This Schedule 1 is applicable to all Complainants.
Notification of an Alleged Infringement
Those wishing to notify Lengchat of an Alleged Infringement shall complete the IP Complaint Notice in the form as attached in Schedule 2 and send it (together with the Relevant Information) to Lengchat' designated representative, whose details are as follows:
Complainants should particularise the Alleged Infringement in as much detail as possible in order to help Lengchat to evaluate the IP Complaint Notice as effectively as possible.
The following are examples of how to present the Alleged Infringement to Lengchat:
If the Complainant is an agent or a parent, subsidiary, related corporation or affiliate of the owner of the IPR with which the Alleged Infringement is concerned, such Complainant must provide a certified copy of a power of attorney executed by the said owner of the IPR (or such other evidence of the Complainant's authority as may be deemed satisfactory by Lengchat), in addition to the Relevant Information.
Investigations in respect of the Alleged Infringement
If the Complainant refuses or fails to satisfactorily complete and sign the IP Complaint Notice, or if, in Global Source's sole and absolute opinion, any of the Relevant Information provided to Lengchat is or appears to be incorrect, incomplete, invalid, inapplicable, unsatisfactory or insufficient, Lengchat reserves the right to refuse to handle the Alleged Infringement unless and until the IP Complaint Notice has been satisfactorily completed and signed and all further clarification, details, information or documents requested by Lengchat are provided to Lengchat by the Complainant.
Lengchat shall conduct investigations in relation to the Alleged Infringement to ascertain the merits of the IP Complaint Notice based upon the Relevant Information provided by the Complainant.
Upon receipt of the IP Complaint Notice, Lengchat will evaluate the IP Complaint Notice.
Upon the provision of the IP Complaint Notice, the Relevant Information, and all other information and documents which Lengchat may require for the evaluation of the Alleged Infringement to Lengchat, Lengchat shall serve the IP Complaint Notice to the Alleged Infringer.
The Alleged Infringer will be given three full working days to rebut the claims of the Alleged Infringement in writing to Lengchat's designated representative (whose details are set out in Section 1 of this Schedule 1 above).
If, in Lengchat' sole and absolute opinion, the basis, grounds, or merits of the IP Complaint Notice have not been satisfactorily established, and/or the Alleged Infringer's rebuttal of the claims of the Alleged Infringement do not appear to be unfounded or groundless, then Lengchat reserves the right not to take any further action in respect of the complaint.

Where a Complainant would like to persist in asserting the Complainant's claims based upon the IP Complaint Notice, Lengchat requests that the Complainant show Lengchat a relevant final court or arbitration judgment, order, decision or award in the Relevant Jurisdiction, before taking any further action.
