Travis just came back from the JCON 2019 Ecommerce Summit in Brooklyn, NY.
He had the incredible privilege of listening to many informative speakers who were talking about the ecommerce industry. The summit is a great place to learn about IP issues, suspensions, private label brand protection, and arbitrations. The summit occurs every February.
Overall, this was a seminar for Amazon resellers. Travis tends to deal more with suspensions and defending intellectual property rights. My colleague, Rob Segall, handles arbitrations and does the opposite, he enforces intellectual property rights.
If you hire us to help with your Amazon appeals, you have a full team of college educated paralegals and U.S. lawyers reviewing everything.
Most of the conversation was about how to handle an Amazon suspension and what to do if it leads to an end road. Suspension is never the final option, arbitration is always an option. It is a great opportunity to take the decision out of Amazon’s hands.
According to Amazon’s lawyers, we represent 75% of all the sellers that take Amazon to arbitration. To get an order compelling Amazon to return your inventory or money, we negotiate reinstatements.
We taught sellers how to avoid suspensions, and how to get accounts / listings back if they get suspended. As sellers shift into private label brands, we explained how to protect and police those brands. If Amazon screws you over (which they do from time to time), we spoke about how to order Amazon for arbitration. Arbitration orders override seller support, seller performance, policy teams, Bezos, and legal. Amazon MUST comply with arbitration awards – that’s in your contract.
After speaking to the attendees of the event, we had the pleasure of meeting some of our previous clients. One in particular came over to tell us how much they appreciated all we did to help get their account reinstated.
We not only try to get accounts back, we also try to keep track of how many jobs we save across the country. On average, an Amazon account employs approximately 4 people, some more, some less. We save thousands of accounts per year, which is tens of thousands of jobs saved on a yearly basis.
