Fiverr Forum

So, how DOES fiverr handle copyright issues? (asking for a friend)


#1

Kidding, asking for myself.

I’m in the process of creating a new gig. One that’s generously inspired by an AfterEffects template I saw on videohive. It’s not going to be a carbon copy - boooring and I am also going to make it better :grin: - but it will look similar enough that I fear people might feel inclined to report it.

What would happen then? And most importantly, would I get the chance to prove¹ it’s my genuine work² before fiverr takes action?

¹ easily done as I’m not using AE
² there isn’t much in the way of intellectual property here. A photocube and the way instagram posts look.

Steal, recreate, infringe whatever you like. It’s the Fiverr way.


#3

Since you will have the source file templates, you MIGHT have a fighting chance in the event the gig gets pulled down.


#4

So it’s guilty until proven innocent, huh?

Shop around the video intro category. Then visit the explainer sub category.

then if you still have 5 minutes, browse the promotional video category.

can you see what’s happening out there?

do you see anyone giving a rat’s ass?

You also need to register your design as soon as you are done, before publishing it.

that’s what I do with all of my videos. that way if there’s someone stupid enough to send me a DMCA, I can compare source files, dates of publication etc
