Pillrr respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we expect you to do the same. Pillrr’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines do not allow posting, sharing, or sending any content that violates or infringes someone else’s copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights. Pillrr is not responsible for any infringing content post on the Platform.
As a Pillrr user, you are responsible for the content you post. If you have questions about copyright law or trademark law, such as questions about whether your content or your use of another person’s name or brand infringes or otherwise violates another person’s rights, you may want to contact an attorney. If you are unsure whether the material you plan to report to us is infringing or otherwise violating another person’s right, you may also want to first seek legal advice before reporting such content to us.
If you submit a report or infringement notification to us, we may contact you if we have additional questions about your report or notification. Please note that Pillrr is not in a position to adjudicate disputes between third parties, and may not be able to remove the content or suspend the account you reported. As an alternative, you may want to contact the person who posted the content or owns the account to try to resolve your issue directly.
We do not allow any content that infringes copyright and trademark. The use of copyrighted content of others and the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark in connection with goods or services in a way that is likely to cause confusion, deception without proper authorization or legally valid reason may lead to a violation of Pillrr's policies.
At the same time, not all unauthorized uses of copyrighted content and the use of another’s trademark where the mark is not used to designate the user’s own goods or services constitute an infringement.
Any content that violate another’s copyright and trademark rights may be taken down. Repeat violations of copyright and trademark rights in connection with the use of the Pillrr’s site or app, or other violations of the Terms of Service and Community Guidelines may result in the suspension or termination of the user account. We reserve the right to refuse any account holder whose account was used for improper activities from opening a new account on Pillrr’s site or app, or otherwise hosted by Pillrr.
Complaint and Notification
Contacting the user directly may resolve your complaint more quickly and in a way that is more beneficial to you, the user, and our community. You may also file a Trademark Infringement Report.
Trademark Infringement Counter-Notification
If you receive a copyright or trademark infringement notification that you believe to be in error or believe that you are authorized to use the content, you can reach out to the trademark owner directly to request a retraction.
