Did you receive an intellectual property complaint? If a rights owner accused you of selling counterfeit goods or infringing on their trademark, copyright, or patent, you should seek counsel immediately. Often, Amazon accounts are suspended due to accusations of infringement, so it is of utmost importance to resolve such claims as soon as possible.
To remove intellectual property complaints on Amazon, we contact the rights owner of the intellectual property at issue and request retractions. Additionally, we prepare intellectual property infringement appeals to submit to Amazon to reinstate the listings.
We find that many intellectual property claims filed on Amazon and other ecommerce platforms are without merit. Common reasons provided by complainants include:
- Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) violations
- exclusive distribution agreements
- sellers claiming to “own” a listing
