Artists work very hard to create original designs. The copyright on these designs is not only to protect their livelihood but also their integrity.
The designs and artwork of designers is being stolen, copied and sold without their consent on websites like Flipkart.com.
Flipkart.com is a leading e-commerce site. Millions in India have been using this site to shop for their favorite products. But what the customers don’t know is that some of these products are copies of original designs and must not be sold on online sites.
Flipkart has an ethical responsibility towards its customers.
That’s why I started this petition asking the CEO of Flipkart, Sachin Bansal to ban 39 sellers who are selling copyright infringed products on flipkart and to make a public announcement against piracy.
According to Flipkart’s own policy, the users of the site cannot use the website if any product “infringes any patent, trademark, copyright or other proprietary rights or third party's trade secrets or rights of publicity or privacy or shall not be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen products”
However, there are no checks in place to ensure that the sellers are abiding by this policy.
Flipkart must take a stand on the issue and ban these 39 sellers who are selling copyright infringed products on the sight. Flipkart must also make a public announcement against piracy which will send a strong message to all the sellers indulging in this practice.
I am a part of Artists Rights Protection Society (ARPS). This society has been working tirelessly to prevent and protect original artwork of creators and owners. Our mission is to create awareness about the Copyright Act of India to create an environment of trust and ownership for every designer.
Sign my petition and call to an end to this rampant piracy which is creating an atmosphere of distrust for artists and designers.
Here is the list of 39 sellers who are infringing on original artwork of famous brands and copying their logos without any permission
