Amazon has launched a pilot program to efficiently identify and resolve third-party patent infringement on the Amazon marketplace.  This program is voluntary and confidential, and it allows U.S. patent owners to obtain a fast evaluation of patent infringement claims relating to potentially infringing products listed by third-party sellers on Amazon.

This evaluation procedure is an interesting effort by Amazon to create a quick and efficient means by which patent owners can effectively remove infringing products from its marketplace, both clearing the exchange from infringing products as well as protecting Amazon from potential claims of indirect infringement via the exchange. 

However, the newly formed system is not free from confusion.  We are receiving an increasing number of questions regarding the process from our clients.  In this webinar, we will:

- Provide an overview of the evaluation procedure steps
- Detail the timeline set forth by Amazon
- Discuss considerations for patent owners and those pursuing possible infringements
- Address questions from the audience
