How to File a Notice of Intellectual Property Infringement

Etsy's Intellectual Property Policy covers allegations of intellectual property infringement, including copyright, trademark, and patent infringement.

Sometimes, these matters may be amicably resolved directly between the parties before filing a notice of infringement. You may choose to respectfully contact the individual member(s) about your concerns via Etsy's messaging system. Learn how to contact a shop on Etsy.

If you’d like to file a notice of intellectual property infringement, read our policy and follow the instructions to file a notice. Every notice Etsy receives is reviewed by our Legal Response and Enforcement team.
