Re: Unauthorized Use of NBA Intellectual Property

To Whom It May Concern:

I write on behalf of NBA Properties, Inc. (“NBAP”) in connection with the unauthorized use of intellectual property belonging to the National Basketball Association (the “NBA”) and its member teams used prominently in FireFox personas (“the Infringing Content”).

NBAP maintains the exclusive worldwide right to license for commercial and promotional purposes all intellectual property of the NBA and its member teams, including but not limited to, the words, names, nicknames, identifying slogans, symbols, emblems, uniform designs, logos, game action photographs, game action video, trade dress colors, and other identifications of the NBA and its member teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat (collectively, “NBA Intellectual Property”). No commercial use can be made of NBA Intellectual Property without the prior written consent of NBAP.

The Infringing Content features NBA Intellectual Property, including, the NBA and its member teams logos.

The Infringing Content is being made available for download without authorization at:

L.A. Lakers V1.0

Detroit Pistons NBA Revised

Los Angeles Lakers

Boston Celtics NBA

NBA Chicago Bulls

Detroit Pistons NBA v2

the los angeles lakers

NBA True Blue

NBA Team Shirts

sct nba

Accordingly, we ask that you immediately remove the unauthorized use of NBA Intellectual Property on or in connection with the Infringing Content, including the immediate removal of the themes from the FireFox website.

I have good faith that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the NBA, NBA Properties, Inc, its agents or the law, and that the
information in this notice is accurate.

I declare under penalty or perjury under the laws of the United States of America that I am authorized to act on behalf of all the aforementioned entities.

If you have any questions, please contact me and the information provided above.
