On the eve of Valentine's Day, some sellers broke the news that a group of Amazon sellers' Listing was removed from the shelves, mainly because the link was maliciously tampered with and complained, and their techniques were not fresh, but many sellers suffered losses. When the seller was angry, he tried to find a trace of the crime, and finally dug out the spoof behind him. It is understood that the incident may affect many European station sellers and are looking for a solution.
In fact, since the beginning of the year, the operating environment of Amazon sellers has been impacted. The exchange rate has decreased and the freight has been raised. Some sellers spit out the overall cost in January, and there was a situation of increasing production and income, and the profit margin declined. How to avoid being attacked to the greatest extent is also a compulsory course by Amazon sellers.
"OIMG" is registered as a trademark
The senior seller Wu Ye broke the news, and some sellers had a malicious competition for infringement complaints by Amazon, and the impact caused this time. A European station seller's forty links were maliciously tampered with OIMG. Four Links in France were complained to counterfeit products, and the sellers of malicious complaints did not stop. Some sellers do dozens of links, some of them are hundreds of links, and Wuye's shops also have a link to hit the gun. A large number of sellers, Listing, were removed from the shelves!
It is understood that this time it was a seller's malicious attack tampering with a large number of Listing and then complaining. The type of complaint was the abuse of trademarks and fake products without testing. The trademark of the complaint was "OIMG". Some sellers even said they had been complained several times.
Some sellers dug the spoofs behind their backs and found that the creator of the incident came from a company in Quanzhou, Fujian. Sellers who are maliciously complained can only appeal as much as possible to ask Amazon platform to help resume sales. Another seller said that his company was complained recently because of OIMG's trademark, but inquiring about the relevant listing, there was no word at all. As soon as he was preparing to appeal, Amazon automatically revoked.
The last time it was "Chenxiaohua", this time it was "OIMG". Many sellers speculated that what was the purpose of doing such a bad thing? Is it just jealous of other sellers sold? Or like the previous "chenxiaohua" incident, service providers do the trademark "business"?
It is understood that in the previous "Chenxiaohua" incident, a large number of sellers were also maliciously complained to trademarks and found that they were sentenced to infringement because the word "cloship", but there was no word in the Listing and trademarks of the complaints. The seller received 18 voting letters one after another.
Some victims chose to contact the complaint as soon as possible, hoping to solve the problem, but found that the other party's mailbox was set up. Other sellers who tried to contact each other also said that the mail showed that the delivery failed, and even the shop where the complaint was not found in the market.
Some sellers found a complaint notice that the infringed trademark "Cloship" found that the trademark Cloship was registered and released in November 2021. The owner is called "Chenxiaohua". Trademark "business" service provider.
It is worth noting that some sellers revealed that the company involved this time not only registered OIMG trademarks in the European Union, but even registered trademarks with the same name in the United States. Be vigilant.
The "gray" technique is endless
In the cross -border e -commerce industry, as the platform competition is becoming more intense, sellers show their magical powers and increase sales volume through various methods. The infringement is the red line that Amazon cannot touch, but many people still come up with various malicious complaint routines. So far, various "gray" operations have emerged endlessly. According to Hugo cross -border understanding, the main two are the following:
The first is to use the independent station malicious complaint Listing. As one of the popular ways of spoofing in the past two years, a large number of Amazon sellers have suffered innocent! The commonly used routine is to copy the seller's Listing, put it on the self -built station or the official website, and then use this to complain about copyright infringement. It is understood that some sellers specifically built the station with Shopify, and then collected the Amazon link to the competitors on the shelves, and then went to Amazon to complain.
Some sellers were even threatened, and the words "contact the withdrawal X -hour will continue to make a complaint" and other words, and actively contact the other party, while the other party said that the withdrawal of the lawsuit can but need to give money. However, from the feedback from many Amazon sellers, after the problem, the appeal or failure has been in the case. Once the appeal fails, it can only swallow it by the stomach.
There are also sellers who summarize experience. At this time, only the seller provides the time of the seller's product on the shelf time and the independent station time comparison chart of the complaint product product. It is preserved in advance to prove the copyright ownership information. In addition, it can appeal to the Amazon platform to provide a trademark certificate, procurement contract, purchase of VAT invoices, and real shots of UPC products, which can generally pass.
The second type is to initiate malicious complaints or trademarks with similar patents. This kind of routine is that malicious complaints use similar but have many different appearance patent complaints to infringement, and repeated complaints. Once the product on the seller does not have a patent, it can only go to the complaint process. If the appeal is improper, It is likely to be required to provide a letter of authorization and fall into the dead cycle of repeated appeals. It is best to apply for a patent in time, always hold a heart to prevent people, and conduct regular infringement risk warnings.
The routine of trademark ransom is generally the case: the seller pretends to be the brand owner, reporting to Amazon's products of other sellers, causing infringement and false infringement reports. Malicious removal trademarks are generally to extort money, and the price is not low. If you do n’t give money, you will continue to “pressure” with various spoofers, such as tampering with listing picture information, add other trademarks in Listing and title.
The above is a summary of the industry sellers. It is recommended that the seller register for their trademarks. There are disputes where there are benefits. It is difficult to terminate the spoof incident. In order to minimize the risk ability, the loss can be minimized. After all, once the complaint infringement is established, it is lightly removed by Listing, inventory backlog, and the account funds are frozen and the sales permissions are removed. They may also face huge compensation.
