We represent Yale University (“Yale”) with respect to trademark
matters. As you are no doubt
aware, Yale is a famous university that is renowned worldwide. Our client owns trademarks for YALE
and various YALE-formative marks, and has registered these marks with the U.S. Patent
Office and around the world. Yale vigorously enforces its trademarks and unauthorized use of the YALE
mark and name is ***** *****
Our client recently became aware of your use of www.yaletechnologies.tech, which
incorporates Yale’s famous YALE mark as the initial, dominant portion of the domain name, followed by
the generic wording “technologies” for your technology training and consulting services. Your website
also prominently features the YALE mark in the title portion of your homepage, in your logo
throughout your website, as shown below:

Your use of the YALE mark for educational and consulting services will lead consumers seeing
your website to be confused, believing that it is a Yale-run website, or that your website is otherwise
associated with or authorized by our client, when in fact it is not. This is of particular concern to our client
in light of our client’s prior rights and registrations for YALE for its core educational services.
Accordingly, your use of the YALE mark for these services constitutes trademark infringement
use of our client’s intellectual property rights. Your actions are also a violation of ICANN’s Uniform
Dispute Resolution Policy, which you agreed to when you registered the domain name.
In addition, your unauthorized use of Yale’s trademark appears to be a bad faith attempt to
confuse consumers and profit from Yale’s reputation, and we see no legitimate purpose for your use and
registration of this domain name. If our client is forced to take legal action, it will seek all available
remedies, including disgorgement of your profits, our client’s actual damages, and attorney’s fees.
In view of the above, we demand that you immediately shut down and transfer the domain name
www.yaletechnologies.tech to our client. You must also agree in writing to cease all present and future
use of the YALE mark. If you comply with the foregoing, we will be in a position to consider complete
resolution of this matter. Due to the importance of this matter, we look forward to receiving your response
by August 15, 2017.
Very truly yours,***** & SACKS, P.C.
