Half.com Policies - Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program
Protecting Intellectual Property
Half.com does not and cannot verify that sellers have the right or ability to sell or distribute their listed items. However, we are committed to removing infringing or unlicensed items once an authorized representative of the rights owner properly reports them to us. Half.com's Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program works to ensure that items listed for sale do not infringe upon the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of third parties. VeRO Program participants may identify and request removal of allegedly infringing listings.
Reporting an item to Half.com
If you have a good faith belief that an item or listing infringes on your intellectual property rights, you can report the alleged infringement to Half.com by submitting a Notice of Claimed Infringement (NOCI) to Half.com's VeRO program.
Please print out the form and email/fax a physically signed form to us at the contact information below. Be sure to include the complete URL and the seller's User ID for the specific item you wish to report in your notice. You can obtain the item URL by clicking on the Comment provided by specific seller as located to the right of their user ID and feedback rating. 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.
