I simply buy these plastic bags in bulk, and break them down and repackage them in a brand that i created but have not yet copyrighted.
Yes, we are a limited company. The company name is ND Online Retail Ltd, and the brand we have been using is called Octopus Crafts.
No, to both.
The scenario is that I am looking to protect a product i am selling on Amazon, so to stop another seller saying they are selling the same item, I want to brand the item with my own designed 'Octopus Crafts' logo. I want to do this from, say, Monday onwards. At the same time i will apply for trademark but this will take 4-6 months to register.
So, to summise...From Monday i will rebrand my productFrom Monday i will update the product image to show my branded productFrom Monday, no trademark will be in place, but it will have been applied forFrom Monday, my competitor will still sell what he calls the same product from the same Amazon listing, but...he will not have my branded product, so it will be materially different
That is correct.In Amazon, only 1 listing should exist for each different product, but within that listing various sellers can sell that product - but only if its the same product.My issue is that if I brand the product, then i am hopeing nobody else can claim to sell the same product, even if they are supplied by the same manufacturer.
Can I claim to have sole rights to my branded product, even though the underlying product (plastic bags) are manufactured by someone else and available to everyone else. And, can i make this claim even if my trademark has not yet been fully registered.
