  1. Ok .. thanks for the latest replies. I truly appreciate all the replies. I think we are close to the truth now. That makes us happy and sad, it's a bittersweet feeling. What you are saying can make sense. yes. this is probably the most likely scenario. Linden is probably right, but handling the issue poorly. We never intented to infringe a trademark, but we did. We can't argue with that. Imagine if in the first place, we had received this email from Linden : Instead of a general, vague and canned reply. Things would have been completly different. And maybe some of you could
  2. Yes, Chaplin got that suggestion offline from a user 1 hour before being banned and He could add me as manager in the last minute from his phone (he was at his regular job). Saved by the 🔔 This morning (2 hours ago) I have figured out how to unlist all the items. At least, now that I have the bikes out, he won't receive more warnings and he is safe.
  3. You are behaving like a troll (this is not an attack, just trying to be constructive about your attack against me) I hope you are not trying to turn this topic into a drama to give an excuse to have the topic closed or deleted. (actually Linden does not need any excuse to do it whatsoever .. I know ) If you wanted to trigger me with a grain of arrogance, sorry but no .. On the contrary of what you insinuate, all I wanted was to get feedback about this issue. A few forum users have been helpful and I thank them. They have been pointing this and this from the items. I really appreciate it,
  4. We appealed to Linden using the IP email and this is the reply we recieved: Of course this is a standard reply from Linden, Let me insist on this: we haven't used those words as spam or keywords. NEVER We don't know exactly where the problem is, we have some clues but It's obvious we have done something wrong. Linden won't say what it is, won't be more specific than that and this is the most we will get from them. When people used to complain about Linden, I always took these claims with a grain of salt. I used to think people were being dramatic. Now that this has ha
  5. My friend never got the 1st warning in the first place. In fact the second email was sent hours after the items were removed. If we discovered the items flagged first is because we are an active store in Second Life. When they ban you, you can't acces your merchant home. So now, even if he wants to fix this, he can't modify the marktplace items. 👈 Insert any ironic joke here Have you checked any item from the marketplace, .. for example this one: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/V-Twins-Bike-Bobber-Racy-Rider-single-color-Purple-model/15367003 No Harley davidson logo, n
  6. I didn't state that. I said that some of the have, but others don't Some have been removed without Harley and others with the word "Harley". For example, Segways don't have the "Harley" word, whatsoever ... and they have also been removed.
  7. Ok, the bad news is that my partner Chaplin Tomorrow has been banned for a 1 week and he has done nothing to deserve this. We have not misused Harley-Davidson brand ... not pretend, not once or two. In fact we have always stayed away from those guys. Now my partner (he is not premium) can not contact linden to know what to do. He can't access the marketplace to remove the bikes ( as a safety measure ) ... His store is online, but he can't access the merchant home. Ridicoulos and propostreus. The idiotic thing is that now Linden could say that he is infrindging another trade
  8. So far Linden has not contacted us explaning how we have to do a counter false DMCA. First they removed the items, and a few hours later they sent the email explaining briefly why. They have been completly opaque with this issue. The most hilarious part of this takedown is that they have removed "segways" for infrindging the HARLEY-DAVIDSON trademark. I thought about that, but not all the items have that line "harley style" and the email from Linden clearly says that the trademark in violation is: HARLEY-DAVIDSON However, thank you very much for the apprec
  9. No ... they have randomly removed one or 2 from each model for the same reason. One savage, one xtreme, 1 road hog, 2 racy riders, 1 comando etc. My assumption 👈 is that someone from Harley Davidson searched the word "Harley", (because Harley Davidson does NOT appear). The marketplace gave them a few items and they filled up a dmca against the first ones. If you scare a few merchants, you draw a line with a few scapegoats. I bet a thousand dollars, none of the IP team department bothers to check the dmca claims. They saw Harley Davidson, they saw a motorcycle and they didn't bother to ch
  10. Let me show you something really funny !! One bike from a competitor and one bike from my partner, I give you the links: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/BCR-Abbot/9697799 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/V-Twins-Bike-Chopper-Road-Hog-Lone-Wolf-Model/6363906 None of these bikes use the word Harley in the description or in the words and probably none of the others. But they do appear in search .... how is that possible ? 😳 It would be bad joke if my partner gets banned for infrindging a trademark that he is not infrinding ...
  11. How am I supposed to know if the MArketplace says our bikes are harleys, but we do not tag them as harleys or call them Harleys or use the word harley ???
  12. Ok. . I got an email from my partner Chaplin Who knows? Maybe someone read this topic and thought it was a good idea to send the email. My partner received the email 1 hour ago 😳 Great because we never received the 1st email to begin with. They say our bikes are branded as HARLEY-DAVIDSON FALSE The search for HARLEY-DAVIDSON Marketplace on the marketplace is this: click here (None of our bikes is there) The search for Harley gives 2 bikes ... but it must be a MArketplace Error because they are not branded as Harley Davidson
  13. The wiki page is a legal page that I read years ago and says nothing that I am not aware of. It's useful to review just in case, but nothing else. Other babygirls items have not been removed plus it's a not a trademark that I'm aware of Agreed. But other items removed do not have Dunlop tyres. I will discuss with Chaplin the case for replacing these tyres.
  14. I'm helping @Chaplin Tomorrow to manage his store: V-Twins Bikes Before you start, I know what copyright is and I know what trademark is. I also know the differences between both. That's why I have been trying to help Chaplin with his bikes and how to brand them so that they do not infrindge anything. Today some of our bikes were removed for Intellectual Porperty Policy and this is the only explanation we have from Linden (completly useless) : http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Intellectual_Property Linden has not given us any specific comment about the violation. Chaplin has not re
