Intellectual Property

BiggerBids.com Intellectual Property Rights Policy

BiggerBids.com provides auction and store templates both by in-house and freelance designers. We contractually prohibit our designers from using materials that infringe third-party intellectual property rights (such as copyright, trademark, trade dress and right of publicity) in their designs. We encourage intellectual property rights owners to contact us if they believe that a designer has infringed their rights.

If you make us aware that your rights are being infringed by one of our designers we will (in our discretion) remove the template in question from our product mix and, if the designer continues to infringe your rights (or infringes the rights of others) terminate our agreement with that designer.

If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been infringed upon by one of our designers, please provide our Support Department with a notification that contains the following information:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other rights that have been allegedly infringed.
  • Identification of the copyright, trademark or other rights that have been allegedly infringed.
  • The URL, detailed description, template name or product number(s) used in connection with the sale of the allegedly infringing merchandise.
    Note: that simply including “www.biggerbids.com” is not sufficient to identify what you are objecting to; please include links to specific designs.
  • Your name, address, telephone number and email address.
  • A statement that you have a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the rights owner, its agent or the law.
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other right that is allegedly infringed.

Initial correspondence on this subject should be passed to our support department who, in turn, will appropriate correspondence between you and our Copyright Officer. Our support department can be reached via our Contact Page.
