Tools You Have As An Amazon Seller To Get Your Business Back After Receiving Complaints on Amazon
Copyright complaint, counter-notice. Copyright complaint, counter-notice. What in the world am I talking about?
If you’re an Amazon seller and you received a copyright complaint, you have every right to employ the tools under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and file what’s called a counter-notice.
It is a legal document. We do these documents every single week. What you’re basically saying to that copyright complainant is put up or shut up.
“I didn’t violate your rights, and if you think I did, take me to court and prove it.”
So, why would you ever dare anybody to take you to court? Well, once you file a counter-notice, if that brand, that company, that seller doesn’t file a lawsuit, the copyright complaint comes off your account and you get your business back.
When should you do this?
One, when you’re not violating anybody’s copyright or interest.
Two, you’re confident they’re actually never going to sue you.
In those scenarios, counter-notices are a great tool at every third-party seller’s disposal if you receive a copyright complaint.
