Policy Relating to Copyright Infringement
We keep an updated list of copyright holders and their contact information, so we can alert them in case a complaint is filed against them. This way, you can be sure no one infringes on your rights in our marketplace.
No more stolen work
You might not know this yet, but there’s no way of telling if someone is stealing your work online without registering it with us first. That’s why we’re here to help authors enforce their rights in law (copyright) and make sure they get paid for their creative efforts.
At the Shibtee, we always check the rights of use before using the works of third parties (others who are not contractual partners) to prevent copyright infringements.
-Free images: use images and photos only if explicit reference is made to free commercial use.
-Despite free commercial use, we often give credit to the author; include the name of the photographer or designer under the image so that it is clear to everyone who created this work.
-Save the link or take a screenshot of the site, where the free commercial use of the image is granted.
-Buy images if no free commercial use is offered (e.g. Adobe Stock) and keep the invoice as proof.
Sometimes, we use photos from others on the Internet without us even knowing copyright infringement. In case, we will remove all products related to the photos and pay a retrospective fee to the author and give credit for the work.
Copyrights are among every author’s most valuable assets. Therefore, we do everything we can to avoid copyright infringement and protect the works and the rights of their authors.
