We reserve the right at our discretion to refuse or delete content that we believe is inappropriate or breaching the above terms. We also reserve the right at our discretion to restrict a user’s usage of the site either temporarily or permanently, or refuse a user’s registration.
Create your own listing content
Don’t “borrow” text or images (including photos) from other listings on Australian Business Times Directory, manufacturers’ websites, third-party product catalogs, or other sources without specific permission from the owner. Contrary to popular belief, simply because images and text can be found somewhere on the Internet, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t protected by copyright laws. Copyright laws apply to the Internet, and manufacturers or other copyright owners may object to the use of text or images that they own or have created. Write your own descriptive text for your listing and take your own photos.
Make sure the statements in your listing are accurate
Make sure that all statements and claims in your listing are true and complete. Rights owners may object to listings that contain false, inaccurate, or misleading claims about their brands or products. If you’re not sure if a statement you want to make is allowed or is true, double-check it and rely only on credible sources. Someone on a message board may sound like they know what they’re talking about, but you’re the one who will be responsible for the content.
Making sure your listing is accurate and complete will not only help you avoid intellectual property concerns, it will also help buyers understand what they’re buying, eliminating miscommunications that might lead to a poor transaction and negative Feedback.
Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties, This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark (e.g. offering counterfeit items for sale).

Entitled parties, in particular the owners of copyright, trademark rights or other rights owned by third parties can report any offers which many infringe on their rights, and submit a request for this offer to be removed. If a legal representative of the entitled party reports this to us in the correct manner, products infringing on the intellectual property rights will be removed by Australian Business Times Directory.
