Amazon has recently launched the Intellectual Property Accelerator, which is a new program designed to help small and medium businesses more easily and efficiently obtain intellectual property rights and brand protection in Amazon’s online stores.
Essentially, the IP Accelerator seeks to connect businesses with a trusted network of IP law firms that can help them more quickly secure a trademark. Additionally, if your business uses the Amazon Intellectual Property Accelerator, its brand is granted accelerated access to brand protection in Amazon’s online stores.
The network of IP law firms, carefully selected by Amazon, are all in compliance with Amazon’s predetermined rates for standard trademark registration services.
Many small business owners would far rather avoid the hassle associated with trying to establish a trademark registration, which is why these firms are here to make the filing process easier. These IP firms will research brands to ensure nobody else has ever used the same brand. Additionally, they can help you obtain copyright registrations, design patents, and more.
If your brand goes through one of Amazon’s recommended IP firms, it can be protected years before the trademark registration officially issues. Additionally, your brand will also reap the benefits of automated brand protection, which can block bad listings from Amazon’s stores and allow you to use the Report a Violation tool, which can help you find and report bad listings manually.
If you are a small or medium-sized business, perhaps you should try the new Intellectual Property Accelerator. It may help you develop and expand your business in ways you never thought possible.
