Craftsvilla Policy

Craftsvilla does not allow copyrighted content to be used in the listing - text or images. When you prepare your listings you should use only material (text, photographs, etc.) and trademarks/names that you created or own yourself, or have licensed from the owners. You cannot link to somebody else's picture (so it appears in your listing) without the owner's permission. If we find listings which have been copied from some other sellers listings – text / photographs, Craftsvilla holds the right to end the listings immediately and restrict / suspend seller as deemed fit.

Be honest and creative! If you've invented and produced something, you can put it up for sale on Craftsvilla. It's okay to be inspired, but be honest and don't use anyone else's intellectual work for your own commercial purposes.

If you're using a pattern or instructions from a magazine or the Internet, find out if you're allowed to use this design (even in an altered form) for commercial purposes. The regular sale of articles is commercial.
If you find your content being copied please report to our Customer Support.
Hand crafted items which have not been copy righted as per the Indian Copyrights Act 1957, won’t be covered. It is possible that few items are similar in nature and can be listed by different sellers. These are allowed unless the exact text / images are not copied.
