(DMCA and General IPR take down notice process)
What’s this policy all about?
At Envato Market we respect our community and intellectual property, and we expect our users to do the same. This policy explains how we, as the service provider of the Envato Market platform, address allegations of intellectual property infringement against content uploaded to our platform by Author’s, and how copyright owners and authorised parties can submit valid notices of intellectual property infringement regarding this content. As allegations of intellectual property infringement are made against the content in the Author’s items, this policy also explains how Authors can respond when a DMCA takedown notice has been issued against their items. This policy forms part of the Envato Market Terms.
What are your options if you think your content is being used without your permission?
