We respect the intellectual property rights of others, and our terms and policies prohibit posting content that violates another party’s intellectual-property rights. In appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, we may remove or disable access to material that infringes the intellectual-property rights of others and restrict, block, ban, or terminate members who may be repeat infringers.
We have adopted a copyright policy consistent with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to block access to or remove content that we believe in good faith to be infringing, based on a bona fide notification that complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Note that under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our members, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that content or activity is infringing. If you are unclear whether the content at issue is infringing, you should consider contacting an attorney.
We may, as a courtesy to trademark owners, conduct a limited inquiry of reasonable complaints of trademark infringement. Our determination of whether the reported content is a violation of our trademark policy depends on both the content that is being used and the context in which it is being used.
Using a business name, logo, or other protected content in a way that is confusing or misleading may be a violation of our trademark policy. It is not a violation of our trademark policy to use a business name or logo, or other content in a way that is outside the scope protected by trademark rights. This scope is generally limited by the geography (such as one or more countries) and products (goods and services) covered by the trademark. It is also not a violation of our policy to make proper “fair use” of another’s trademark.
