Seller Distribution Without Permission - Google Shopping

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

An unauthorised distributor is stocking my clients products then using Google Shopping to sell them. The majority of the time undercutting my client. The brand is trademarked but as I understand trademarked terms are not handled in the same way as text ads. Can anyone advise on the process I would take to cease them advertising a product they do not have legal distribution rights for? If there is one at all. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help Smiley Happy

I don't think you as an individual are able to do anything about this, the manufacturer might be able to with legal action by court order. I recommend you suggest them to talk to a lawyer about the procedures.

 

You can also contact Google Adwords for advice, however I don't think they will be able to provide you with advice on this matter.

 

Hope it helps.
