Intellectual Property Policy

As a venue for artists, designers, and makers, Indiatree takes intellectual property rights very seriously. We comply with intellectual property laws and industry best practices in order to maintain the integrity of our creative marketplace. This Intellectual Property Policy explains how we address allegations of infringement, how authorised parties can submit proper notices of infringement regarding content on our marketplace, and how Indiatree sellers can respond when their listings or shops are affected by a notice.

Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement

Indiatree strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When Indiatree removes or disables access in response to a notice, Indiatree makes a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about counter notification. Indiatree may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.

Counter Notification

If Indiatree receives a DMCA counter notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs Indiatree of this action. Indiatree sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.

Repeat Infringement

Indiatree terminates account privileges of members that are subject to repeat notices of intellectual property infringement in appropriate circumstances and at Indiatree’s discretion.
