AMZ Sellers Abusing Copyright Law – Reporting a Baseless Infringement Claim Against Competition
Hi, Amazon sellers. Today, I want to talk to you about copyright law.
Copyright does not always have to be registered.
In fact, it can be hard to register. That is why a lot of copyrights are not registered.
You can receive plenty of baseless complaints of copyright from other Amazon sellers and even those who do not own the brand. Amazon sellers will usually report infringement when you take their images, copy and paste them to create a listing on Amazon. If you copy and paste someone else’s verbiage, you will also be in violation of the copyright law.
Typically, Amazon addresses three types of copyright infringement: direct, contributory, and vicarious.
Direct infringement must show that the defendant personally violated the rights listed in the Copyright Act.
Contributory infringement is when you knowingly contributed to the infringing conduct of another.
Lastly, vicarious infringement occurs when you directly benefit financially from another’s infringing activity and you have the right to stop it, yet choose not.
Our team is great with dealing with any type of baseless infringement claim on Amazon.com.
