Unable to remove photos from Google Business/Maps

Hi,

 

I cannot remove a copyright photo uploaded by a customer.

The photo has nothing to do with my business, but it is a registered property of another business in another city.

I have been called by a lawyer today and he asked me to remove it.

 

Business Name: Mekan Emlak (mekanemlakcanakkale)

Current Business Address: Cevat Paşa Mahallesi, Cevatpaşa Mahallesi Gül Sokak Turanbey Apartmanı No:3/A, 17100 Merkez/Çanakkale

Current Telephone  Number: +90 532 592 79 94

Photo link: https://www.google.com.tr/maps/place/MEKAN+EMLAK+%C3%87ANAKKALE/@40.153387,26.41043,3a,75y,90t/data=...

 Website: http://www.mekanemlakcanakkale.com/

 

Best,

I have posted this in reply to a similar thread before, but I have read a top contributor saying that starting your own thread will bring about a quicker solution. This is why I have started this thread.

Thankfully, I have got a reply from a visitor in the previous thread. Trying it now. But I need to solve this problem as soon as possible because the owner of the registered photo may file a lawsuit on me.

 

Best,

It appears that Google has incorrectly linked the photo to your business.  You have no control over this - the party in question needs to file a complaint with Google.

Hi, Phillip. The image has been removed. I think I won't face a legal issue anymore. But just in case I'll keep it in mind. Thank you for your support. Best.
