Major League Baseball used to send out agreements like that to people they had shut down on eBay.
 
They shut me down and I sued them.  They backed down.  
 
Which handbag company, some are tougher than others.
 
I know one company that claimed they had a copyright but when pressured for the number they could never come up with it.  And this was a major name corporation.
 
Email me directly if you like, and check out my website for battles I've been in and won on my own:

The first company that came after me almost bankrupted me, I fought back and won but it took almost a year and it's been tough to recover from.

At first I gathered that you didn't know the difference between a copyright and a trademark, but I read your link and see that you obviously do.
 
As for the idiotic DMCA, here is a site you might enjoy browsing:

Enjoy browsing, shot, I'm posted on there for the first VeRO member that came after me.
 
Wanted a list of everything I owned with their clients copyright on it so they could arrange for it's seizure and disposal.
 
Ignoring the advice from Mr. Auslander to give up because we didn't have a case, we fought back and won.

The lawyer says he represents Louis Vuitton and Fendi although he is not a company lawyer. Thats why I feel he is in it for the easy money.
 
Our bags do not have lables and the patterns are different. Louis Vuitton is famous for the "LV", some of our bags have an "L" and most have a "J". On top of that Louis Vuitton bags sell for $500 to $800, ours sell for $25 to $30.
 
The bags we sell are actually not even the desired type. People look for the bags with the lables and logos which sell for $100 or so. We lose a lot of customers because of this but we always stayed with what we had because it's legal.
