The Challenge: Counterfeit Products on Popular Online Marketplace

ElectroTech, a pseudonym for our client, is a well-known manufacturer of high-quality consumer electronics. They were alarmed to discover that a seller on a popular online marketplace was offering counterfeit versions of their products, potentially damaging their brand reputation and causing financial losses. These counterfeit products not only deceived consumers but also posed potential safety risks due to their inferior quality.

Our Strategy: Collaborating with the Marketplace and Payment Processors

ElectroTech sought our firm’s help in addressing this IP infringement issue. Our team quickly got to work, collaborating with the online marketplace and payment processors to gather evidence and build a strong case against the counterfeit seller. We leveraged our expertise in platform enforcement to navigate the complex policies and procedures of the online marketplace.

Through meticulous documentation and persistent communication with the marketplace, we successfully demonstrated the seller’s infringing activities and the harm caused to ElectroTech’s brand. Our efforts led to the swift shutdown of the seller’s account, preventing them from further distributing counterfeit ElectroTech products.

The Outcome: Shutting Down the Seller and Recovering Damages

By collaborating with the online marketplace and payment processors, we successfully shut down the counterfeit seller’s account, effectively stopping the sale of fake ElectroTech products. This decisive action protected ElectroTech’s brand reputation and prevented further financial losses.

In addition to shutting down the seller, we were able to recover damages on behalf of our client. These damages helped to mitigate the financial impact of the infringement and compensated ElectroTech for the harm caused by the counterfeit sales.
