Procedure in case of an ASIN blocking or the suspension of a product on Amazon:
First of all, in cases of a product blocking on Amazon (AMZ suspension), it is recommended to analyze and examine the alleged infringement (examination of possible violations of industrial property rights, such as patents, designs, trademarks and copyrights or infringements of competition law / advertising law).
If the alleged violation turns out to be unfounded, for example the following options are available:
- Contact the sender of the product suspension (ASIN suspension) on Amazon.de or his IP Lawyer or Patent Attorney
- Contact with Amazon to activate the offer, reactivate an ASIN or recreate a product listing
- Attack on (invalid) intellectual property rights (e.g. application for design cancellation at the GPTO / DPMA or at the EUIPO as design cancellation application against EU design / community design)
- Assertion of counterclaims (e.g. claim for damages in case of unauthorized blocking)
