    Hello, this is not about Ebay, but about Amazon, but my story can relate to Ebay, I'll post here.

    Recently I've been able to locate a whole seller from China who sells cables.
    I got a bunch, started selling on Amazon.ca.

    Another seller sent me a message saying that he "owns" the EAN (bard-code) that I am infringing IPR (intellectual property rights? really?)

    I read the message couple of times and it is really a garbage. Therefore I want to report this seller and the message to Amazon.ca for false threatening.

    1. This seller is threatening me and the information provided is false. Products are not branded under the name provided.

    2. This seller altered the original picture and placed his logo with his own trademark symbol. This link shows the original packaging. (http://www.amazon.com/ADVANCED-CONNECTOR-certified-upgrades-devices/dp/B002BUAS04)

    3. Intellectual property rights on a physical product? really?


    Anybody has any insight on how to go about doing this?
    Any input will be appreciated.

    I am say he is bullshiting you big time, I have sold books in Amazon and I didn't get letters from companies that sell etc, though I sold them personnally. I am sure you have done nothing wrong. Though I have to admin I am not 100 percent sure, but I think I am right, more input guys :D

    I think this is a great response indeed, you have a link to his old listing with out logo which makes him look bad, including the fact that his company if it is real lol does not solely own the product you are selling. I am also highly doubtful that he has a company, it is easy to make one up as I have a account in Alibaba which say I have a company.
    In my opinion this guy has no defense at all. and is just likely trying to be the sole seller of the product. Are there other sellers that sell the same stuff? you can point to them as doing the same thing etc. but again this is my opinion, I do hope more blackhatters weigh in their opinions :) damn I wish I stuck to my legal classes instead of government in university :D
