Shopping Actions doesn’t allow the promotion or sale of counterfeit goods. Counterfeit goods contain a trademark or logo that is identical to or substantially indistinguishable from the trademark of another and mimic the brand features of the product in an attempt to pass themselves off as a genuine product of the brand owner.

Examples of prohibited content include replica, imitation, knock-off or other non-genuine product copying brand features in an attempt to pass itself off as a genuine product. To submit a counterfeit complaint, use this form.


Shopping Actions doesn’t restrict use of trademarks by merchants in the title or description of the listing when it’s for a trademarked product or a product compatible with the trademarked product. Merchants need to reference trademarks to be able communicate to users what they're offering, and users need that information as it's relevant to their searches.

We’ll review claims by trademark owners that use of their trademark is likely to cause consumer confusion about the origin of a product. To submit a trademark-related complaint if you’re an owner of the trademark, use this form.
