We Do Not Enforce
Catalogue content ownership and image restrictions: When a detail item page is created, it becomes a permanent artifact in the Souq.com catalog. It will remain in the catalogue even if the creator's offers sells out.
It is important to also realize that when you content is submitted to the Souq.com catalogue, even if you are the original copyright owner of images and text copy, you grant Souq.com and its affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to exercise all rights of publicity over the material.
Other marketplace sellers can list their offers for sale against catalogue items that you have created or added your copyrighted images and text to as long as it is an exact match. If you believe sellers are listing against catalogue items that do not exactly match their items, we ask that you report the violation to legalEGY@souq.com.
If your intellectual property content has been added to our catalog without your consent, please follow the instructions for Brand, Copyright, and Trademark Owners to report the content.
