Intellectual Property Rights of PaintMyTee and Third Parties
What is this that we call intellectual property?
In Malaysia, we are governed by the Trade Marks Act 1976.
At PaintMyTee we are committed to protect the rights of these owners and as such will not print designs that are copyrights of third party or whose designs are trademarked by other individuals/companies. To make things simple, we will clarify these further below.
In PaintMyTee, we are concerned with two intellectual property right called trademarks and copyrights.
A copyright is protection for a “creative work” – a painting, book, photo, piece of music etc. It prohibits anyone but the holder from publishing or distributing it without his consent.
A trademark is a symbol used as a sign or logo under which a company does business. When registered, no other business can use it. (McDonald’s “Golden Arches”, for example, are a registered trademark)
PaintMyTee is committed to the appropriate and legal use of the intellectual property of others, and we require our users to behave similarly.
