Selling on Etsy: How to Handle Copy CatsMonday, January 27, 2014
My name is Stephanie Creekmur and I own an online shop (as well as an Etsy shop) and while researching how well my products (including my Hey Y'all print that I've been selling for 2 years: www.etsy.com/listing/113251294/hey-yall-print-11-x-14-gold-or-silver) show up on Etsy and Google I came across your Hey Y'all print and I couldn't help but notice a very close similarity. While you are completely entitled to design and sell a Hey Y'all print of your own it is an infringement of copyright to sell one that so closely resembles mine. I do have to ask that you remove this product from your shop.
A lot of times this sort of thing is a misunderstanding and the person behind it doesn't realize they were copying. If you have any questions for me, just let me know. Thanks so much for your understanding.
