Intellectual Property Infringement Litigation
Protect Valuable Intellectual Property
If someone is infringing on your copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secret, or patent, you need our help
Intellectual Property rights owners are increasingly facing the “wild west” of Amazon and eCommerce, where established notions of intellectual rights are being abused and misused by novice sellers. Unfortunately, the rise of unscrupulous suppliers who claim that your patented or trademarked design is not protected have resulted in threats to your IP. If you are facing infringement of your valuable intellectual property, our unique mix of marketplace enforcement processes and legal tactics can help you regain control of your IP.
Many sellers do not realize that their actions on Amazon, eBay, and other marketplaces can have real-world effects. This means that many sellers mistakenly believe that “Amazon is the judge and jury”, and that Amazon’s decision on whether to allow or take down content is the final word. Fortunately, this is not the case and we can help.
If your IP is being infringed on Amazon’s platform, we can utilize the Amazon IP infringement process to take down offending sellers and conduct. By utilizing the Amazon IP notice framework, we can help you regain control of your brand’s presence on Amazon. In the event that offending content is not removed, our team has the legal knowledge to bring legal claims either concurrently or sequentially to the Amazon infringement takedown process.
Legal Processes for Infringement
Unfortunately, many sellers do not realize that their actions on Amazon, eBay, and other marketplaces can have real-world effects. This means that many sellers mistakenly believe that “Amazon is the judge and jury”, and that Amazon’s decision on whether to allow or take down content is the final word. Our legal team has been on both sides of the brand enforcement table, and can help utilize appropriate legal channels when Amazon resolution methods are not sufficient. Additionally, our attorneys can obtain binding legal orders to serve upon Amazon to take down offending content, obtain offending seller information via subpoena, and obtain and perfect judgements against infringing sellers.
When You Face Infringement, You Need an Experienced Legal Team
When you face infringement on Amazon or another ecommerce platform, you need licensed attorneys to represent you. Hiring an attorney can help you deescalate the situation or bring appropriate litigation against the offender, and gives you the security of knowing that an attorney who deals with these issues frequently is using their experience and knowledge to help further your business goals. Nobody without a law license in good standing should give you advice about how to handle an infringement claim: not only are they not qualified to help you, but in most states it is considered unlawful practice of law.
