Baseless IP Complaint Case Study: Major NFL Franchise/Team

How we beat a major NFL team when it asserted baseless counterfeit complaints against an Amazon seller.

An NFL franchise was trying to enforce their distribution rights. They sold products directly to the individual that we represented. This individual had receipts and invoices purchased directly from the rights owner. Our client purchased these products properly and there was no limitation.

The NFL franchise was claiming there was limitation that they had posed later on other buyers, but not on ours. Clearly, they were just trying to enforce a distribution agreement that our client didn’t even sign and they filed a counterfeit complaint. As a team, we worked together and were able to show that the items were 100% genuine.

How we deal with intellectual property issues:

The first thing we do is give the rights owner an opportunity to retract. We start by contacting them and letting them know that the complaint has no merit. When a brand (large or small) asserts a false complaint, they are going to be liable for whatever damages the seller suffers.
