Sign and submit form

By typing in my name (electronic signature), I represent that: (1) I have a good faith belief that the use of the intellectual property infringement(s) in the manner described above constitutes intellectual property infringement, is not authorized by the intellectual property owner or its agent, and is not otherwise permissible under the law; (2) all information in this form is true and accurate; and (3) I am legally authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property.

What is not covered here?

Organic search results (non-sponsored results)

Microsoft does not remove organic search results in response to a trademark complaint. The content of websites appearing in organic search results is wholly controlled by the website’s owner. Please raise any objection about the content of such websites directly with the owner of that website.

Issues in ads other than intellectual property

The forms above are specifically for reporting complaints related to intellectual property infringement. If you have found an occurrence of a low-quality ad on Microsoft Bing or Yahoo, please fill out the Low quality ad submission & escalation form to report spam or malicious ads.
