Respect Trademark/Service Mark Rights
Using a service mark or trademark (collectively, “trademark”) without the trademark owner’s permission on the Website in a manner that may mislead or confuse others about who you are or your brand affiliation may violate TipSnaps.com’s Trademark Policy.
How Do You Report a Violation?
When asserting a trademark violation, you should identify the allegedly infringing work and the legal basis for your claim, including the registration or application numbers for your trademark (if applicable).
Specifically, please provide a report to email@example.com that includes the following information:
We only investigate reports from a trademark owner or authorized agent.
How Does TipSnaps.com Process Trademark Reports?
On receipt of a report, we do the following:
Don’t Impersonate Others!
You are free to parody, marvel, and rain praise on others, but you cannot pretend to be any other person or company.
Thus, don’t do things that would cause confusion between you (or your community) and a person or company.
What is Not a Violation of this Policy?
Any reference to another’s trademark is not an automatic violation. For example, I love Pepsi!
It is permissible for an account holder to use a trademark in a manner that is outside the scope of the trademark owner’s rights. For example, a service mark for accounting services likely will not apply to entertainment activities.
You can use someone’s trademark to refer to their goods or services—just not in a way that confuses other users about whose trademark it is. In other words, nominative and other fair uses of trademarks do not violate this policy. However, an account holder that uses a trademark must clearly distinguish itself from the trademark owner.
