Frequently Asked Questions
What types of intellectual property do you enforce?
If counterfeiters have infringed on your trademarks, copyrights, or patents*, we can help. IP not registered yet? Don’t worry, we can help with that too.
*We can enforce design patents, and to a more limited extent, utility patents.
Are you a law firm?
Edison is not a law firm but we partner with some of the top IP law firms around the world to help our clients file lawsuits and enforce their IP.
Aren't lawsuits expensive?
With Edison’s Lawsuit Solution, you’ll pay nothing up front. Edison will front all legal expenses, our partner attorneys work on contingency, and we only make money when you do. Because of this, we only take on cases we know we can win. Contact us to learn if our legal strategy might be a good fit for your brand.
My infringers are based in China. How can you collect money from them?
We sue counterfeiters in US Federal court and freeze the money in their e-commerce accounts (Amazon, Walmart, PayPal, etc.). With this as leverage, the infringers will typically settle or abandon the money in their accounts.
Does your Takedowns solution use software and/or AI?
Yes, but unlike our competitors, we don’t rely solely on software to identify infringement. One of our experienced legal analysts will get to know the ins and outs of your intellectual property and stay one step ahead of the counterfeiters as they monitor the e-commerce landscape on a weekly or daily basis. Software is no longer enough. Counterfeiters have outsmarted the automated solutions already by editing copyrighted photographs to evade AI detection, or modifying trademark usage (N1ke vs. Nike) to evade scraping software. With people + software, you get the best of both worlds. And with Edison, a personal response is only an email away.
What marketplaces do you cover?
We cover all the major e-commerce marketplaces (Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Shopify, Alibaba, Aliexpress, DHGate, Temu, Wish, etc.) and are constantly adding new marketplaces to our list. Contact us for an up to date list of covered marketplaces.
What's the time commitment for a lawsuit?
We pride ourselves on being a turn-key service, handling most of the interfacing with the law firm on your behalf. A typical client spends only a handful of ours in total on case-related tasks (filling out survey-type questions, signing legal documents) and we handle the rest!
If we take down infringing listings, can we still include them in a lawsuit?
Yes. With our full-service option, we can take down listings right away using our takedowns service to minimize lost sales, and then sue the infringers later to recover lost profits. Just because a listing gets taken down doesn’t mean you can’t file a lawsuit against the infringer for the damage done to your brand. In fact, we specialize in doing both at once, for the best of both worlds.
How much money could I make from working with Edison?
If your brand is a good fit for our lawsuit service, you could collect money from your counterfeiters and recoup lost profits. While it is impossible to predict how much we’ll collect, the average Edison case settlement is hundreds of thousands of dollars.
How does Edison make money?
In addition to the paid takedowns services we offer for a monthly subscription rate, in our lawsuits, Edison collects a percentage of the case’s settlements. The law firm works on contingency, and then Edison and the client split the remaining proceeds after expenses are deducted.
What risks are there to filing a lawsuit against my infringers?
Edison and its partner law firms vet each potential client’s case and only take on cases we can win. In over 5 years of filing anti-counterfeiting lawsuits, Edison’s clients have never lost a case, nor have they ever had infringers retaliate. We’re so confident in our strategy, if we don’t win your case and make you money, Edison pays all legal fees and you owe nothing.
Does your strategy work with what my lawyers are already doing to protect my IP?
Yes. Typically, in-house counsel are not well-versed in this niche legal strategy known as Schedule A anti-counterfeiting lawsuits. That’s where we come in. Our expert IP lawyers will work in parallel with your in-house counsel to ensure that you’re maximizing your options to fight counterfeiters on all fronts. Our lawsuits complement other strategies you may already be utilizing such as ITC actions, Amazon’s APEX program, and DMCA takedowns.
How are you different from other takedowns services?
Edison’s Takedowns service is different in 3 main ways: 1) Humans + AI. Unlike our competitors, we don’t rely solely on software to identify infringement. One of our experienced legal analysts will get to know the ins and outs of your intellectual property and stay one step ahead of the counterfeiters as they monitor the e-commerce landscape on a weekly or daily basis. Software is no longer enough. Counterfeiters have outsmarted the automated solutions already by editing copyrighted photographs to evade AI detection, or modifying trademark usage (N1ke vs. Nike) to evade scraping software. With people + software, you get the best of both worlds. 2) Personalized customer service. Unlike our competitors, you get more than just a flashy dashboard. You’ll have a point person assigned to your brand to ensure custom requests and questions are accommodated in a timely manner. 3) Built-in lawsuits. With Edison’s years of expertise in anti-counterfeiting lawsuits, our Takedowns service is built with lawsuits in mind. We gather courtroom-ready evidence in parallel to issuing takedowns so that when we reach a critical mass of infringers, initiating a lawsuit is seamless. We even purchase one item from each infringer and ship it to our warehouses where we inspect and catalog it for use as evidence. None of our competitors offer this sample purchasing service, which is a crucial step in ensuring your lawsuit is as strong as possible.
It seems too good to be true. What am I missing?
We get this a lot (just read our Google reviews!) but Edison’s solutions are not a scam. With our Takedowns and Lawsuit services, your brand will be protected from counterfeiters. We can’t stop them completely, but we can help make counterfeiting your brand less desirable.
