Filing an Intellectual Property Claim

The IP Claim Form is available for individuals who would like to report infringement on their legally registered artwork. Only use this form if you have a copyright or trademark registration number or if you are making a claim regarding a design of yours that you do not sell on Teespring.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Your claim, including the personal contact information you provide, will be forwarded directly to the alleged infringer. Filing an IP claim form is a formal threat of legal action against the alleged infringer. The alleged infringer has a right to contest the allegation and part of that is knowing the identity of the accuser.

We aim to respond to all form submissions within 24 – 48 business hours. Once we have reviewed your case, you will be notified of the outcome.

In order to expedite the process, all IP claims must be submitted via our Notice and Takedown Report Form (linked above). In the event you have technical difficulties with the form, please reach out to ipescalations@teespring.com.
