The litigation department of Rosenbaum Famularo, PC focuses on two areas:
Settling cases for ecommerce sellers who are sued for selling counterfeit products.
Representing sellers when they sue brands that made false counterfeit complaints against them.
When brands assert false counterfeit complaints against Amazon sellers, suspended sellers may be entitled to recover their damages against the brands that asserted the false counterfeit complaints.
AMAZON SELLERS FIGHTING BACK
Major brands continue to abuse Amazon’s intellectual property system. Brands’ counterfeit complaints against Amazon sellers are often baseless because Amazon sellers are selling genuine products. They are simply NOT selling counterfeit goods. Our experience dictates that brands assert false counterfeit complaints against Amazon sellers to impose higher prices on consumers.
False counterfeit complaints asserted against Amazon sellers often result in the suspension of the seller’s account or important Amazon listings, and the loss of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of dollars in sales. Amazon sellers have recourse under at least two legal claims.

Helping sellers/companies when federal courts freeze their inventory & money is withheld by Amazon.
The firm is accepting clients with frozen Amazon seller accounts to continue to reach resolutions and, when needed, fight the orders in court.
Many of the orders against Amazon sellers come from one courthouse:
The US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago, including orders issued in the following cases:
Volkswagon / Audi
Case # 18-cv-03229
Wham-O / Frisbee
Case # 18-cv-05878
Case # 18-cv-01173
Sellers are victimized by Amazon and the court system. Often, sellers have no notice of the lawsuit until after their inventory / money is withheld by Amazon.
– Travis Stockman, Esq., Managing Attorney of litigation department
It is awful… could you imagine your entire business, your inventory, and your cash being withheld based on one-sided accusations?

Threatening Rights Owners is a Dangerous Game
A lot of our clients end up dealing with rights owners on their own before they reach out to us.
They have some type of correspondence with the rights owner and it tends to get hostile a little too quickly. I say this knowing that a lot of my clients have gotten results from this in the past, but it also comes with a cost.
Big brands often obtain orders against Amazon sellers who never made any sales. Clearly, if you never made any sales at all, you never delivered counterfeit products despite what the brands claim in their lawsuits. Amazon sellers can obtain relief from temporary restraining orders if they have the right information.
