Does crowdspring have specific policies to protect Intellectual Property?

Yes we do! Protecting the intellectual property of both clients and creatives is very important to us. In fact, since our launch in 2008, crowdspring has been the market leader when it comes to the protection of intellectual property. It helps that our founder was an experienced and successful intellectual property attorney. We have both written policies and internal practices designed to protect intellectual property.


First, crowdspring's Copyright Policy makes it easy for copyright owners to report alleged violations of their intellectual property rights.


Second, crowdspring's User Agreement prohibits, among other things, people from selling, reproducing, modifying, displaying, preparing derivative works from, reposting, or using the content found on crowdspring.com without the express written permission from the owner of the work.


We have also adopted Standards of Conduct for Creatives and Standards of Conduct for Clients. Each of these policies touches on the importance of intellectual property in our community.

We also make it easy for anyone to submit potential IP violations for review by a trained crowdspring panel. The panel reviews and responds to these submissions in writing, promptly.
