I just found listings for factory made stuff from China!  I've reported it to Craig, so hopefully it will be removed.  When I keyed in "etsy" and 165 pages came up, even though her links say Artyah, there they were!!

Hate to sound like a real dummy here, but how could you tell?  I looked a little bit, and didn't see anything, so really need to educate myself on this.

Me too.. i searched for "Disney" but came up with vintage..i honestly wouldn't know if it's a copyright infringement or not unless people were recreating "Disney" items to sell.. or buying in bulk and reselling or selling Chinese "Disney" bootleg (not even authentic) items.. glad someone is monitoring, would hate to see this place get overloaded with knock offs and resellers looking to turn a buck..

I have found Hello Kitty, Disney, stuff made from NFL materials, shabby chic,  already here. You can report the items from the gallery page of the seller. Be sure to include item numbers.

Yes, searching for Disney, etc. is the easy part, but how do you tell  "factory made stuff from China"?  
By the way, there is still a Tinker Bell listing that has managed to survive...

I was looking through jewelry last and found someone using a trademarked name for a bunch of their bracelets [frown]

Because I wanted to see if anyone had listed any vintage Star Wars drinking glasses, I discovered some Star Wars listings, but none were vintage...also still some hello kitty, game of thrones, Harley Davidson, world of warcraft, some sports stuff oilers and panthers
 
My golly, how in the world are they ever going to be able to control it?!

Glasslady I have been wondering the same thing.
They need someone full time to keep on it now while it is still easily managed.
Or they need to write a program that will stop anything with trademarked/ copyrighted words in them.
I can imagine that wouldn't be that easy either.

For now all we can do it report the ones we see when we find them.

They're Here.....
I hate hate hate reporting another shop....but I honestly believe we all need to help. I find it kinda' hard to believe that after all the discussions on what you can make and sell...and what you can't... that folks don't know better. I agree that it is best now while somewhat manageable to stop some of it. I think we all have such high hopes for Artyah and would like to see it stay true to its purpose. I will just close my eyes and do it....I think we all must help.

GrandmaBecky.................I also hate, hate, hate having to report shops.

I know some will say it isn't our job but, I think we all need to help Craig with this.

I also feel like you do and think that most of the shops know exactly what they are doing using the TM/© items.
It baffles me that some sellers do it anway.

glassladyathome.  The lady had it right in her listings that everything was Made in China!  Otherwise, you're right!  Who would know?  It didn't even matter where it was from.
The product itself did not fit in the categories allowed, Handcrafted, Vintage, Supplies.  I hope the shop was removed.
It's going to be hard to stay on top of it, as more and more people list.  That's why I think we should be the eyes for Craig, if we come across something that's suspect.
I don't feel bad at all reporting it.  The offenders are trying to spoil our beautiful site, and not bother with the rules!

Hi all

Please click on the report store button to craig, I have been checking as well.  I told Craig when we get the import tool it would come even bigger. It is frustrating, we post and post it, even in terms and they still do it.
I have come up with a design, it's a pop up window that a seller has to check off and agree they do not sell manufactured, copyright and a few others. Before they go on to the final step in signing up. Hoping it helps and they think twice about it. I won't be giving any refunds back if I find them and they have checked this agreement.
Justmetoo found a real good one! They were drop shipping from China. No drop shipping allowed! If you make it, it comes direct from you. 
And while I am on the subject, I was told of someone from Etsy is starting a new site, not sure when, but I checked on the person and he sells copyright infringement items, super mario and other items like this. Not vintage, handmade. Burns me up! He has a gofundme page and is selling shares for a website that is not even built or live yet. I normally don't post stuff like this. If anyone is interested in his "new" site here is his lovely Etsy page. Which I see Etsy does not care if he sells using super mario brothers and other names to sell his work. Be original!!! make a name for yourself, that is all I have to say on this. Hugs to you all for all you do. I will be working on advertising today and posting on Social networks. Everyone have a wonderful holiday.

The addition to the sign up form will certainly help Laura.
