Pell City, AL asked in Internet Law and Trademark for Alabama

Q: How can I counter response to someone who reported me copyright infringement even though the art is different?

I was sent a notice on Etsy about copyright infringement but my design is different then what is being reported. I used different images and fonts. How do I respond to get them to over turn their decision?

A: This question is a very specific one, and will turn on the specifics of who is reporting what to whom, and what their and your designs are. Maybe Etsy has a simple process? Otherwise, I'd suggest that this can only be properly answered by an attorney in dialog with you, and not through a web form.
