Copyright Infringement on Amazon.com website
Today’s digital medium has given the scope to the people for marketing the products over which they hold Intellectual property rights. There are many e-commerce portals which helps in marketing those products in the digital medium. Some were in the habit of taking advantage over these process of selling. One of the largest market in the digital medium is Amazon. Amazon has its retailer website at different countries like Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom.
At every amazon retailer website, there are various storefronts i.e. sellers, who are engaged in selling their own products at the website. We had our client who was engaged into the selling of his own branded perfumes at Amazon.com as well as on his own website. As those products were highly in demand, taking advantage of this, those storefronts used to sell the products without any consent. These infringers used to copy the exact product images as well as the description in order to double-deal the customers.
One of the United States website has its storefront at Amazon.com and the other infringing storefronts on Amazon.com had copied the same products of our client and posted on their product listing which would be a clear case of Copyright infringement. This infringement make huge loss to the client in their business.
