The response

Dear Roman,

Hello and thank you for contacting us!

We have forwarded your mail to the designated employee, who would
investigate and track this issue and keep you noticed on his decisions
on the issue right after he came back to Earth from the state of heavy
narcotic intoxication. However, we have no such employee, most likely
he would be using if he had to respond such mails daily.

As far as I can see the URL in question is a binary file which has no
tags, keywords or hidden text asssociated with it on our site.
Frankly, it cannot be read at all. I tried to open it and all I see is
a garbage (I would like to make a short excerpt from the file in
question, to prove my words):

I cannot see any mentions of yours (and any other trademark) in this.
May be, this hierogliph 籩 means "Kaspersky" in chinese? Or that - 践 ?
Could you provide us with some more details?

We would like to help you and put our best efforts to remove the
materials that infringing your trademark.

Thank you very much and feel free to contact us at any time!
