I am doing ETSY POD. I made a listing with My Own Design And I Copied The Quotes From Someone Else Listing. And He Filed a Copyright Claim on it. And ETSY removed my Listing.

Is Quotes are Copyrighted?

What Shall I Do? Please Suggest

If the "Quotes" originally made by that person, then he can file a copyright
If you can find the same quote anywhere on public domain(not from the person) you can file for appeal with source

Copyright is a lawful act, not an arguement. They need to provide papers, i am not sure you can copyright words in a printed shirt though unless its a brand.

This is the problem. I am not copying anything from etsy listings. Just don't copy anything at all.
Nothing at all.
But I made my own Design through Canva. Only Added His Quotes.

Ex: Apple is Good For Health.... etc etc

Is That Became Copyrighted. Since I Have Written by myself

Etsy don't spend time figuring out copyright issue, listing by listing. It delists/ban sellers.

Welcome to the world of POD. Its what you have to deal with every so often if you are using other people for "inspiration"

Are short phrases protected? Copyright protects original works of authorship that have been independently created and that are the product of some minimal degree of creativity. Words and short phrases, such as names, titles, and slogans are generally not protected, even if they are original or distinctive.

What Shall I Do Now?
Shall I Appeal
Since The Listing Was Very Low Competitive And I Have Got Many Sales on It.

I am new to etsy like one month new.
If I was you I would first protect my account and remove any listing that could get potentially my account suspended.
I would do all blackhat stuff on stealth etsy accounts if at all.

Why you steal other peoples quotes? Create own inspirational ones or whatever you need. Or hire a thoughtful person to create hundreds of quotes for you. creative.
