Practice Overview: Private Label Product Launch Legal Review
Prevent IP Infringement by Researching Before You Launch
Get a comprehensive trademark and patent review prior to launching your private label product.
When you sell on Amazon, your product is entering the global economy. That’s why it is important to ensure that your private label products do not infringe on other’s intellectual property rights. By conducting a pre-production IP review, we can help you spot potential IP dangers with proposed private label products before you invest significant capital into your inventory and launch.
We will search existing patent databases in the United States to see if there are any existing patents covering your proposed private label product. We will advise you of any existing patents which could be deemed to be infringed by your proposed product, so that you can make an informed sourcing decision.
We can search for potentially problematic trademarks that could be infringed by your proposed brand, product name, or logo.
How do I protect against Infringement Claims?
One of the most effective ways to prevent an infringement claim is to hire an experienced patent attorney to perform a thorough patent and trademark search. By hiring an expert to perform a patent and trademark search, you not only have the piece of mind that your design/item does not infringe, but you can prevent costly infringement. Remember, if you import an infringing product, you can be subject to fines, impounding of items at the port of entry, and potentially litigation for patent or trademark infringement.
When You Want to Protect Your IP, You Need an Experienced Legal Team
If you are serious about protecting your business with intellectual property, you need licensed attorneys to represent you. Hiring an attorney allows you to sleep well knowing that your experienced patent attorney 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 patents: not only are they not qualified to help you, but in most states it is considered unlawful practice of law.
