What is the Amazon Brand Registry

The Amazon Brand Registry is a program offered by Amazon that allows businesses and brand owners to register their trademarks with the online retailer. The program offers several benefits to registered brands, including enhanced brand protection, improved searchability, and expanded marketing opportunities.

One of the main benefits of the Amazon Brand Registry is enhanced brand protection. This is especially important for businesses and brand owners, as counterfeit products have become a major problem for e-commerce sites like Amazon. By registering with the Amazon Brand Registry, businesses can better protect their brands from counterfeiters, as Amazon will actively monitor its website for potential infringement. Additionally, registered brands have access to more tools and resources to report and remove infringing products from the site.

Another benefit of the Amazon Brand Registry is improved searchability. When a brand is registered with the program, Amazon will give priority to the brand's products in search results, which can help increase visibility and sales for the brand. Additionally, registered brands can create and manage their own brand pages, which can be used to showcase their products and provide customers with more information about the brand.

The Amazon Brand Registry also expands marketing opportunities for registered brands. For example, registered brands can create sponsored product campaigns, which allow them to advertise their products on Amazon. Additionally, registered brands can participate in the Amazon Vine program, which allows them to provide product samples to reviewers in exchange for honest reviews.

To be eligible for the Amazon Brand Registry, a business or brand owner must meet certain criteria. The applicant must have a registered trademark for their brand and must provide Amazon with the registration number and any other required documentation. Additionally, the applicant must be the owner of the brand or have the authority to register the brand on Amazon.

One important thing to note is that while the Amazon Brand Registry offers many benefits, it is not a substitute for registering your trademark with the government. Registering with the Amazon Brand Registry does not provide any legal rights or protections that are not already provided by the government registration. However, it can enhance the legal rights and protections in the Amazon platform.

In conclusion, the Amazon Brand Registry is an excellent tool for businesses and brand owners who want to increase visibility, sales, and protection for their brands on Amazon. By registering with the program, businesses can better protect their brands from counterfeiters, increase visibility and sales, and expand marketing opportunities on the platform. However, it is important to remember that the Amazon Brand Registry is not a substitute for registering a trademark with the government.

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game With the recent announcement that EA will be venturing back into the world of college sports for one of their upcoming games. It is essential to look at the reasons for its (over a decade-long) hiatus from making college sports games. Several high-profile cases took down a very profitable area of sports gaming almost ten years ago, over a simple but crucial element to the games, the players.  Privacy and personality laws in the United States is an emerging area of law founded on the basis that is based in tort law. It deals with the ideas that a person has rights: 1. To be left alone; 2. To not have public disclosure of private facts; 3. To not be depicted in a false light; and 4. To not have your name and likeness misappropriated.  On these critical tenets, personality laws have become increasingly more prevalent as, due to advances in technologies, it is becoming easier for one's likeness to be copied and distributed.  Th

The Federal Court this week delivered their judgement on  Australian Competition and Consumer Commission v Service Seeking Pty Ltd  [2020] FCA 1040 going all out by handing out whopping fines, legal costs orders and ordering Service Seeking Pty Ltd to establish a, undoubtedly expensive, compliance system to be monitored by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).  What did they do that was so bad?  According to the Federal Court of Australia, they created a system in which businesses could write their own customer reviews.  With a rating system less defined than what constitutes a 5-star rating in an Uber trip, businesses could write a review, assign a star rating and send it off to their customer for approval. If the customer didn’t respond or even open the email containing the review, then the review was automatically published online after a set period. By estimates of the Court, approximately 80% of the reviews published on the website for the period that this sch

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company.

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company. What do you do when your favourite company that makes your favourite type of bread makes it bread outside of your favourite state? You take them to court, or at least that is what one man has done.  A man in New York has filed a class action against bread maker, King's Hawaiian over the sweet rolls alleging that the company misled him into believing that the rolls are actually made in Hawaii. Robert Galinsky is pursuing a class-action lawsuit against the company claiming unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud. King's Hawaiian packaging Galinsky claims that Hawaiian Rolls by itself "does not denote a roll made in Hawaii any more than a 'Moon Pie' can claim to have been baked on the moon." But the company using the original location of its factory, 'Hilo, Hawaii' in its packaging is misleading to customers.  If Galinsky can convince th
