The United States Playing Card Company Claims Trademark Infringement and Counterfeiting, Case No. 22-cv-03211. Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd., has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the giant playing card producer and distributor The United States Playing Card Company (USPC). You may have been named in this suit if you are an e-commerce seller offering USPC products on Amazon, Walmart, Etsy, DHgate, Alibaba, Wish.com, and AliExpress. Accordingly, the USPC asserts that many sellers are deliberately offering trademark infringing or counterfeit products on the marketplace.

Basically, the USPC alleges that e-commerce stores have made a complex effort to actively dupe the public into purchasing imitations of their actual products. Altogether, the lawsuit aims to determine that sellers like you are strategically masking your identity in order to avoid getting caught selling counterfeit goods. Additionally, online marketplace stores are damaging the good name of one of the biggest names in playing cards, by supposedly committing trademark infringement and counterfeiting.
