Reporting an infringement:
In order to participate in the Notice of Infringement Programme, you only need to complete a Notice of Infringement Form and email it to iEthical. You can use this form, complete with your signature, to report advertisements which may infringe on your property rights. The information requested in the Notice of Infringement Form is for the purpose of ensuring that the parties reporting these objects are either the entitled party or their officially authorized representative. This information must also enable iEthical to identify the advertisement to be removed. Once we have received your correctly completed Notice of Infringement Form, you can simply send later reports to iEthical via the e-mail address provided.
Note: This form can only be used by the lawful owners of the relevant intellectual property rights.
