    Hi guys,

    I bought some product from China, which ended up being a brand name ( even though the chinese seller said he own the brand name, haha )

    I got a letter of c&d from a lawyer asking me to stop selling it, which I did.

    Did anyone of you guys get any of these letter ? should I just ingore their emails after I stopped selling the products ? you think they will proceed into a lawsuit ?

    any good advice will be appreciated.

    Any a small tip to you guys, if you do OEM or private labeling, be extremely careful...

    I have gotten no less than 8 of them over the years.

    Typically if you just stop the activity you are fine.

    Yup that's what I did, I'll see if they send anything else and contact an attorney and sue them for harassment, loss of sleep and sexual desires, or something like that.

    The world became so messed up with all those patents and copy rights laws...

    A C&D is a legal way to ask you to stop, so if you stop you are complying with their request and this should be the end of the story.

    Yeah its just that in that letter it said something about "paying their client for the lawyers fees " ... thats not gonna happen, im sick of stupid lawyers and companies who think they own the world, so if they will demand a payment i'll sue them for harassment as I said...

    Thanks for the answers folks, and again beware of Chinese manufacturers, I even did a research before I bought and the product wan't trade marked or was associated with any LLC that I could find... and still got a c&d, haha

    Got something similar a few times... just stop doing what you are doing and you will be fine probably.
