Campaign was taken down for copyright infringement, when it was just a sentence. JonathanJonathan

Hello, 
About 2 weeks ago I got an email that 2 of my campaigns were suspended for "using content owned by a third party."

Both of those campaigns were just simple text: just a sentence which said "it's going to be ok". How can this be owned by a third party?
It was not a design, I didnt use any graphic, just words.
AFAIK there's no trademark or company which owns these words. 
Besides, 25% of my earnings for those campaigns were going to a charity organization. 

I sent an email to [email protected] a week ago, but still no response.

Why my design which only had words was taken down? No one owns words "it's going to be ok", the third party claim was bogus.

Are claims checked or you take down every reported campaign?

    Hi Jonathan,

    We have answered to this in your previous post as well. 
    I have checked your suspended campaigns and they do have copyrighted content (one is from GOT and the other is a copy from another sellers campaign)

    I'm sorry but does that seller own the copyrights of the words "going to be ok"? Because the email sent to me was for copyright infringement. 

    I read the T&C carefully. I'm a paralegal myself. I didn't infringe any copyright because you can't copyright dictionary words.

    If Teespring has a policy that 2 campaigns cannot be the same, that is not written on the T&C. Besides, it was not a copy paste. I did my own design
