I wonder if you have any thoughts on this. We own a trademark for our site name and we occasionally search for people using the name and tell them to cut it out. Some people are using the name in various ways to try to get random affiliate sales, like by making a youtube video with nothing but our name along with "scam" and then a still graphic saying "To find out more about whether or not this is a scam, click the link below". Then they include an affiliate link to us. How would you recommend dealing with this or would you recommend doing anything at all?
I hate to spend too much time on it, but even though they are linking to our products with an affiliate link, their tactics are kind of disgusting...
Also, since they're using affiliate links, I assume there would be no link juice to us (not to mention that most of them have zero views).
We are supposed to police our trademark, but we also have some leeway to choose our battles...
What do you think?
