Please advise me what to do. While contacting the manufacturer in China they did not tell me about property rights. I just sent my first delivery to amazon 150 pieces. Now I got an email from another seller saying
" I own all the trademark and Intellectual Property rights connected with the xxxxx. The name of my company is xxxxxx Ltd.
It has been brought to our attention that you are selling a pillow on amazon.co.uk
called the 'xxxxxx'
I am not sure if you are aware but the pillow you are selling is actually infringing our xxxxx patents.
The xxxxx is a patented protected pillow in the UK, the USA and China. The pillow has been granted a Chinese Design Patent no. 2436687 and also Pat. No. US D716,582 S. In addition, there are also numerous patents granted and pending worldwide, including the United States, the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain This means that the xxxxx, or any pillow that has similar features to the xxxxx, cannot legally be manufactured or sold without our permission. Since we have not given you permission you are infringing our patents and selling counterfeit pillows.
It is illegal to wilfully sell counterfeit products.
Now that you have been made aware that you are in clear infringement of the xxxxxx patents please remove the listing with immediate effect.
Please note, we also intend to make amazon aware of this patent infringement."
How do I deal with this situation? I at least need to sell these 150 pieces to recover my expenses.
thank you for advise.
