|VeRO: Helping to Protect Intellectual Property|
At eBay, our mission is to provide a global online marketplace where practically anyone can trade practically anything, enabling economic opportunity around the world.
While eBay has created a unique online trading platform, it is our community of users who build this very dynamic and robust trading environment. This community of users is guided by five fundamental values when buying or selling on eBay.
As part of our mission, we are committed to helping to protect the intellectual property rights of rights owners and to providing our users with a safe and enjoyable place to trade.
For this reason, eBay has created the Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program so rights owners can report listings that infringe their rights. Any person or company who holds intellectual property rights (such as a copyright, trademark or patent) which may be infringed by listings or items sold on eBay is welcomed to participate in the VeRO Program.
In addition, we believe that by providing information and guidelines to our community of users, everyone can contribute to help building a safe and reliable marketplace where people can find success.
