Getting flagged for infringement is one thing but actually getting sued for it is a whole other ballgame. Unfortunately, Lisa of Lisa’s Little Monsters experienced this firsthand and suffered through the troubles associated with having to actually take listings down and cease business, which at the time was indefinitely. I’m glad Lisa was so willing to share her story so that we may all learn a bit more about this process and the consequences of this reality many sellers have faced – even when they weren’t doing anything that they felt was wrong or questionable or using licensed characters.
In this episode:
- Meet Lisa | Lisa’s Etsy shop
- Lisa tells us about her experience
- We discuss the reality of being sued, like, actually having to pay money to someone!!
- Lawyers, royalties and movie deals oh my!
