Several of you have been kind enough to send me alerts regarding products that were copies of Stampin' Up! stamp sets that you have encountered on (worldwide) internet sites you have visited. I want to thank you for alerting me. When I receive the pictures you have forwarded to me I have emailed them on to Stampin' Up! to the 'infringement' department. The following UPDATE provides an encouraging response to our concern about counterfeit products.
COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT UPDATE
Protecting the Stampin’ Up! brand is a critical priority for our company and we are grateful for your help and for the new tools that enable us to increase our effectiveness with cases involving copyright infringement.
With that in mind, we are excited to share our recent progress! Over the last 12 months, we have increased our success in shutting down copyright infringements by nearly 1,000% (yes, ONE THOUSAND percent) and as a result several online infringing retailers have ceased operations. We encourage you to continue sending information about counterfeit products to [email protected].
