Utility patents are given for the invention of a new or improved process, and are both much harder to get than a typical patent and enforced with more strong. If you are an Amazon seller who has received a utility patent complaint, there are certain steps you should take to get your seller account reinstated.
The first thing you should do when you receive a complaint of this kind is to do a thorough investigation into the product you are selling to see if there is any truth to the claim that you are violating the patent. You should be able to analyze whether or not there is truly too much similarity between the process used in your product and that which is protected by the patent.
Next, you should reach out to the patent owner who has filed the complaint against you and attempt to prove that their claim is false and it would be appropriate to retract it. You should provide the owner with a legal opinion letter which documents that there is no violation of the patent occurring.
Last, you will email Amazons patent evaluation team and provide both the opinion letter and a patent analysis which proves the complaint was baseless. If you can prove to Amazon that your product is not similar enough to that which is protected to constitute a patent violation, you should have success in reinstating your Amazon seller account.
