"Zeur: and I'm assuming that all the copy right Nike logos at the top of the catalog haven't actually been reviewed by imvu as per Nike should know about
Jhoda Louise: Only the intellectual property rights owner or the owner's authorized agent is permitted to report potentially infringing materials through IMVU's reporting system. If you are not the intellectual property rights owner or the owner's authorized agent, you should contact the intellectual property rights owner and they can choose whether to use the procedures set forth in the Terms of Service.
Zeur: So maybe I should tell Nike?
Zeur: and they can deal with it?
Zeur: in a law suit?
Zeur: why is it not being stopped before this happens?
Jhoda Louise: Yes, please contact them and it will be their decision to send us copyright infringement notice.
Jhoda Louise: Generally we only take proactive actions when offenses are egregious. The copyright owner has the right to file a claim against any product they feel is a violation of their intellectual property
Zeur: so what you are saying
Zeur: is you have free right to copy righted material as a company?
Zeur: so long as the owner does not know about it.
Jhoda Louise: Only the intellectual property rights owner or the owner's authorized agent is permitted to report potentially infringing materials through IMVU's reporting system

Jhoda Louise: If that's what you think, is there anything else?
Zeur: nope. that will be all.

This is a problem that I have been trying to battle with imvu for a long period of time now. They have been allowing their creators to use copyrighted materials without the company's permissions because the company cannot step in. They expect the company to go onto their website and scout out all the people who are copyrighting themselves. Instead of IMVU as a company stepping in to stop it. IMVU gives the opportunity for creators to get money instead of credits for their creations on IMVU. This gives the people that do this the opportunity to make money off of the Nike/Adidas/DC/Converse/Vans/HBA etc logos without permissions of the owners though imvu knows its against the Law.
