Copy Right Infringement - Reporting Listing Violations
Kartberry has put in place Kartberry Infringement Verification Process so that intellectual property owners could easily report listings that infringe their rights. It is in Kartberry's interest to ensure that infringing products are removed from the site, as they erode Seller and Buyer trust.
If you are a Verified Rights Owner and want to report a listing issue. Note: Only the intellectual property rights owner can report potentially infringing products or listings through IVP. If you are not the intellectual property rights owner, you can still help by getting in touch with the rights owner and encouraging them to contact us.
If your listing was removed through IVP, and you believe that your listing was removed in error, please contact us.
Kartberry does not and cannot verify that Sellers have the right or ability to sell or distribute their listed products. However, Kartberry is committed to removing infringing or unlicensed products once an authorized representative of the rights owner properly reports them to Kartberry.
IVP works to ensure that item listings do not infringe upon the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of third parties. IVP participants have the ability to identify and request removal of allegedly infringing products and materials.
Any person or company who holds intellectual property rights (such as a copyright, trademark or patent) which may be infringed upon by products listed on Kartberry is encouraged to report the same to Kartberry.
How to Report Copyright Infringement :
To report a copyright violation, we require that you fully complete and email Us a Notice of Infringement form specifying the allegedly infringing listings and the infringed work, complete with an original authorized signature. The information requested by the Notice of Infringement is designed to ensure that parties reporting products are authorized by the rights owners, and to enable Kartberry to easily identify the material or listing to be removed.
In the interest of keeping the process easy and simple, after we receive your first Notice of Infringement in hard copy, future notices can be sent to Us by email at email@example.com.
Note: In your notice of infringement, you shall be required to identify the individual listing which is infringing your intellectual property. General notices shall not be accepted.
We are happy to receive such information, but must advise that we may be limited in Our ability to respond to your request absent formal notice from an authorized rights owner.
