Some forms of your trademark use in the content counts for “fair use”. Trademark law protects business names and brands for selling products and services in order to prevent consumer confusion. In most countries, the law includes an exception for the “fair use”, allowing others to use a trademark for referencing the trademarked product or service, commenting on, or criticizing the trademark. Consider the likelihood that Cyber Bricks visitors would be confused into thinking that your company or brand has created or is sponsoring the content. Before submitting a trademark takedown notice, make sure that the use of your trademark does not qualify as “fair use.”
We understand that when you publish and make your content available on Cyber Bricks, you wish to ensure that the content will not be offered on a different platform without your authorisation. To combat copyright infringement and piracy, we have partnered with an anti-piracy service provider. They will seek instances of infringement and have them removed from the major search engines to stop traffic from distribution.
In the event you spot your course on another website without your prior permission, please email us at the address at the end of this document, entitling it “third-party piracy,” so that we can pursue action.
