Success against the Trademark Troll Toogoo/Sodial. After writing, faxing, email, contacting exec support, doing test buys Amazon finally agreed that IP claim sent from a gmail account was bogus. Given the the appeal was granted at 12:24 am after sending it at 11 pm, it clear that Amazon US is no longer in the loop about IPV claims.
This was not a high priority for me after the 1st month, so I just appealed it when the mood struck me.
Amazon is still ignoring that Toogoo/Sodial is operating at least 3 seller accounts and has created 140,000 bogus listings.
Now I have to deal with Uxcell and Overseasmall. I will drink from the skulls of my enemies.
Here is the letter I have been sending over and over and over and over to Amazon - feel free to use it…
