Default Re: Etsy removed one of my bows

I had some "Burberry Inspired" things removed from my shop about a year and a half ago. I thought using the word "inspired" was ok...I was wrong! I removed right away and just listed as tan, red and black...LOL. Def. doesn't get as much attention, but I'm happy to be playing it safe Sorry it was taken down though, maybe you can just re-phrase!

I would contact them to be sure they really sent the DMCA. I had an item removed via DMCA and it was a phony complaint sent by a competitor. It's easy to fake a fax # on the internet apparently and Etsy obviously doesn't double check the DMCA complaints that they receive to ensure they were sent by the Copyright holders or their agents.

It's always tough when your own item has been targeted, yet others are left alone...I know how it feels! But, yes, if you use a copyrighted name in a tag, it's the company's right to remove it.

They must be going through Etsy listings and yours was the first one they noticed - I'm sure they're looking at the others as well.
