I have an Etsy shop where I sell jewellery. I received a

Customer Question

Hi, I have an Etsy shop where I sell jewellery. I received a copyright infringement notice from a jewellery seller outside of Etsy and because of that one of my products has been taken down. I get my jewellery from a supplier in China, which means that I don't make the designs myself. I never heard from that company before or knew of their product which is similar to ours. Etsy has advised that I could submit a DMCA counter notice but the company which reported the copyright could take me to court. How can I proceed with this? Do I have a chance to win the case if I submit the counter notice?
