“…one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.”
That’s a first for YoChicago – a quote from the Bible, Luke 16.
The quote perfectly sums up my take on Live Here Chicago, one of the rental services on our do-not-call list.
The firm and its agents have been engaged in an ongoing pattern of pirating images to which YoChicago owns the copyrights, and presenting those images as their own in Craigslist ads and other venues.
You might consider copyright infringement “a very little” matter, but we don’t. We spend a great deal of time, effort and money shooting photos of our advertisers’ properties. Live Here Chicago’s misappropriation of those photos is misleading to renters and property owners, and damaging to their interests in a number of ways.
We’ve previously opined that Live Here Chicago is “dishonest in much.” Recent Yelp reviews for rookie agents at the firm. and a scan of scores of the firm’s recent Craigslist ads, give us no reason to question that opinion.
