Who Is Infringing on Whose Rights in Amazon Takedowns? - EcommerceBytes

Summary

Dear Ina,

I do not understand why a manufacturer can have a right to get a listing de-listed of a legally owned - USED - item that I personally legally purchased for "trademark infringement."

Dear Ina,

I do not understand why a manufacturer can have a right to get a listing de-listed of a legally owned - USED - item that I personally legally purchased for "trademark infringement."

The premise behind this crazy rule means that once you buy something you can no longer list it for sale after you upgrade, replace or not longer need it?! This is personal property previously purchased from a manufacturer's OWN seller originally!

OF COUSE the description of the item will include the brand name, as that is what it is! By not allowing the resale, on a prominent resellers platform, is akin to rendering the property useless and may be construed as the ILLEGAL TAKING OF PROPERTY.

Someone in our legal community, or Congress, really should step in and address this issue as it is becoming more prevalent. I know that Amazon can make its own policies, and that there are other platforms and means to resell it, however, as this company grows in size and dominance it approaches that of a Monopoly status.

I have tried to contact Amazon but there is no voice as their bot simply refers me to the policy and ignores the issue allowing the manufacturer to continue infringe upon the rights of property owners.

Just wondering what others think about this issue and if anyone is aware of any current or pending legal challenges to this issue.

T.
