Intellectual Property Rights Policy
Spreadshirt offers an automatic service for producing and selling customised merchandising articles. Shop owners can set up an online shop for free and set up, design and offer their own specially-designed merchandise.
The Terms and Conditions prohibit shop owners from setting up or putting into circulation any merchandising articles that infringe the original author, brand or copyrights of a third party. Since a majority of the process is done automatically, sprd.net AG cannot insure that these rights are never infringed by a shop owner. Therefore, sprd.net AG asks all rightful owners that suspect intellectual property rights to let the company know immediately.
Following the Terms and Conditions, Spreadshirt holds the right to immediately delete all content (graphics, logos, text, etc.) that violate the intellectual property rights of an original author, brand or copyright. The shop owner must produce a confirmation of rights to the copyright or rights to use the copyright for every design uploaded. This would require proofing every design before accepted by Spreadshirt and potentially by a third party.
If you suspect intellectual property or copyright abuse, please contact our legal department. Many thanks for your help.
