Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Protection Policy
Clause 1 - Faces, Names and Signatures
Items containing the likeness, image, name, or signature of another person are prohibited, unless the products were made or authorized by the person whose likeness, image, name or signature has been used.
Clause 2 - Replica and Counterfeit Items
Listing of counterfeits, non-licensed replicas, or unauthorized items, such as counterfeit designer garments, watches, handbags, sunglasses, or other accessories, is strictly prohibited on the Sites.
If the products sold bear the name or logo of a company, but did not originate from or were not endorsed by that company, such products are prohibited from the Site.
Listings of branded products are permitted if a certificate of authorisation has been issued by the brand owner.
Listings offering to sell or purchase replicas, counterfeits or other unauthorized items shall be subject to removal by Desk.sg. Repeated listings of counterfeit or unauthorized items shall result in the immediate suspension of your membership.
Clause 3 - Software
Academic software is software sold at discounted prices to students, teachers, and employees of accredited learning institutions.
On the Sites, please do not list any academic software unless you are so authorised. Listings violating Desk.sg's academic software policy may be deleted prior to publication.
For listings of academic software on behalf of an authorized educational reseller or an educational institution, such licensure must be stated conspicuously in the listings. A certificate of authorization issued by the authorised educational reseller (or the educational institution) must also be provided to Desk.sg.
Do not list "OEM" or "bundled" copies of software on the Desk.sg and Desk.global Websites unless you are selling it with computer hardware. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), or bundled software, is software that is obtained as part of the purchase of a new computer. OEM software licenses usually prohibit the purchaser from reselling the software without the computer or, in some cases, without any computer hardware.
Clause 4 - Unauthorised Copies of Intellectual Property
The listing or sale of unauthorised (pirated, duplicated, backup, bootleg, etc.) copies of software programs, video games, music albums, movies, television programs, photographs or other protected works is prohibited on the Sites.
