Auction websites are no longer the flea markets of the Internet. Increasingly, businesses are turning to auction websites and on-line marketplaces as a means to reach consumers directly, either to supplement or replace brick and mortar stores. But are the goods sold at your site genuine? Are they legally imported into the United States? And if they are not, how does this affect your business?
At Jacobs & Burleigh, we can assist you in assessing the risks you may face in operating your auction site and on-line marketplace. We can audit your website to determine your risk, provide user agreements to help limit potential liabilities, and formulate policies for responding to complaints regarding allegedly counterfeit goods, in order to protect your interests. Contact us online or call 212-207-8787 to schedule your initial consultation.
