Riddle Patent Law / Esquiretrademarks.com succeeded in removing 176 pirated videos of a proprietary training course from YouTube. The course video was leaked by a student and posted on YouTube. Using the DMCA copyright takedown tool, the leaked proprietary training course was swiftly removed for an overseas client. Registered and unregistered trademark claims were also made in support of the takedown.
Concurrently, a temporary restraining order was prepared to petition the United States District Court for injunctive relief. A significant amount of time and expense was saved for the client through effective use of the available DMCA and trademark takedown tools. The average time to a TRO hearing is 8 days, while the takedown tools obtained the same result in less than 36 hours.
