How many times do I have to report the same copycats until they are removed?
I have reported the same exact copycats for over 3 weeks now and nothing has been done. Meanwhile I am losing sales and they now have sales. I am now suffering financial damages from this infringement! This is ridiculous! There should be a way to protect our designs against copycats.
How are we supposed to have time to create new content when we have to spend hours each day checking our designs and resubmitting copyright infringement forms over and over again?
The perceived value and quality of Merch by Amazon products and the copyright holders is being damaged by inferior copies of the original work which is pixelized or has other defects.
When copycats are taken down why do we not receive any of the commissions they have made from our copyrighted work ? If this copyright violation was taken to court the copyright holder would be due "damages" and any profits from the infringing work would be paid to the original copyright holder from the infringer.
I am growing very tired of this and I am about to delete every design on Merch by Amazon and go someplace else that will protect original creators better. It should not take 3 weeks and 6 reports to 2 different departments (and still no action has been taken ) for the infringes to be taken down. If I was a Disney I could have a listing removed immediately. If I was a multinational conglomerate I could have an FBA listing shutdown in a heartbeat. And during this time even more copycats jumped on the listing so their is the original copycat from 3 weeks ago and now I've got multiple ones with more showing up every day!
