Knowledgebase: Design Violations
What are copyright and trademark violations?
Posted by Alan Smith on 03 April 2015 04:53 PM

A copyright violation is when a designer bases his/her design off of a pre-existing design. Designers will receive a warning if they are found copying another designer's artwork. A trademark violation is a very serious federal offense. A trademark protects a brand and is registered legally to represent a company. In the event that a designer copies a trademarked design, they will receive a trademark violation point, or worse, depending on the severity of the violation.
