Amazon Brand Registry offers a robust defense against nefarious counterfeiters trying to sneak onto ecommerce sites illegally. Red Points explains why it’s a must-have!
Simply put, Amazon Brand Registry is a program for brands to tell Amazon more about their products and IP. This program helps both brands and Amazon protect against trademark abuses and generally supports the platform to learn more about the brands it is working with. Amazon hosts thousands of brands and hundreds of millions of products, so closer working relationships with brands will give Amazon the knowledge they need to help identify problems early on. This is just one of many initiatives launched by Amazon to address counterfeiters exploiting the site.
Amazon Brand Registry (ABR) is the best way to maintain control over your products and intellectual property (IP) on Amazon. For over 60,000 brand owners, it is an essential part of keeping their IP safe from the wrongdoers who have infiltrated Amazon.
