Selling Copyrighted Materials


#1

I found someone selling copyrighted materials stolen from a website. And even worse is that they’re level 2… They’re made lots of money off someone elses work…



Is there anyway to report this?


#2

If Customer Support doesn’t reply quickly (they’ve been very backed-up for quite awhile) you can email legal@fiverr.com. That’s the address listed in the Privacy Policy, I believe.


#3

I would say contact support and explain the situation providing as many reference links as possible.


#4

I have to ask, how do you know they’ve stolen the materials - how do you know the website owner didn’t buy the materials from the Fiverr seller?

Reply to @vedmak: I agree with you on this & none of us can judge this situation fairly if we don’t know who we’re on about or what exactly is said to be stolen (or see it for ourselves). I could steam in here all jealous about someone else’s gig for example (all resentful that they are earning) & make my bias case to you all on this forum but really no one here is qualified to judge & neither can they do anything about it or witness what I say (I could say anything).



It would be a bit like coming here without the bottle to go take it to Fiver support myself & expect others here to hold my hand or to make encouraging noises to make me feel better about my intention of making damaging claims (a guilt trip). After all, it’s always obvious the Fiverr staff are the only people who should rightly be notified of these sorts of things not a forum of unknowing people. Why would anyone need the directions to contact Fiverr support anyway.



I say if your instincts tell you it is the right thing to do & you are sure about it with all honesty, then do what you feel you have to do, after all, no one in this forum would wish anyone to lose sleep over anything here, that would be terrible.

"‘website’ site or part of it can’t be reproduced, doubled, copied, sold, or used for commercial purpose without ‘company’'s permission."
