I don´t think the ‘form war’ is specific to fiverr though, I know the IP issue from another place and it´s a pain there too and as far as I´m aware, it would be anywhere, because it´s always the IP holder who needs to file, and there are regulations for that, I don´t think it’s fiverr wanting to complicate matters.
That said I generally agree that they could do more, but I guess that´s where Eoin’s comment up there somewhere comes in.
Places where this is an issue that I know of aren´t in any way condoning IP theft, even if you of course can speculate that they are fine with it as they get a cut from it, one can though speculate also that the loss from losing the revenue from sellers and buyers who don´t know or care about IP might be balanced then by more revenue from buyers like OP who might else not buy on fiverr (anymore) and by more revenue the sellers who do care about IP then would make, because less sellers=more jobs for those that would remain.
I think the issue is that they´d need more man/womanpower. Which again is an issue of how fiverr spends their profits, which again is linked to which fee they take from us…
But yes, while I think they do take it seriously, like catwriter said there are the ‘I lost my account, have no idea why’ posts, there surely is more that could/should be done.
