Copyright & Intellectual Property (DMCA)
At Local Vyntage, we’re all about sharing cherished memories back with those who experienced them first-hand. Like our customers, special moments from our past mean a lot to us. So, it’s important we take a lot of care in how we select and pursue designs that end up on our apparel. From doing thorough research to reaching out to surviving connections to these local icons, we're proud of the work we put in to respect, honor, and do right by the memories that make every town tick. When any potential conflict is discovered, we are proactive in finding solutions – even if that sometimes means walking away.
Local Vyntage takes intellectual property rights very seriously. We comply with intellectual property laws and industry best practices to maintain the integrity of our brand and product offerings. All Local Vyntage designs go through a careful and thorough intellectual property review before they're made available to the marketplace.
The intellectual property information on this page will explain how we address allegations of infringement, how authorized parties can submit proper notices of infringement and how we'll respond to any such notice.
