Chinese Translation: Saper Law Defends Online Retailers Sued for Trademark Infringement

This is the Chinese translation of our article about Saper Law defending online retailers who have been sued for trademark infringement: 赛博律师事务所代理中国在线零售商,积极应对商标侵权诉讼   大品牌继续起诉在线零售商商标侵权   您在亚马逊或Ebay上销售产品吗? 您是否使用PayPal处理付款?您确定您销售的产品不涉及对其他品牌的商标或者版权的侵权吗?   在您开始在这些网站上销售产品之前,提前知晓可能对您所销售的产品提起知识产权诉讼的潜在风险非常重要。   一些背景信息:   为了停止销售假冒或侵权产品,很多高端品牌正在聘请律师,特别是伊利诺伊州北部地区的律师,来提起商标侵权诉讼以阻止假冒或侵权产品的销售。这些诉讼的提起主要依据美国商标法,也称为“兰哈姆法案”。   什么是商标侵权?   根据美国商标法,商标侵权是指在商品和/或服务上或与商品和/或服务相关的商标或服务商标被未经授权使用,这种商标或服务商标可能会导致消费者关于商品和/或服务来源的混淆,欺骗或错误。也就是说,如果您使用其他公司的品牌销售您公司的产品,并且以让消费者认为您是该品牌的拥有者的方式,那么您就侵犯了该合法品牌的商标权。   对于商标侵权的惩罚是什么?   如果商标所有者能够证明侵权,可能的赔偿可以包括以下内容:   1.法院指令(禁令):法院命令被告停止使用被诉商标并关闭被告的Paypal,Ebay,亚马逊,阿里巴巴等商家账户。(如果法院授予原告临时限制令,或初步禁令或永久禁令,则通常会发生这种情况)。 要求销毁或没收侵权产品或货物的指令(禁令),   金钱损害赔偿(包括被告的利润,原告所遭受的任何损害赔偿以及诉讼费用),   1.被告支付原告律师费的命令。   诉讼如何提起?   通常情况下,当一些奢侈品公司发现中国商人以不合理的低价在线销售奢侈品牌商品,并怀疑其为假冒伪劣产品时,这些奢侈品公司会对这些产品进行调查,搜集证据并购买在线销售的侵权产品。   然后,这些奢侈品公司会提起诉讼,并且附上调查员的调查结果。   […]
