Shopswell Copyright Policy

Shopswell ("Shopswell") respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. It is Shopswell's policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at https://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, Shopswell will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using the Shopswell website (the "Site") that are reported to Shopswell's Designated Copyright Agent, identified in the sample notice below.

If you are a copyright owner, or are authorized to act on behalf of one, or authorized to act under any exclusive right under copyright, please report alleged copyright infringements taking place on or through the Site by completing the following DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement ("Notice") and delivering it to Shopswell's Designated Copyright Agent. Upon receipt of the Notice as described below, Shopswell will take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the challenged material from the Site.

If Shopswell removes or disables access to content in response to a Notice, we may notify the user with details about the Notice so that they can submit a counter-notice. Shopswell may also send a complete copy of the Notice to users where appropriate.

You can quickly submit a Notice by using our easy-to-use web form:

If you'd prefer not to use our form, please provide the following information to our Designated Copyright Agent:

Identify (i) the material that you claim is infringing (or to be the subject of infringing activity) and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material, including at a minimum, if applicable, the URL of the link shown on the Site where such material may be found, and (ii) the reference or link, to the material or activity that you claim to be infringing, that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate that reference or link, including at a minimum, if applicable, the URL of the link shown on the Site where such reference or link may be found.
  3. Provide your mailing address, telephone number, and, if available, email address.

    "I hereby state that the information in this Notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed."
  5. Provide your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature.

If the work you identified is an image, you can ask Shopswell to remove all copies of the image identified in your request by clearly specifying in the beginning of your email that you are requesting that Shopswell “remove all Pins containing the image”. Please note that only identical copies of the image file can be removed by this function. If an image file has been re-sized or altered in any other way, then it cannot be detected or removed through this function.

What if I receive a Copyright Complaint (DMCA) notification?

If you receive a notification that content has been removed due a copyright complaint, it means that the ontent has been deleted from Shopswell at the request of the content's owner. If you want us to forward the information from the Copyright Complaint notification, just email us at [email protected] to let us know. We'll be happy to send it along (though we may remove personal contact information where appropriate). If your account receives too many copyright complaints, you may lose the ability to add new content on Shopswell, and your account may be disabled completely.

If you believe that content was removed in error, you have the option to file a counter-notice by following the steps below. When we receive a valid counter-notice, we will remove the complaint from your account's record.

Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions. Before submitting a counter-notice, be sure that you are the actual rights holder of the removed content or that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed in error, and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
