Copyright
Text, graphics, and HTML code are protected by US and International Copyright Laws, and may not be copied, reprinted, published, translated, hosted, or otherwise distributed by any means without explicit permission."

While copyright was not an issue historically and was not therefore mentioned in the classical books of Islamic law (fiqh), contemporary Islamic scholars, like the world-renowned Mufti Taqi Usmani, have confirmed that copyright laws do have a place in Islam, and that it is not permissible to take advantage of the labors of others by appropriating their work without permission.

HijabGirl, in accordance with Islamic law and US and international statute, therefore defends the copyright of all text, graphics and programming code on its website.

How do we defend our copyright?
We take all necessary measures to defend our copyright:

First Step
We request that the copyright violator remove our copyright material within 24 hours. We explain the above mentioned points in a nice, polite way, assuming that the person doesn't realize the wrongdoing of their actions.

Second Step
If the material still hasn't been removed, we write to the violator's Internet Service Provider informing them that they are hosting a website that is displaying our copyright material without our permission. This can result in the ISP removing the violator's account because the ISP also becomes liable for hosting copyright material. We may also inform Google in which case Google may remove the offending website from their search results.

Final Step
We take legal action against the violator. We have our own attorney and we take the necessary steps to defend our copyright. It's a shame when it comes to this stage and HijabGirl is extremely reluctant to take legal action against a fellow Muslim. But by this stage, the violator of our copyright has obviously shown little regard for our rights under Islamic law, and we have to take all appropriate steps to protect our business. Everything on our website is legally copyright material according to US and International Law.

How do we catch copyright violators?
Actually, it's quite easy. We simply do a search on the internet every few weeks and then go through all the websites that sell similar products to us.
