Olax Infringement Verification (OIV) - Reporting Listing Violations
Olax has put in place Olax Infringement Verification process so that intellectual property owners could easily report listings that infringe their rights. It is in Olax's interest to ensure that infringing products are removed from the site, as they erode Buyer and good Seller trust.
Olax does not and cannot verify that Sellers have the right or ability to sell or distribute their listed products. However, Olax is committed to removing infringing or unlicensed products once an authorized representative of the rights owner properly reports them to Olax.
OIV works to ensure that item listings do not infringe upon the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of third parties. OIV participants have the ability to identify and request removal of allegedly infringing products and materials.
Any person or company who holds intellectual property rights (such as a copyright, trademark or patent) which may be infringed upon by products listed on Olax is encouraged to become a OIV member.
Program membership entitles you (Verified Rights Owner) to the following benefits:
How to Become a OIV Member
To join the OIV, we require only that you fully complete and email Us a Notice of Infringement form specifying the allegedly infringing listings and the infringed work, complete with an original authorized signature. The information requested by the Notice of Infringement is designed to ensure that parties reporting products are authorized by the rights owners, and to enable Olax to easily identify the material or listing to be ended.
In the interest of keeping the process easy and simple, after we receive your first Notice of Infringement in hard copy, future notices can be sent to Us by email at ss@Olax.IN.
Note: In your notice of infringement, you shall be required to identify the individual listing which is infringing your intellectual property. General notices shall not be accepted.
We are happy to receive such information, but must advise that we may be limited in Our ability to respond to your request absent formal notice from an authorized rights owner.
