Brand Protection Services for Amazon Sellers
As a professional law firm, we tend to defend Amazon sellers against baseless internet protocol lawsuits and ask for withdrawals.
We take Amazon to arbitration once it refuses to reinstate accounts or unleash cash to sellers.
We assist sellers in filing trademarks and defensive their names from counterfeiters as they move to develop their labels.

Monitoring Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (ASINs)
Listing hijacking is a problem that any seller, whether big or small, should be aware of and actively attempting to avoid.
Hijackers are sellers not allowed to sell a brand’s product but show up on those listings and try to sell it anyway.
Monitoring ASINs regularly will allow sellers to respond to hijackers more quickly and effectively.
Hijackers may be selling counterfeit, infringing, or forged products.
From a seller’s perspective, each category is similarly critical to avoid, but Amazon treats them differently.
Amazon does not have a strict definition of counterfeit products, but one thing is sure: these items are not inherently counterfeit. In general, Amazon refers to goods that they suspect are from the gray market as “inauthentic.” Those are goods that may have been obtained through unauthorized channels of trade. Inauthentic goods, as defined by Amazon, are determined by the seller’s place of purchase. That’s to say, the purchaser flags items purchased outside of the legitimate stream of commerce.
Our brand protection services wouldn’t be complete without a test buy.
What makes this step so important? Without the test buy, neither our sellers nor staff can accurately assess whether the product in question is counterfeit, infringing, or inauthentic.
Test buys should be made before contacting us to save time.
As a result, the time it takes for sellers to reclaim ownership of their listings gets shorter.
If a seller is accused of infringing or selling counterfeit goods, it is a serious matter.
If the argument turns out to be unfounded, the seller could lose several days of sales or even lose their ability to sell. We are concerned about the implications of these claims. As a result, we strongly advocate for every seller to verify the product they claim is infringing with a test buy. Please send it to our office after you’ve completed a test purchase to conduct our evaluation. If our investigation finds that the commodity is infringing, inauthentic, or counterfeit, we recommend sending a cease and desist letter to the infringing seller.
Before filing a lawsuit, we contact the Amazon hijackers and allow them to settle the matter amicably. We reach out to Amazon & offer them an opportunity to resolve things before filing a lawsuit amicably.
After our whole protection unit sends a cease & refrain letter to an infringing marketer, lots of times, we will get a response, and most likely, they will take away the listing on their own. However, if they don’t answer or take away the listing, we tend to take it to Amazon & file a report of infringement.
When a client calls us about brand protection, we first ask about any intellectual property rights they may have, such as a registered trademark, patent, or copyright.
A seller doesn’t need to be registered for a trademark/copyright. However, in terms of implementing on e-commerce platforms, it’s helpful to own registered rights.
When it relates to Amazon vendors, we have a lot of experience with copyright owner complaints and intellectual property law.
