We strongly believe in the rights of copyright holders and are against illegally obtained data for the sole purposes of profit. While ZipLeaf based websites owned and operated solely by Netcode, Inc. do generate so revenue from advertisements served by Google, 24/7 Real Media, The Performance Network, and other advertising platforms the ZipLeaf websites are very far from profitable. Effective September 1, 2009 we no longer serve advertisements directly, all advertisements contained on ZipLeaf websites are automated through the above mentioned ad networks.
ZipLeaf websites are originally seeded from licensed data purchased from third-party data suppliers. We have absolutely NO control over how that data is collected, whether by legal or illegal methods. We do our best to first research these companies and determine if the data is legally obtained however we can't be 100% certain.

As our data is sent to us from third-party data supplying companies, we are not liable for any copyright infringements. We will however investigate and if deemed true we will remove any infringing listings as well as supply to you the names of the data suppliers as well as proof of purchases and contact information.
If you are not associated with a lawfirm or copyright protection firm, we can not respond to any notices. We suggest you contact a lawyer or copyright protection agent for assistance with dealing with us.
Sometimes copyright holders insert false data into their websites to catch data scrapers. A minimum of 3 false listings must be found on ZipLeaf websites in order for us to seriously act upon the claim. We need sufficent proof that these listings are indeed false data.
