Amazon Sellers' Guide to Copyright Law

By CJ Rosenbaum, Anthony Famularo, Levi Stewart & RJ Cherpak

Book: Amazon Sellers Guide - Copyright Law

This book focuses on teaching Amazon sellers about United States copyright law.

It is important for sellers to know how to properly file a copyright and to understand under what conditions a copyright protects.

Avoid problems before they arise by protecting your brand from the start.

We’ve successfully reinstated thousands of accounts, obtained retractions of the vast majority of intellectual property complaints asserted against our clients, and resolved many issues with Amazon’s lawyers and staff in the US, India, Ireland, Costa Rica, and the United Kingdom.

We apologize that the minimal donation is now $2.97 for bookkeeping purposes.

It’s a great cause, the book is awesome, the charity is awesome, so please donate at least $2.97, but feel free to donate more.

Amazon has a program called AmazonSmile. You sign on through AmazonSmile then it allows you to pick a charity. Once you pick a charity, it doesn’t cost you, the buyer, anything. It doesn’t cost the seller anything. Amazon then kicks back a small portion of the sale to the charity you pick.

Our charity is the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation. It was founded by a close friend of mine named Lou Campbell and his incredible wife, Cindy. When they lost their son Ty, they turned tragedy into triumph and their pain into productivity as they created this foundation. If you’re shopping on Amazon, use AmazonSmile and I would ask you to pick the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation.

Ty Louis Campbell Foundation

All donations go to the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation

Amazon will donate money to the foundation to help find better treatments and, God willing, a cure to pediatric cancer. By doing this, I’m helping to raise money, you’re helping to raise money, and together we are helping to make this world a better place.

The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation is a nonprofit organization that funds innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the most aggressive childhood cancers with a strong focus on brain tumors.

Their mission is to help fund the intelligence and technology that will improve long-term survival rates and minimize side-effects for children diagnosed with the deadliest cancers, while helping to care for families when their child is in treatment by providing financial assistance and uplifting experiences. (EIN: 45-1858390)

We wrote the books on doing business on Amazon and maintain the #1 site for Amazon sellers.

Our firm can assist you in discovering the issues within your Amazon account that caused a suspension. We’ll provide a detailed analysis of your account, identify the underlying issues, and figure out how to address each of them before we complete your Plan of Action and get your account reinstated.

If you've been suspended on Amazon, contact us about your case:

We contacted Rosenbaum Famularo & Segall to help us on an IP matter on Amazon. David and Yasmine immediately understood our issue and helped us negotiate a successful settlement agreement, secure a retraction from the opposing party and finally get our listing reactivated, all under a very tight deadline. They were with us throughout the process, promptly and expertly responding to all our questions and inquiries. Can’t recommend the firm highly enough for matters concerning Amazon. You’re in excellent hands with Rosenbaum Famularo & Segall! Follow up seven months later: we reached out to CJ again for a modification of our agreement. CJ and Leslie worked with us step by step and were able to successfully negotiate one on our behalf. We'll be working with this team for any Amazon legal matters in the future.

Top notch law firm for Amazon 3rd party sellers. We had a stressful situation with a copyright complaint and hired this firm to help. Nicole made the onboarding easy enough. Declan who was assigned to the case was responsive and guided me through this situation to the satisfactory and successful result.

They took care of my IP issue pretty quick. The firm seems to have a lot of experience dealing with these IP issues and know just how to navigate through them. At least that was my take on them. I wouldn't chance going anywhere else if the need for assistance such as this was needed.
