shame.

i checked with etsy, and it seems as though they cannot handle this matter for the artist themselves, it’s up to the person who may be getting ripped off to stand up first.  good to know:

 If you see a copyright violation, the best and most effective thing to
do is alert the person who is infringed upon. If they decide that it is
something they want to take seriously, then that will be their choice.
It is speculated that some companies do not pursue copyright on purpose
because the spread of their name helps them.

This does not mean Etsy disregards Copyright. This only means that every
owner of a copyright has different interpretations of what they want,
and it is only within their right to speak for it. Etsy simply offers
information on copyright if we do not hear from the infringed. (-from etsyadmin)
