Dear Sir,KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON ® is now a Registered as Community Trademark (CTM) Registration No:(NNN) NNN-NNNNin our name: Keep Calm and Carry On Ltd. A CTM Registration gives the Owner of the Registration the exclusive right throughout the whole of the European Community (including the United Kingdom) to use the Trademark in connection with any of the Goods for which it is registered. It is an unlawful Infringement of CTM Registration No: 945619, without our permission, to apply the Trademark KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON ® to goods for which it is Registered or to their packaging, or to import such goods where the Trademark has been applied to those goods or to their packaging. If you have received a Take-Down Notice from eBay regarding goods advertised on eBay, this is because the goods concerned fall within the goods of CTM Registration No:(NNN) NNN-NNNN and we believe either • that you have applied the Trademark to those goods or their packaging or had the Trademark applied for you, or • that you have imported such goods where the Trademark has been applied to those goods or to their packaging. It is also a Criminal Offence as well as an unlawful Infringement knowingly to manufacture or supply Counterfeit Goods, namely goods essentially the same as goods supplied by Keep Calm and Carry On Ltd to which or to the packaging of which the Trademark has been applied.Our legal team are working closely with aBay and their Vero programme enforcing our rights against any infringement with sellers.We take any wrongful threats of action against us, in any form with the utmost seriousness and will take appropriate action as required. Your emails will be filled with the Lawyers that represent us. We request that you, or the Solicitors that act on your behalf correspond in writing with the Lawyers that deal with our business and legal affairs. Their contact details will be provided upon request. Yours,Keep Calm and Carry On Ltd.
