Thanks, Kathy ­ just to clarify that it wasn¹t clear to us (staff) that the
list discussions resulted in agreement to change the type of signatory, from
someone who has to describe the ³nature of his/her authority to speak for
the TM (or copyright) owner², with two illustrative examples (i.e. the
authorization can be to a licensed attorney or a corporate officer), to a
more limited class consisting either of the rights-holder, legal counsel or
a corporate officer. It seemed to us that questions still remained over
issues such as parity and the need to have the request originate from
someone who has performed a legal analysis of the alleged infringement. I
apologize if that is not the case, and am happy to change the draft as
suggested for the call tomorrow.

> So the proposed language as we were discussing it last week should be:
> c)        Signed by the trademark owner (where an individual), the authorized
> legal representative and counsel of the trademark owner (e.g. licensed
> attorney handling the alleged infringement), or corporate officer with signing
> authority (if trademark is owned by a legal entity).
> Ditto for the copyrights. Now we have someone we can trust to submit the
> Reveal Request - and someone we can trust with the personal and sensitive data
> when it is Revealed - a proper authority for accountability!
> Best,
> Kathy
