Default Etsy Question (I have the ebook)

My account was permanently suspended yesterday for yeah you guessed it copyright, made a few items with a green O and they thought it was copyright for the Oregon ducks.

I will be creating a new stealth account and my question is doesn't etsy asks for SSN# before starting a seller account I created mine (the one that got suspended) over a year ago and I remember that they asked me to provide my SSN# before creating the account.


Does anyone remember this?

Btw I will be using the direct checkout option not PP.


Thanks and Best Regards!

I believe as you are in the U.S. you won't be able to use direct checkout again. You can set up a stealth but will have to accept PayPal as payment.

Sorry buddy, but you're NEVER going to be using direct checkout again. Period. That is a one-time shot with etsy. Get used to PP only.

I can tell you from personal experience that the company that owns the trademarks for Oregon, Kentucky and U of Miami have been going after people. I just got my shop suspended because of Miami stuff.

The NCAA owns the trademarks, and yes, they do enforce them vigorously, much more so than the average NFL team.

People on Et/sy are no different than the Chinese when it comes to slapping logos and tradem.arked designs on anything and everything and then trying to profit from it.

I have no sympathy for that as you never acquired the proper license to do so and your profits are solely generated from the use of property you do not have rights to.

You shouldn't have a problem with paypal. I used 3 different paypal address linked to the same account.

I had the proper licensing and was still shutdown. I purchased from a licensed dealer in the US to resell and was told that I would still have to buy a license from this company that owns the actual licensing for a few schools. I had all the proper paperwork stating I can sell these items officially. Etsy doesn't care though.

Whether or not Etsy cares, you should take the moves to get that license and solidify your company. The competition is rough at Etsy

Well thing is I was shut down by Etsy. I have my own website and eBay and do pretty well. Etsy though was really good. I know with another store it would throw up flags to Etsy that I'm the same person selling the same licensed material. Sucks but it is what it is.

Well then, those aren't handmade by you either. So, that's another reason they can use against you.

It's a craft supply which is allowed. Problem is just because someone sends in a DMCA doesn't mean they are right and it's worthless because Etsy won't even investigate. They sent 4 notices at once which is why they shut down my store. I hadn't even had a previous warning. How can I argue with etsy though?

You can't. They don't care. Unfortunately, they take a completely hands-off approach and just assume the person making the claim is legitimate.

I always wondered if it's possible a competitor just fills out the form and emails it to etsy.

Or just an e-mail or so - could be a simple reporting procedure.

You can file f@ke DMCA's all day long if you want to combat competitors. You just have to look professional and agree to assume any liability that happens should a la.wsuit ensue.

Since I don't understand enough about the law and don't have money to keep lawyers in my back pocket, it's not something I would venture in to. But, people making f@ke claims happens 24/7 and since the average person is ignorant to DMCA laws, the claims never get challenged and the trolls making f@ke claims just keep on trucking.
