Notification of Trademark Infringement

If you believe that your trademark (the "Infringed Mark") is being used by a user in a way that constitutes trademark infringement, please provide The Wedding Lens's Copyright Agent (specified above) with the following information:
  1. Your physical or electronic signature, or a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on your behalf;
  2. Information reasonably sufficient to permit The Wedding Lens to contact you or your authorized agent, including a name, address, telephone number and, if available, an email address;
  3. Identification of the Infringed Mark(s) claimed to have been infringed, including (i) for registered Infringed Marks, a copy of each relevant federal trademark registration certificate or (ii) for common law Infringed Marks, evidence sufficient to establish the time period and geographic area in which the Infringed Mark has been used by you;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit The Wedding Lens to identify the use being challenged;
  5. A statement that you have not authorized the challenged use, and that you have a good-faith belief that the challenged use is not authorized by law; and

Upon receipt of notice as described above, The Wedding Lens will confirm the existence of the Infringed Mark on the Site, notify the Registered User who posted the Infringed Mark, and take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the Infringed Mark from the Site. A Registered User may respond to notice of takedown by showing either (a) that the Infringed Mark has been cancelled, or has expired or lapsed or (b) that the Registered User has a trademark registration, an unexpired license covering the use, or some other relevant right to the Infringed Mark. If the Registered User succeeds in showing either (a) or (b) then The Wedding Lens will not remove the Infringed Mark. If The Wedding Lens decides to comply with a takedown request, it will do so within a commercially reasonable time after receipt of the notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, The Wedding Lens will comply as appropriate with the terms of any court order relating to alleged trademark infringement on the Site.
