Counter Notice Letter

This is the eBay Counter Notice Letter.

Dear eBay Seller,

eBay recognizes that sometimes a listing may be mistakenly identified by a Verified Intellectual Property Owner or law enforcement as offering an infringing or otherwise unauthorized or illegal item. In the event that such a mistake occurs, you should contact the complaining party directly. eBay will gladly allow you to re-list the item upon receipt of an acknowledgement of the mistake from the complaining party.

Alternately, if the complaining party does not agree that their request was in error, you may provide the attached Counter-Notice Regarding Removed Listing to eBay. The Counter Notice form requests a sworn statement under the penalty of perjury and other information which substantially complies with the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. section 512, which states:

To be effective under this subsection, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to the service provider's designated agent that includes substantially the following:

(A) A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
(B) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
(C) A statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
(D) The subscriber's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber's address is outside the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent from such person.

Please fill out a separate Counter-Notice form for each listing which you believe was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification. We will not be able to consider your Counter Notice unless you fill out the form in its entirety, and physically sign the form.

Upon receiving the original of your fully completed Counter-Notice, eBay will notify the reporting party. If the issue(s) cannot be resolved, eBay will send your Counter-Notice to the reporting party. eBay will inform that entity that eBay will allow the re-listing of the removed items within 14 business days unless eBay receives notice from the reporting party that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from re-listing such items. If the reporting party disagrees with your Counter-Notice, they may file a legal action against you to prevent the re-listing of the ended item(s). Alternatively, if they notify us in writing or by e-mail that they no longer object to the item, listing, or material, we will allow it to be re-listed.

Very truly yours,
eBay Inc.
