encourages registrants to have gift givers check out on the Zola site, thereby bypassing the indie store. Here we see a gift giver viewing product data created by an indie store but taken by Zola. The gift giver uses the indie store product data to buy not from the indie store but Zola. The store did the product data upload. Zola copied the indie store data and cut out the store from the sale.
