A Porn Company is Using Cirsova’s Name and Amazon Refuses to Act

A company that primarily sells posters of pornographic images and cars on Amazon is selling a poster of a Caspar David Fredriech painting that we posted once years ago and is using the name “Cirsova” in the listing.

Cirsova is a unique word that was not used for anything prior to the existence of this blog, the publishing company and the magazine it publishes.

Amazon’s IP protection department, however, refuses to act, claiming first that we failed to make proper “identification of the intellectual property right asserted” and later claiming that our rights were unenforceable.

All we want is the name “Cirsova” taken out of the product listing; the company can sell their posters and their porn–we just do not want our company and magazine’s name associated with them!

      • Yep, apparently, unless we register it, Amazon will not do anything about it. Looks like getting that done is next on Cirsova’s agenda.

        We gave up on going after the knock-off chinese “Cirsova Black Custom Biker Jackets” because at least those didn’t show up on Amazon’s search results.

  1. Have you asked the offending company to please stop using your name? (ask after registering) All they can say is no. Then you can pursue other measures.
