Fiverr ignore me from a copyright issue! I need an explanation


#1

Hi There,



Firstly I’m Virtues and I’m a top rated seller on Fiverr. I have some gig related to draw Simpson character and recently my gigs had to change, remove every word simpson in the title and description due to the copyright violation from 20th Century (Fiverr told me that).



Lots of sellers had the same problem but the one that have been featured and he’s also a TRS, too



He keep selling and violating the copyright. And he is the only one that still have good amount of orders because he had the word Simpson in his title.



I asked Fiverr tons of times for a clear explanation but I got nothing but ignoring my message.



What your thought? Is he featured and top rated seller so he could keep that gig running with the violation? And is Fiverr trying to protect him?



If any Fiverr staff read this discussion, please explain as I didn’t receive any answer from you. If he could do that, I must have right to do that, too. That’s not fair for hard working sellers.



Thanks

Virtues

simpsons are trademark , flag em all and contact support.

I just did a search on the Simpsons and there are many people using that word.

So I agree that it seems odd you would be singled out to be warned not to use it.

Did you ask customer service about this?

Yes, I asked them tons of time and they ignored giving me a clear answer! It seem that they are protecting that gig

Reply to @biancha: Did that, but as I said, they ignored me. If I ask them something else, I will get the answer within a day. But whenever I ask about that gig, then my message has never been answered

Reply to @biancha: Yes , Agree with Biancha. Contact the person or company that has the intellectual property rights for the character Simpson and ask for permission to keep doing what you do. If they provide you permission, you can continue with it.



For example, consider Youtube. This is the process they follow for Intellectual Property Rights claims. :slight_smile:
