Crayola Filing Lawsuit Against E-Commerce Sellers for Trademark Infringement and Counterfeiting
The law firm Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd. is back at it again: Case No. 22-cv-03902. Crayola has filed a suit against e-commerce sellers. The company claims these folks have formed an organized counterfeiting ring. To be clear, the global crayon and art supply giant is primarily aiming the lawsuit at Chinese-based sellers. In other words, those utilizing multiple platforms, such as Amazon, Walmart, Wish.com, eBay, DHgate, and Etsy all over the world.

Along these lines, Crayola further alleges that by defrauding the American marketplace, “significant health and safety risks” may occur. This is due to the fact that many of the company’s products are manufactured and advertised to children. In addition, e-commerce sellers are not subjected to enough scrutiny by the platforms themselves, so claims the suit. As a result, Crayola states they are incapable of determining each seller’s individual identity because they create too many online storefronts, as a way to develop a sort of smoke screen.
