Amazon met with ACG members today for a roundtable discussion about their most recent features and new initiatives helping our members protect their intellectual property (IP). A fantastic turn out of more than 60 delegates joined in on the discussion and got to meet the team of experts and what goes on behind the scenes of the e-commerce selling site.
Excited by what Amazon where able to bring to the discussion, they started the session by going into detail about their Counterfeit Crimes Unit and its activities on offline investigations. This roundtable gave members the opportunity to raise questions or challenges through ACG, who then shared them with the Amazon team ahead of the roundtable. All the brands’ queries were provided with a comprehensive and thorough response. The engagement from members was extremely encouraging that it has been agreed that more roundtables like this with Amazon are to become more regular for ACG members.
This event is the second in a series of Protecting Brands Online Roundtables offered free of charge to our members. The next one will be held with Pinduoduo on 18 February and eBay will follow later in the month.
