Policy regarding Intellectual Property Protection and Infringement Claims

TradeKey.com respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we expect our users to do the same. We have deployed a procedure to facilitate cooperation between TradeKey.com and aggrieved parties in protecting their intellectual property rights.

TradeKey.com is not an expert in your intellectual property rights, and we cannot verify that the users of our B2B portal - who post thousands of products and offers on TradeKey.com each day - have the right to sell the goods they are offering. We appreciate your assistance in identifying listings which may not appear on their face to infringe your rights but which you believe are infringing.

TradeKey.com is also not an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. By taking down a listing, as a prudential matter, TradeKey.com is not endorsing a claim of infringement. Neither, in those instances in which TradeKey.com declines to take down a listing, is TradeKey.com determining that the listing is not infringing, nor is TradeKey.com endorsing the sale of goods in such cases.

By submitting a report of alleged infringement to TradeKey.com and asking TradeKey.com to take down a listing, you agree to indemnify TradeKey.com against all the claims or damages related to the accused listing and those arising from its removal.

Procedures for reporting an alleged infringement to TradeKey.com:

  1. If you believe that a listing on TradeKey.com infringes your copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property rights, you may download our Notice of Claimed IPR Infringement form, complete it, and fax it to our legal department at +1-866-465-0120.

  2. Upon receipt of your request form, we will promptly evaluate your complain and send a notice to the accused party, to which they have to respond within provided time frame. This notice will contain your contact information so the accused party may contact you directly with an opportunity to respond.

  3. If the accused party failed to respond within provided time frame, or to provide substantial proof of their right to sell the listed goods, we will expeditiously take down the listing in question.

  4. If the accused party objects to complain, they may submit to us an appropriate counter-notice to dispute the claim. To take further action, you will be required to submit a notice in response, that an action has been filed against the accused party in a court of competent jurisdiction for infringement of your intellectual property rights.
