The following are common excuses that WILL NOT stand up in court:
- I didn’t see the copyright © symbol
- I didn’t know it was copyrighted material
- It wasn’t me
- Someone told me to
- I was borrowing not stealing
The following are some of the repercussions for copyright/trademark infringement:
- Infringing website taken down or removed completely from the internet
- Website removed from host servers
- Infringing website removed from Google, Bing, and Yahoo search engines and directories
- Loss of ability to process payments via PayPal, Authorize.net, or any other source
- Responsible for Statutory Damages

- Responsible for all court and attorney fees
- Copyright Infringement is considered theft and an accused person can be charged with theft

If copyright and/or trademark infringement is detected, Clear the Air® has many options, which includes sending a Cease and Desist Letter. Clear the Air® can opt to immediately file a lawsuit demanding statutory damages and lawyer fees.
A Cease and Desist Letter IS NOT mandatory. This letter is a warning to let the infringer know that we plan to aggressively protect our website if the information isn’t removed immediately. If Clear the Air® opts to file a lawsuit, the person and/or company responsible for the infringement may find themselves responsible for extensive attorney fees and court costs just to defend their action.
Don’t be fooled into thinking you won’t get caught. Even the tiniest copyright/trademark infringements are caught. Clear the Air® has invested in strict monitoring of our website and the work within the website. Don’t let being served lawsuit papers be your wake up call.
