Amazon Intellectual Property Rights Infringement Appeal
Amazon intellectual property infringement appeals range from Amazon copyright infringement complaints over copyrighted images or text, to Amazon trademark infringement or counterfeit complaints to patent infringement claims, any of which can result in listing removals and suspended Amazon seller accounts. Copyright, patent and trademark violations are serious and can not only result in losing your Amazon selling privileges, but also have federal law implications that can cause you to suffer loss of your product inventory and damages. Let's find out what we can do together to protect you from this.
Trademark and Brand Registry
If you get a notice of intellectual property rights infringement from Amazon, it is something you must take seriously. In the case of these complaints, your Amazon seller account could be suspended without being given an opportunity to defend yourself.
Many brands are now suing Amazon sellers in federal court for these offenses, and freezing their sales proceeds with a temporary restraining order (TRO). In these cases, Amazon will not release your funds until the case is settled or decided, which means you need an Amazon lawyer on your side.
“We strongly encourage you to hire a U.S.-licensed attorney who specializes in trademark law to guide you through the registration process” – USPTO
After such a quote from the official page of the “United States Patent and Trademark office”, we have no other choice but to give you a clear guidance on the process of your trademark registration.
What is a trademark?
A trademark contains you brand name, slogans and logos, which allow to identify a specific product or group of products, OR services. A registered trademark is an asset of your business. With its help, you can not only clear the market of counterfeits or prohibit the import of counterfeit goods, but also use it as a springboard for the development and expansion of your business by transferring rights through franchises and licenses.
Visually, it looks like a text or graphic object applied to products, packaging, or used for advertising purposes. However, just the fact of placing a beautiful and memorable sign is not enough to protect it from illegal use by competitors. To do this, you need to issue a certificate for the trademark in the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark office).
