Let us know if someone is using your trademark on Wavelength in a way that’s likely to confuse people about the source of a good or service. If appropriate, we will respond by taking action, e.g. removing a group.
To notify us, you will need to provide us with:
- The trademarked word/symbol in question plus the category of goods and/or services in which you are asserting rights.
- The trademark registration number and country where you claim trademark rights.
- Information that allows us to find the infringing material on Telepath (e.g. a link to a post, reply, network, or user).
- Explain what the problem is: How your trademark is being infringed and what’s causing the confusion (be specific please).
- Explain what you want us to do: Remove a certain post, ban an account, or ask a user to change their name or user profile in some way.
- A statement that:
- You believe in good-faith that this third-party use of the trademark which you are telling us about has not been authorized by the trademark owner.
- You have concluded in good-faith after careful review that the use of the trademark is not fair use.
- That the information in your notice is accurate.
- Your mailing address, telephone number, and email.
- If you aren’t the rightsholder, explain your relationship to the rightsholder.
Send this information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Some important things to know:
- We forward trademark notices to the user in question. For this reason you should be careful about including any personal contact details; use your business address, phone number, and email if possible.
- We may not take action even after you send us a notice. Why? We may decide the user isn’t using your trademark in a way that is confusing. People are allowed to use your company or product name — even if they are negative or critical — as long as it doesn’t confuse people about the source of a good or service. For example, a negative review of your product is not an infringement of your trademark.
