Chinese E-Commerce Sellers Sued by Crayola: Why Is This Happening to Me?! 

Along these lines, Crayola further alleges that by defrauding the American marketplace, “significant health and safety risks” may occur.

In addition, e-commerce sellers are not subjected to enough scrutiny by the platforms themselves, so claims the suit.

Telfar Suing Amazon Sellers

Telfar Suing Amazon Sellers

Telfar is Suing E-Commerce Sellers Due to Trademark Infringement 

Telfar is one of the hottest, most affordable designer bags companies on the market today. Accordingly, Telfar bags sell out immediately after their release. And major public figures and celebrities often wear them, like Oprah, Beyoncé Knowles, Dua Lipa, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As a result, Telfar Clemens and their collections have garnered praise from The New York Times, Vogue, New York Magazine, HYPEBEAST, and The Wall Street Journal

Consequently, many counterfeit Telfar bags and products exist. Worse, some resellers may not realize the bags they are sourcing could potentially be counterfeit putting them at risk for involvement with this lawsuit. Therefore, you may ask, “How does one tell a real Telfar product from a fake one?” 

Our Next topic: Case No. 22-cv-03635 Filed by Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd. Telfar Suing Amazon Sellers

You MUST RESPOND in order to have the Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) lifted if you are one of the defendants in the lawsuit filed by Telfar. Right now, the TRO prevents you from operating your e-commerce accounts. It also stops you from accessing the money your business has earned via the sale of Telfar goods and all other branded products.  

Is this fair? Probably not! However, you must provide an Answer to the court. As detailed in the Summons and Complaint tied to the TRO, if you fail to respond, the next thing that could happen is a Default Judgment – oh no! – wherein liability is assumed, and the court will automatically rule in favor of Telfar. Which would be even more unfair! Avoid this potential outcome by simply giving an Answer.

THE NOTICE YOU RECEIVED IS ABSOLUTELY NOT SPAM!

Amazon Suing Sellers and Facebook Admins Over Review Manipulation Accusations

Amazon Suing Sellers and Facebook Admins Over Review Manipulation Accusations

Just last week, multiple major media outlets reported on a huge lawsuit filed by Amazon, which is suing upwards of 10,000 Facebook group administrators for writing and/or facilitating fake reviews for e-commerce products. Amazon labels this tactic as “Review Manipulation.”  

If you are one of the Amazon sellers named in the lawsuit, then you may be the victim of an unfair accusation. The complaint filed in King County Superior Court, Seattle, alleges that groups like “Amazon Product Review” and “Amazon Varified Buyer & Seller” offered payment and/or refunds to buyers in exchange for writing bogus reviews, or directly sold fake reviews, on Facebook. 

This latest tactic by Amazon is negatively impacting thousands of online businesses just like yours. 

Reportedly, the most difficult aspect of Amazon’s crusade is that the identity of the Facebook group admins is apparently unknown, which explains why the complaint does not actually name them, it simply refers to the defendants as, “Jane Does d/b/a [doing business as] Facebook groups creators, admins, and moderators.” And yet another roadblock is that many of the FB groups are private and they only admit those who can prove they are an Amazon seller or reviewer. 

As a defendant in the case, you, the seller, have had your account suspended for review manipulation. Next, if not already, you will be asked by Amazon for a Plan of Action.

WE ARE HERE TO DEFEND YOU! Our firm has the deep, intricate knowledge and experiential wherewithal to assist in drafting this Plan of Action, and by doing so, we will provide you with the tools to get reinstated as a seller. Stockman & Poropat, PLLC can offer you the services you require to get rid of this ugly, annoying, confusing mess!

Our firm has successfully handled a myriad of cases just like this, so we can say the following with the utmost confidence: Transparency is the key to reinstatement. Our communication strategy with Amazon will be two-pronged in its overall approach: isolate select reviews for removal and demonstrate a full understanding of review policies so as to convince Amazon that such a violation of terms will never happen again.

You deserve a second chance. We will not only help restore your account, but we will help educate you on how to operate your business to prevent this kind of disruption moving forward. In the unfortunate event you are actually sued, our firm can explore your needs to defend the litigation and establish innocence. Feel free to email us or call (718)-657-7400 for more information on this lawsuit.

Peanuts Files Lawsuit Against Online Sellers

Have you recently received a notice of a lawsuit filed by Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd. on behalf of Peanuts Worldwide, LLC (Case No. 22-cv-00502)? And have you been named as one of the Defendants in the case? 

If the answer is yes, then we are very pleased you found our page! It would be our great pleasure to offer a little context on just what this lawsuit means for you as a hardworking and honest e-commerce seller. 

Typically speaking, online sellers like you become aware of the lawsuit they were named in as a result of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), which is to say, after you found out all of the money in your e-commerce accounts has been frozen or withheld because of the suit. 

(Arghhh!!! How frustrating!!! Believe us, we know! Even Charlie Brown would sympathize!) 

The TRO is accompanied by a Summons and Complaint as well, which sets for the plaintiff’s claims and indicates that you, the Defendant, acknowledge the receipt of the notice, and that you must respond to the court in a timely manner. In order to properly respond to a Federal lawsuit, you are required to file what is known as an Answer. Simple enough! And this Answer is where you may present, in written form, whatever response is necessary to the Plaintiff (Peanuts), including a counter or cross claim and/or any defense. 

If you do not respond, a default judgment may be entered against you. Which is where we come in! Call us to avoid a default judgment! The notice is NOT spam! 

Based on the notice, Peanuts alleges that sellers based in China and around the world are taking advantage of various trademark leniencies in order to knowingly purvey counterfeit or copyright infringing products on DHgate, Wish.com, Alibaba, eBay, and Amazon (Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd. Case No. 22-cv-00502). Unfortunately, your earnings will continue to remain withheld and inaccessible until you resolve the matter.
