eBay.com.au’s Point of View:
eBay is committed to protecting the intellectual property rights of third parties and providing a safe trading environment for its members. There are a number of ways that an owner’s intellectual property rights can be infringed. These include infringements of trade mark, copyright, patent and design rights.
What eBay does:
eBay has created the Verified Rights Owner program (VeRO). Intellectual property rights owners can join the VeRO program by completing a valid Notice of Claimed Infringement (NOCI) form. eBay can remove any listings that contravene intellectual property rights but is careful to check the listings and may reject any claims that it does not believe to be a valid infringement of rights. The member who has made the listing is informed of the reason for their listing being removed and if there is a dispute regarding the removal or lack of removal of a listing, eBay encourages the members to resolve it directly with one another.
