Amazon Copyright and Trademark Infringement

If you believe that Amazon is listing a design of yours without your permission, please read the following to find out what steps you need to take to get the infringing product taken down.

Amazon Listings Guide

 

  • If an Amazon listing has Zazzle listed as the store name, but has a different seller listed in the “sold and ship by” section, submit an infringement report and include the Zazzle trademark information (see below) in your report. You can state that the ASIN/seller is infringing on the Zazzle trademark as the product is not authentic.

 

  • If an Amazon listing has a stolen design (neither the store name nor “sold and ship by” are Zazzle), email Amazon according to the instructions below or submit an infringement report here: https://www.amazon.com/report/infringement

 

  •  If an infringement report gets rejected, send your report and the rejection notification to Zazzle and we will forward this information to Amazon so they can better advise us (Zazzle and you) on how to submit infringement reports so they can be approved.

 

Amazon Counter Notices

 

If you send a copyright or trademark infringement report to Amazon, and the reported seller then sends an appeal to Amazon, you may receive what is known as a Counter Notice.

 

  • If you receive an Amazon Counter Notice regarding copyright, no action is required on your behalf unless you would like to take legal action against the seller.

 

  • If you receive an Amazon Counter Notice for a claim that includes the Zazzle trademark, email Zazzle at amazon.fraudlistings@zazzle.com and we will work with Amazon to get the infringing product taken down.
