Im not sure as they have given me a vague response
Sorry a late 'Thank You'!
The rights owner? I believe in UK, but not sure
They are working on behalf of Proctor & Gamble, owners of Oral B
No, its just the email which I pasted into the question I provided
eBay advised me to contact the rights owner by email at the given email address, to which they responded -
Your eBay listings have been removed as the products you have advertised infringe one or more patent and/or design belonging to our client, the Procter & Gamble Company, Ohio, USA, or one of its affiliates. The specific IP right identified in our original message is granted/registered in the UK, where your products are being offered for sale. Infringement of this right is independent of whether or not the products you are selling are branded. Should you require further information on this, we advise you to seek advice from a patent attorney.
Exactly but -
The specific IP right identified in our original message is granted/registered in the UK, where your products are being offered for sale.
Other sellers are selling the exact same brushes here in the UK and from abroad
Ok, so first I need to find out how I have infringed, the exact details
if other sellers are selling the exact same items, am i correct in assuming this is not a design right violation?
but rather a listing policy violation - as mentioned in the eBay violation alert
Yeah, there must be some listing violation in teh first place otherwise eBay would not be removing it
Yes, I kinda figured that out
but thank you for your response
To an extent yes
