InMotion Hosting emails us a Trademark Violation letter?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I have received the letter below from keywords{at}

For which I had replied:

“Which keyword/s are we bidding on that’s trademarked? I’m not aware of bidding on any brand specific keywords. Have you sent us this in error?”

I have not received a response as of yet. I know for sure that we do not bid on any trademarked or branded keywords so I want to know why we have received this email from InMotion Hosting in the first place. We are not and never have been a client of InMotion.


We are writing to let you know that you are bidding competitively in multiple search engines

and shopping bots for keywords that involve the InMotion Hosting trademark or phrases related

thereto. We’re sure there was no harm meant, but this is a violation of the search engines and shopping

bots’ bidding policies, and of trademark laws.

Therefore, in order to protect InMotion Hosting’s trademark, we must ask that you cease and desist all

such bidding immediately, and notify us in writing that you have done so.

If you fail to make the changes to your bidding process, we may have to take legal action.

Thank you very much for your prompt assistance in this matter, please contact us with any questions.

Best Regards,

Trademark Team

InMotion Hosting, Inc.
