Amazon Marketplace and Online Intellectual Property Disputes

Navigating Online Intellectual Property Disputes

Our Amazon Marketplace and Online Intellectual Property Disputes practice assists clients facing a wide range of intellectual property issues relating to e-commerce. In particular, our team has significant experience helping clients navigate online intellectual property issues, including those arising on Amazon Marketplace and other large e-commerce platforms.

The group comprises seasoned intellectual property lawyers who are well-versed in IP litigation and dispute resolution. We represent intellectual property owners whose patents, trademarks, and copyrights are infringed online, as well as e-marketers who sell goods and services through their own websites and third-party platforms, such as Amazon Marketplace. Our clients also include affiliate networks and affiliate marketers.

We regularly devise strategies to ensure that online retailers remove infringing products from their platforms and reinstate products wrongly accused of infringement. We have also successfully represented IP owners and Amazon Marketplace sellers in Amazon’s Utility Patent Neutral Evaluation program. Many of our intellectual property attorneys who work on matters involving this process have technical degrees and patent prosecution experience, uniquely positioning them to craft winning arguments that enable our clients to prevail.

Our extensive knowledge of intellectual property disputes arising online, especially through Amazon Marketplace and affiliate marketing, has been featured in ForbesBloomberg LawIntellectual Property MagazineLaw360, and JD Supra.

Our Work

Our team of highly experienced intellectual property lawyers regularly represents IP owners, e-marketers, affiliate networks, and affiliate marketers in the following types of matters:

Copyright disputes. We represent copyright owners whose designs, photographs, and product descriptions have been infringed online. We help these owners register their copyrights and strategize to have infringing products, product descriptions and photographs removed from the internet.

Trademark disputes. Our team represents trademark owners whose rights have been infringed online. We also assist online sellers, affiliate marketers, networks and advertisers whose products, product descriptions and advertising are accused of infringing another’s trademark.

Amazon Marketplace design patent disputes. Our work on Amazon Marketplace sellers’ behalf has led to the reinstatement of many listings previously removed due to wrongful allegations of design patent infringement.

Amazon’s Utility Patent Neutral Evaluation program. We represent clients involved in Amazon’s Utility Patent Neutral Evaluation process, an invite-only program in which a third-party evaluator resolves disputes between utility patent owners and Amazon Marketplace sellers accused of infringement.

Mergers and Acquisitions. Drawing upon the expertise of our Corporate and Securities group we represent clients seeking to buy and sell online businesses and assist clients in preparing to place their businesses on the market and obtain a high valuation.
