Serving DMCA Counter-Notices When Amazon Sellers are Suspended for Copyright Claims
Jacques here, four… count them, one, two, three, four wins last week.
Today I’ll be talking to you about one of those wins where a client was suspended after receiving a copyright complaint and how he got that seller reinstated.
Number 1, you can always file a counter-notice when you receive a copyright complaint.
It’s all under a body of law called a Digital Millennium Copyright Act. By serving a counter-notice or having us, as your lawyer, serve a counter-notice, you’re telling whoever made that complaint that they can either put up or shut up, that they can either sue you or the complaint goes away. And more often than not, they’re not going to file that lawsuit.
Number 2, what Jacques found to be effective is putting in the plan of action a decision by the seller to stop selling that particular product.
Now, does that get the complaint off your account? I don’t think it does, but for Jacques and this particular seller, that resulted in what the seller needed, which is to get back to selling. That particular product was relatively meaningless to his account. So with Amazon, there’s almost always multiple ways to get the job done.
So copyright complaints, serving DMCA counter-notices, stopping the selling of the product, getting a retraction of the complaint. There’s a lot of different things that we do to help you get reinstated on Amazon.com. If you want to learn more, you can call, text, email me, or submit your case online.
