What Is A Website Takedown?
A website takedown is us officially taking down a competitor’s website if they are infringing on your trademark or copyright.
So if someone decides to steal your intellectual property and put it on their website, you now have the power to stop them.
Once you apply, we’ll take legal action to notify them of the infringement, give them a period to take down the infringed material, and if they fail to do so, have their website shut down by the service provider.
What If I Don’t Takedown An Infringer’s Website?
If you fail to act against infringers, there are 3 main consequences:
1) You have someone else earning money off of your intellectual property that you should be rightfully earning instead.
2) Your potential customers may have their perception of you, your brand, and your products tarnished by low quality copycats.
3) You run the risk of the government considering your patent/trademark/copyright abandoned/invalid.
When Should I Get One?
You should pursue legal action as soon the website is discovered. Waiting can only lead to bad things.
How Does It Work?
1) Fill Out A 5 Minute Form
2) We will pursue legal action on your behalf (this process takes around 2-12 months depending on whether or not your competitor complies).
3) You’re Protected!
How Much Does it Cost?
It costs $49.
How Much Is A Trademark Worth?
Trademarks that are crafted from scratch by attorneys typically run upwards of $2000 but they can be worth a LOT more.
The worth of a trademark depends on the worth of the intellectual property that it protects.
A trademark that protects a multi-million dollar startup can be worth millions. It protects that startup from losing their business’s image to a competitor and losing out on all of that revenue.
So, how much is a trademark worth to you?
It depends on how much your company is worth to you.
