Intellectual Property Policy

 

Extrema Sports Network is committed to helping people and organizations protect their intellectual property rights. The Extrema Sports Network Intellectual Property Policy do not allow posting content that violates someone else’s intellectual property rights, including copyright and trademark.

 

Copyright

Copyright is a legal right that seeks to protect original works of authorship (example: books, music, film, art). Generally, Copyright protects original expression such as words or images. It does not protect facts and ideas, although it may protect the original words or images used to describe an idea. Copyright also doesn’t protect things like names, titles and slogans; however, another legal right called a Trademark might protect those.

 

Trademark

A Trademark is a word, slogan, symbol or design (example: brand name, logo) that distinguishes the products or services offered by one person, group or company from another. Generally, Trademark Law seeks to prevent confusion among consumers about who provides or is affiliated with a product or service.

 

What is Trademark Infringement?

Generally, Trademark Infringement occurs when all three of the following requirements are met:

  1. A company or person uses a trademark owner’s trademark (or similar trademark) without permission.

  2. That use is in commerce, meaning that it’s done in connection with the sale or promotion of goods or services.

  3. That use is likely to confuse consumers about the source, endorsement or affiliation of the goods or services.

 
The touchstone of Trademark Infringement is often “likelihood of confusion,” and there are many factors that determine if a use of a trademark is likely to cause confusion. For example, when a person’s trademark is also used by someone else, but on unrelated goods or services, that use may not be infringement because it may not cause confusion. Which party used the trademark first can often be an important consideration as well.

There are also many limits to trademark rights that can preclude a trademark infringement claim. These include, among other things, geographic limitations, as well as the ability for someone to use your trademark to lawfully comment on or criticize your goods or services.

Please note that the law in different countries relating to Trademark Rights and Trademark Infringement can vary. If you’re not sure if a particular use of a trademark would be considered infringement, you may want to seek legal advice.

 

Trademark Dilution

Trademark Dilution may also be unlawful in certain countries. Dilution, which applies to famous trademarks, may occur in certain circumstances when a trademark is used without permission in commerce. Examples of Trademark Dilution can include blurring (using the mark for unrelated goods or services in a way that weakens the distinctiveness of the mark) or tarnishment (using the mark in an unflattering or offensive way).

 

How do I report trademark infringement on Extrema Sports Network?

Extrema Sports Network can’t adjudicate disputes between third parties, and so we wouldn’t be in a position to act on Trademark reports that require an in-depth Trademark analysis or a real-world dispute outside of Extrema Sports Network. In these situations, rather than contacting Extrema Sports Network, you may want to reach out directly to the party that you believe is infringing your rights or seek any resolution in court or by other judicial means. If you’re sure you want to report content on Extrema Sports Network that you believe infringes your Trademark, you can do so by reaching us directly.

Please note that submitting a claim of Trademark Infringement is a serious matter with potential legal consequences. Before you submit a report, you may want to send a message to the person who posted the content and resolve the issue with them directly. You may be able to resolve the issue without contacting Extrema Sports Network.

Remember, only the Trademark owner or their authorized representative may file a report of Trademark Infringement. If you believe something on Extrema Sports Network infringes someone else’s Trademark, you may want to let the rights owner know.

Please note that we regularly provide the rights owner’s name, your email and the details of your report to the person who posted the content you are reporting. This person may contact you with the information you provide. You may wish to provide a valid generic business or professional email for this reason.
 

How can I make sure the content I post to Extrema Sports Network doesn’t violate Trademark Law?

Under Extrema Sports Network’s Intellectual Property Policy, you can only post content to Extrema Sports Network if it doesn’t violate someone else’s Intellectual Property Rights, including Trademarks. Please note that as an Extrema Sports Network user, you are responsible for the content you post. If your content violates Extrema Sports Network’s policies or is reported to Extrema Sports Network as infringing the Intellectual Property Rights of another party, Extrema Sports Network may remove that content.

 

Before you post content, you might want to ask:

  • Have I used someone else’s Trademark to sell or promote goods or services in a way that may confuse people?

  • Does my use of a Trademark only refer to someone else’s goods or services, or make some other type of non-infringing use of the Trademark (example: using a trademarked word in its ordinary dictionary meaning, or using the trademark in a way that is not related to the sale or promotion of products or services)?

 If you have questions about Trademark Law or whether your content infringes another party’s Trademark Rights, you may want to seek legal advice.

 

Can I report an infringement of someone else’s intellectual property on Extrema Sports Network?

Only an Intellectual Property Rights owner or their authorized representative may report a suspected infringement. If you believe content on Extrema Sports Network infringes someone else’s Copyright or Trademark Rights, you may want to let the rights owner know.
