Protecting Intellectual Property in the NFT Space: Reporting Copyright Infringements

Safeguard your creations by reporting potential infringements and learn how to lodge a copyright infringement claim

Updated over a week ago

As the NFT (Non-Fungible Token) space expands with numerous collections, it becomes increasingly challenging to distinguish original creations from copycats and derivatives. At Magic Eden, we are committed to maintaining a safe and respectful environment for artists and creators. To uphold this commitment, we have a robust Terms of Service and Copyright Policy that evolves alongside the NFT community's growth.

In our collective effort to preserve intellectual property rights, we encourage our community members to help identify potential infringements so that appropriate actions can be taken.

Identifying and Reporting Potential Copyright Infringements

Recognizing and reporting potential copyright infringements is crucial to ensure the protection of original works. If you come across a collection that appears to be a derivative or potential infringement, you can easily flag it on its specific page within the marketplace.

How to Report a Potential Copyright Infringement

  • Navigate to the collection page in question.

  • Locate the flag button, positioned on the upper right-hand side of the collection heading.

  • Click on the flag button and select the appropriate option to report the potential infringement.

  • Provide any additional information or evidence that could support your claim.

Our team will thoroughly review the reported collection and take necessary action based on the findings. By actively participating in this reporting process, you contribute to maintaining the integrity of the NFT ecosystem and help protect the rights of content creators.

Lodging a Copyright Infringement Claim

If you believe that your own intellectual property (IP) rights are being infringed upon, we encourage you to take action promptly. To do so, follow these steps to submit a notification of claimed infringement against the unauthorized use of your copyrighted work.

How to Lodge a Copyright Infringement Claim

  • Access the designated Copyright Infringement Claim Form on our platform.

  • Fill in the required details, including your contact information and a clear description of the copyrighted work being infringed.

  • Provide specific links to the infringing content, enabling our team to locate and assess the alleged infringement accurately. Include a statement verifying that you are the rightful owner of the copyrighted work or an authorized representative acting on their behalf.

  • Submit the form, and our team will promptly review your claim and take appropriate measures as necessary.

Please be aware that, upon submitting a notification of claimed infringement, details regarding the claim may be shared with the impacted account holder. This measure ensures a transparent and fair process for all parties involved.

At Magic Eden, we value and prioritize the protection of intellectual property rights within the NFT space. By working together as a community, we can identify and address potential copyright infringements, fostering an environment that celebrates creativity and respects the contributions of artists and creators.

If you have any concerns or questions about copyright issues, please feel free to reach out to our support team. Together, let's continue to make the NFT space a safe and vibrant place for everyone to share their unique creations.
