I am the IP Enforcement Director of Lacoste Alligator USA Inc., a subsidiary of Lacoste Alligator, S.A., ("Lacoste), owner of the famous LACOSTE and Crocodile Logo trademarks (the "LACOSTE Marks"). It has recently come to our attention that you provide services to a website www.lacoste-shop.ru, which is offering counterfeit Lacoste merchandise for sale. Such unauthorized uses infringe and dilute the famous Lacoste Marks in violation of Sections 32 and 43(a) and (c) of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. §§1114 and 1125 (a) and (c), and in violation of our rights under the common law. These laws entitle Lacoste to extensive remedies, including preliminary and permanent injunctions, recovery of profits, treble damages and attorneys' fees or other statutory damages. This is a matter of immediate concern to Lacoste, S.A. The LACOSTE Marks, which have been in use since 1935, are among the best known designer sportswear trademarks in the U.S. and throughout the world. Through an enormous investment of time and effort, and extensive advertising and promotion over many years, the LACOSTE Marks have come to be associated exclusively with Lacoste and its goods and represent an enormous goodwill. Lacoste also owns numerous registrations for its LACOSTE Marks in the U.S. and abroad for a wide range of apparel, accessories and other goods and services, including U.S. Reg. Nos. 879,171 and 1,218,448 for LACOSTE and U.S. Reg. Nos. 1,084,409; 1,108,987; 1,178,236 and 2,004,314 for the Crocodile Logos. All of the foregoing registrations have become incontestable pursuant to Section 33(b) of the U.S. Trademark (Lanham) Act and, as a matter of law, constitute conclusive evidence of Lacoste's exclusive right to use these marks for the goods identified in its registrations. 15 U.S.C. § 1115(b). Only Lacoste and those authorized by Lacoste are entitled to use the LACOSTE Marks or to offer goods bearing the LACOSTE Marks. Neither lacoste-shop.ru, nor the registrant of the lacoste-shop.ru domain name has ever received any such authorization. Given that lacoste-shop.ru is selling counterfeit merchandise bearing one or more of the LACOSTE Marks through your service, we ask for your written confirmation within ten business days that you will immediately cease providing services to the owner of the website until content relating to the LACOSTE Marks is removed. Please respond either by e-mail to EMAIL or by U.S. mail to the address listed below. This letter is without prejudice to Lacoste Alligator S.A.'s rights and remedies, all of which are expressly reserved.
