Angry My unique product has been removed by ebay compeitior via vero

Hi all

Today My unique product has been removed by ebay compeitior via vero

They have said its a copywrite violotion / intellectual property rights violation!

However this product is 100% safe and legal in the UK and has been created solely for my company use for example this fully branded with my company and also designed especially by me.

So I won't to know what steps that I can contest this as its my competior falling this information resulting in my hard earned sales stats and listing to be removed.

I'm fuming about this any infomatuk and regarding the steps I need to take to get back my listing and also how to tackle this false vero claim I would be very grateful

Thanks and I look forward to your replys

The only way for ebay to remove this strike is if this competitor of yours writes to them and tells them to remove it.

Isn't there any way I can contest this or make it never happen if future to stop any future vero threats as I'm the ip owner I just don't have a vero account.

What process would you recommend I do to start the process to resolve this do you recommend? *

yes the ebay email states


Your listing was removed: VeRO Design Right Policy


We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our VeRO Design Right Policy. Infringing on a design right is not allowed

- Your listing was reported by "xxxxxx" for violating their design rights.  eBay’s Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) programme offers intellectual property owner(s) a way to report listings that they believe infringe on their rights 

- Offering a product that infringes on design rights is not allowed
- If you believe a mistake has been made, you will need to contact the rights owner directly. If the rights owner approves your appeal, please have them contact us directly to reinstate your listing(s)
You can send an email to: xxxxx



This is ridiculous as i am the designer of my unique and own company branded product, its a competitor abusing the vero system to take out the competition.

What do you think the best action next i should take?

Yes it's definitely been done by one of my competitors as he has done this before about 1 year ago.

I'll get my IP design registration with .gov and then provide this and all other documentation or product design files and proof of purchase and testing certification for my design/product and see how i get on then cheers, any further angles or information is much appreciated as competitors should not be abusing the vero system to wipe out their competition to benefit their own companies advantages its ridiculous, i've been established powerseller on ebay for 12 years now and i just think this is a joke.

This was the reply i got back from ebay vero team


Your listing was removed: VeRO Design Right Policy


Hello



Thank you for contacting eBay's Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) program regarding the removal of the following listing at the request of a participating VeRO rights owner:



I have reviewed the action taken on your account and determined that it was taken in error. The listing has been reinstated and can be found in your Unsold items folder. Likewise, the associated violation has been removed from your account history.



Regarding your request that the selling history for the listing be reinstated, that is not something that can be done. I have, however, added a high-profile note to your account with instructions to review similar claims closely to prevent this from happening in the future. I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. And I appreciate your patience as we worked to resolve this issue.

Regards,

Lee W.
eBay VeRO Program

Congrats on getting your listing back. What did you say to eBay to have them reverse their decision?

To be honest, the best thing you can do is buy something from your competitor you believe is doing this (to try and get their address), and hire a private investigator to make sure it's them doing this, then get in touch with a lawyer. A lot of work but unless someone has a better idea, the only other option I see is praying eBay doesn't screw you again.

With MP rolling out, I suspect certain kind of sellers getting kicked off of eBay eventually, unable to return. Should clean up the marketplace.

To be honest they just admitted it was removed due to an error (on there behalf of-course) however they havnet done anything to help me out regarding loss of sales, sales history and linked product reviews its very very frustrating.

Ebay needs to start protecting the long time reliable sellers and have something in place to prevent attacks by idiot competitors word of mouth it seems this tack tick has been used a lot not only to me a few times previously but to many other ebay sellers also.

And yes i plan to make a purchase for this sellers product from all of their ebay accounts and starting gathering this information, ebay and amazon competitors need to stop acting unlawfully and greedy and this wouldn't effect honest sellers like myself and also prevent me from having todo this research on them and their company now its ridiculous considering the amount of ebay fees pay each month shocking behaviour!

I don't think you are going to find many on this forum who fit your criteria

A lot of people selling lookee-lickie stuff, copied software or dodgy digital but people with a unique product who have had the problems you have? Not in my lifetime
