Which proves beyond a reasonable doubt that they follow this site.
Good evening, Kate. Good evening, Gerry.

We are only trying to find the truth, you know ! Any chance of a bit of help?
No. I thought not.

ETA:

They should look into the mirror when they object to other people making money on the back of Maddie.
They are the biggest abuser of her name and image. They should hang their head in shame.

I've read a subsequent update from the McCanns on their facebook page and they claim to be in touch with Amazon to "have the stores taken down". Now, assuming it's someone using the images without permission (even though they claim to have permission), would it not make more sense for the McCanns to ask for the Maddie products to be removed from the store rather than have the whole store taken down? Why are they so militant in their approach?

I am hoping they only mean the offending items and not the whole website. Please tell me that the McCanns aren't THAT vindictive?

Well, they say they've contacted Amazon and I quote "to have the stores taken down". I don't know how many stores on Amazon are selling unofficial Maddie merchandise but from their facebook entry, they want them taken down- not just the offending products!

I would imagine that the print of the spotty man is seen as indirectly making fun of the McCanns which would be one reason for objecting.

They must be cursing they didnt think of the idea first...

When they sell products in her name should people also boycott their website?
Perhaps people should write to their gate hoster to object to them abuser Maddie's name to line their pocket.

After all their accounts show not all the fund is used for search as they claimed. So where does the profit from products goes to?

Looking at how many instances of "libel" Carter-Ruck claimed initially on behalf of the McCanns' - I can confirm that YES they are that vindictive! sad

Of course any normal person may have thought - good! these people are getting the word out about our daughter & helping raise interest in our search - K & G though seem to think - someone is making money that we aren't getting a healthy percentage of so lets- "have the stores taken down"

I thought the idea behind the image being used was to keep Madeleine in the public eye, a reminder to look for her. So regardless of who is distributing the merchandise, surely the main aim is being met ? Of course, if generating money for the McCanns company is the main aim, that is not being met.

I think they want the store taken down as they have no right (imo) to ask for the spotty man to be taken off sale. They don't own that. I wonder about the poster of the newspaper print of the two of them also, have they copyrighted themselves and all of the front page news stories from years gone by ? Much easier to kill the entire store.

Morning Sami.

IMO the McCanns "agenda" has never been searching for Madeleine. If it was then the first images they provided to UK & Portuguese media would have been representative ones of how she looked in May 2007 NOT old cuter pictures. Their "wider agenda" has always been to provide themselves with the safety of money so they can sue others (having spoken to journos & lawyers from Fleet Street they are known as one of the most litigious couples ever).

I see on FB page Gurney etc are criticising this amazon store for sharing older "age progression" picture. Possibly Ms Gurney could as official "Find Madeleine" FB page why they still have iconic red dress pic (of Madeleine when she was 2) as their avatar.

Oh but that would never do to criticise the McCanns' now would it sarcastic

No one is actively searching for Madeleine at the moment.
SY is doing a "review" not a search.
The PJ put the case on ice years ago
They have sacked, or let go, their PIs.
So only the public now remain.]
And they are trying to ban images which originally, we were told, were to keep M in the public eye ?

Sorry, I'm not following this ?

Oh, Money. SI££Y me !

What exactly are they reviewing, if anything at all? The official police files, or the evidence provided by the likes of the investigators employed by the suspects McCanns?

The PJ put the case on ice years ago

Archived with a homicide stamp

They have sacked, or let go, their PIs.

Not Quite:

Antonio Jiminez was jailed
Kevin Halligen was jailed
Arthur Cowley hot-footed it back to his head quarters in the Halkyn Mountains just days after his company was exposed as bogus.



So only the public now remain.]

And they are trying to ban images which originally, we were told, were to keep M in the public eye ?

Sorry, I'm not following this ?

Hello Gillyspot, I have not seen you around for a while.

Of course they have never looked for Madeleine, indeed they have gone out of their way to help the public look for a different little girl altogether. I was referring to what they want us to believe.

Last May was very significant imo. They had the publics attention, tv appearances and unbelievably SY publically commenting on the case, with Redwood stating she could be alive or dead. That was the moment for them to demand the Portugese re-open the case. But we had no public appeal, no open letter to the PJ on the front of the Sun newspaper, they did nothing.

They were like rabbits caught in the headlights when re-opening was mentioned, just a watery comment about hoping it will happen in due course. No sense of urgency.

Nobody was ever looking for her once the PJ shelved the case. The only difference now is there is nobody pretending to be looking for her.

And why Kate used the picture as the cover for her book.

Hypocrites the lot of them!

I think they are referring to their tacky wristbands, and not kate's bewk which is commissioned to Amazon.
As to why they need to state the obvious that they cannot be held responsible for other online stores is a complete mystery.

Either they think people are SO stupid that they cant distinguish from one store to the other, or the mccanns themselves are so stupid they think people must buy only from their store. So where does that leave their bewk on another website. Ermm...aha of course - they couldn't give two monkeys about the book sale because she's got her big advance from the Publisher and a handsome outright one-time payment from the SUN for the serialisation.

What's truly incredible is they saw the need to post up a disclaimer like that as if they have nothing more productive to do with their time. And, here's me thinking kate is working to her bones *searching* for Madeleine.

Mods, is there any chance of amending the thread title to reflect the fact it's a real business offering the products for sale? Thanks.

PS: The McCanns haven't succeeded YET to get the store taken down from Amazon.

Thanks Candyfloss. You may be right about something not being right but I think the current title is a more accurate reflection of the status quo.

According to the McCanns' latest update on their facebook page, the store has decided to take down the offending products. Seems the couple didn't succeed in taking down the whole store from Amazon. The products are however still available for sale on the Art247 website.
