1.    identification of the Mark(s) alleged to have been infringed, including (i) for registered Marks, a copy of each relevant trademark registration certificate or (ii) for common law or other Marks, evidence sufficient to establish your claimed rights in the Mark, including the nature of your use of the Mark, and the time period and geographic area in which the Mark has been used by you;

A registered user may respond to notice of takedown by showing either (a) that the Mark has been cancelled, or has expired or lapsed or (b) that the registered user has a trademark registration, an unexpired license covering the use, or some other relevant right to the Mark, or (c) that the use is for other reasons shown by the registered user non-infringing. If the registered user makes an appropriate showing of either (a), (b) or (c) then MAC may exercise its discretion not to remove the Mark. If MAC decides to comply with a takedown request, it will do so within a commercially reasonable period of time after receipt of the notification. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MAC will comply as appropriate with the terms of any court order relating to alleged trademark infringement on the Service.

Upon receipt of notice as described above, MAC will seek to confirm the existence of the IP on the Service, notify the registered user who posted the content including the IP, and take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including temporary or permanent removal of the IP from the Service. A registered user may respond to notice of takedown by showing either (a) that the claimant does not own the IP or (b) that the IP is not infringed. If the registered user succeeds in showing either (a), (b) or (c) then MAC may exercise its discretion not to remove the IP. If MAC decides to comply with a takedown request, it will do so within a commercially reasonable period of time after receipt of the notice.
