In most cases, designs are removed from Society6 for infringing the copyright, trademark, publicity right or other rights of a third party. Generally speaking, when your design is removed it is because Society6 has received notification from the rights holder or authorized representative that the design is infringing.
Society6 has a zero tolerance policy for infringement on another's copyrights and other intellectual property rights. It is our policy to expeditiously remove content that is reported to contain material that infringes upon the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of third parties or that violates our Terms of Service. That said, when your work is removed it does not necessarily mean that Society6 considers your work to be infringing.
While most designs are removed for intellectual property concerns, in some cases designs may be removed for violating our Community Guidelines or other laws.
If you believe that your design was removed in error, you may contact us here. Ultimately we are unable to provide legal counsel or personal opinions regarding matters, and suggest you consult your own professional if the information above does not offer any additional clarity.
