Reporting intellectual property infringements (VeRO)
Overview of VeRO
eBay developed the Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program to help protect not only intellectual property, but the consumer as well.
Highlights of the program include:
Because intellectual property owners are ultimately responsible for protecting their intellectual property, and eBay isn't an expert in an intellectual property owner's rights, we need your help in identifying listings that you believe may infringe your rights.
How to report a listing to eBay
If an item or listing infringes on your intellectual property rights, you can report the alleged infringement by submitting a Notice of Claimed Infringement (NOCI) to eBay's VeRO program. The NOCI is located here.
You can complete the NOCI by filling out, printing and signing, then emailing/faxing the completed form to us. Once your initial report has been processed, we will provide you with information on how to submit additional reports, if necessary, through other electronic means.
