If you believe someone is using your registered trademark in an unauthorized way on GitHub, please fill out the form below to submit a Trademark Policy Violation report to request that the content be changed or removed. Before you begin, please read GitHub's Trademark Policy.
As with all legal matters, it is always best to consult with a professional about your specific questions or situation. We strongly encourage you to do so before taking any action that might impact your rights. Our guides aren't legal advice and shouldn't be taken as such.
In order to prevent unnecessary processing delays, please note the following before submitting your notice:
- As a first step, please inquire within your company to determine if the account or repository you are reporting may actually be owned one of your coworkers. This is often the fastest way to resolve things. Don't send duplicate notices.
- If you believe multiple accounts or repositories are infringing the same trademarked content, you may include links to those accounts or repositories in a single notice. However, be sure to provide a separate and detailed description of confusion for each instance of trademark infringement you are reporting. Please ensure your notice includes an adequate description of confusion for each alleged infringement. Please note that mere mention of your brand name or trademarked term is not, in itself, a violation of our Trademark policy.
- Our Trademark Policy Violation process is intended only for trademarked content. If you are reporting code or content that is protected by copyright, please review our Copyright - DMCA Takedown Policy. If you are seeking the removal of data that is sensitive of poses a security risk to you or your organization, please review our Sensitive Data Removal Policy.
