Companies sue Amazon for selling fake products
A lawsuit was recently filed against electronic commerce firm Amazon.com, Inc. by three companies over suspicions that fake versions of their products were sold on the plaintiff’s site, a December 6 article of Reuters reported.
According to reports, Allstar Marketing Group, Ontel Products, and Ideavillage Products filed a trademark infringement claim against Amazon on December 5. The three companies are known for selling “As Seen on TV” products, such as Snuggie blankets, Magic Tracks racetrack toys, and Copper Fit compression sleeves. Their lawsuit was filed weeks after Amazon filed lawsuits against companies using their platform to sell fake products. Several accusations, including copyright infringement violations, were filed against Amazon. A spokesperson for Amazon did not issue a comment about the ongoing litigation.
