How to Report Infringement to DocuSign
Trademark infringement is improper or unauthorized use of a trademark in a way that is likely to cause confusion as to the source of products or services. DocuSign respects intellectual property rights and asks its users to do the same.
If you are a trademark owner and you believe your trademark is being infringed in connection with DocuSign services, we recommend that you try to contact the individual responsible for the infringement. You may submit a trademark infringement notice to DocuSign if you (i) are unable to contact the relevant individual or to reach a resolution with that individual; and (ii) are the owner of the trademark in question or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner.
DocuSign will apply limited review to reasonable complaints and will remove content that appears to be clearly infringing. Please note that to encourage communication and prompt resolution your complaint (and any contact information included) may be provided to the individual that your complaint identifies as the source or cause of the infringement.
Trademark infringement notices should include a level of detail that allows DocuSign to ascertain the owner of the trademark(s) in question and the source/location of the infringing uses as well as a penalty of perjury statement as to ownership or right to act on behalf of the owner. They may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DocuSign respects the intellectual property rights of others and asks its users to do the same.
