Re: Trademark Infringement
Dear Sir or Madam:
It has come to our attention that your business,
Our Trademark provides us with certain proprietary rights, including the right to monitor and restrict the unauthorized use of our Trademark, or confusingly similar trademarks, in association with non-Company products or services. We must exercise this right to protect the value of both our Trademark and of our business. Our Trademark signifies the high quality of products and services offered by the Company and indicates to our customers and to the consuming public that all of our goods or services come from a single source. As such, it contributes substantially to the goodwill and value of the Company. Federal law supports our position that confusingly similar trademarks may cause undesirable confusion in the public. This confusion may in this instance cause material and irreparable harm to our Trademark by eroding the distinct association among our Trademark, our products and services, and the Company. Your actions constitute trademark infringement and unfair competition under both state and federal law, including the Lanham Act, (15 U.S.C. §§1051-1127) and the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. Remedies for such infringement can include payment of actual and treble damages, recovery of profits, reimbursement of attorneys' fees, and may also include injunctions against your further use of the Domain Name and the transfer of your Domain Name to the Company.
We respectfully request that you immediately discontinue all use of the Domain Name in association with the marketing, sale, distribution, or identification of your products or services, and that you transfer the registration of the Domain Name to the Company. Please respond to us in writing within

What's a domain name cease and desist letter?
A registered trademark helps to identify your brand and your company to your customers. When someone else uses that name, logo, or in this case, domain name, it creates confusion among your customers and could weaken your brand recognition. This first step in defending that trademark and reaffirming its identification with your business is with a domain name cease and desist letter.
