As you would appreciate, all sellers on DNAuctions must have the legal right to sell the content they are listing.
Dealing with Violations
If you feel you have found any violation of this policy, please refrain from posting a public comment saying so. This is potentially libellous and DNAuctions can't be liable for this. Your first course of action should be to contact the responsible user by private message and request that they remedy the breach.
If this course of action is ineffective, please contact us. DNAuctions Support and we will attempt to remedy the situation by talking to users on both sides of the issue. We may have limited access to historical information about users which will help us – bear in mind that if you are constantly the subject of complaints, we may be less likely to believe your side of the story.
However, DNAuctions Support has no means of determining once and for all who owns content. This is a matter for the legal system to ultimately determine.
Various laws which apply to content on DNAuctions include the European Union Notice and Take down.
These laws provide for a takedown notice to be filed with DNAuctions which will result in the immediate removal of content. In order to do this, you must hold the copyright to the content in question and be prepared to state this in a court of law. Also note that on either side of a dispute you may be liable for damages if any legal action ensues – We would all like to avoid this happening.
Each response to any takedown notice varies from case to case, and we usually disable the links to the subject content and contact the parties on both sides of the notice. Occasionally, especially in the case of repeat offenders, we'll suspend and / or ban users.
