A trademark is a distinct sign, design, or expression that identifies the products and services of a person or business enterprise. In general, a trademark is infringed when it is used by someone other than the trademark holder in order to confuse the public.
Scribd is sensitive to trademark infringement, however Scribd is not in a position to mediate trademark disputes between our members and trademark holders. Scribd will provide limited guidance to help trademark holders to facilitate direct contact with alleged infringers.
Scribd will remove content upon receipt of compelling proof of trademark infringement, however Scribd reserves the right to return trademark claims that are designed to circumvent more appropriate copyright infringement removal requirements. The removal of alleged copyright infringements requires the receipt of a valid DMCA notification, regardless of whether the document contains a “trademarked” word or phrase.
The bar is considerably higher for Scribd usernames. A trademark holder must demonstrate a compelling reason why a Scribd username is intended to confuse the reader into believing that the account belongs to the trademark holder before Scribd will force a change to the account holder’s username.
Claims of trademark infringement can be sent by mail to:
Scribd, Inc. Attn: Scribd DMCA copyright infringement notification 333 Bush Street Suite 2400 San Francisco, CA 94104 USA
or fax to:
