Amazon’s New Terms of Service for Sellers: Paragraph 7: Warranty of Non-Infringement
As a seller, you need to be aware that Amazon came out with a new Participation Agreement. They made a lot of changes. If you have a good grasp of what the new Terms of Service entails, then it is least likely that you will be in violation of its provision.
The seventh paragraph of the new Terms of Service highlights your responsibility as an Amazon seller to ensure that your products are not infringing upon any intellectual property rights of another person.
WE AND OUR AFFILIATES DISCLAIM: (i) ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT
By signing the agreement, you guarantee that your products are free from any patent, trademark or copyright violation. Basically, a warranty of non-infringement requires a seller to defend the buyer against any rightful claims of infringement that might be brought against them.
In many ways, your responsibility as a seller does not stop once your product has been delivered to the buyer. Hence, you must take extra caution in choosing what you source and sell on your Amazon seller account. To avoid account suspensions, you have to make a plan to ensure that your products are not in violation of the Amazon Terms of Service (TOS).
