So they sent a DMCA takedown because the webstore was not using their product photos?

How can not using a photo be a copyright violation?

No, they claim that when using a photo, the photo must be an officially approved photo

Yes, that was what I wrote.

Ah, I misunderstood - I thought you meant not using any photo at all.

And I repeat: NOT using one of GoPro's officially approved photos can never be a copyright violation.

And using you own photo of the camera can never be a copyright violation either in any jurisdiction I know of. There are some items which you can not take a photo of and publish it, usually art items and/or buildings, but consumer goods does not have such a protection.

I fully agree!
