WILMINGTON, N.C., SEPTEMBER 14, 2020 – Marpac, LLC, which sells its full line of sleep products under the Yogasleep® brand took aggressive legal action to defend against unauthorized reselling of its branded products on the Amazon marketplace. On August 11th, 2020 the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts issued a judgement that the roque reseller “1st Avenue Superstore” was to cease all marketing and sales activities using any of Yogasleep brand products or trademarks.

 “Like most consumer product brands, online marketplaces are a critical channel for selling our products where consumers increasingly purchase goods,” said Daryl Millar, Chief Growth Officer for Marpac, LLC. “Whenever rogue sellers attempt to take advantage of the trust place in our products, by misrepresenting themselves online,  we will always take aggressive action to defend our consumers.”

 Marpac, LLC hired the law firm K&L Gates to litigate the successful action.

Case name:               “Marpac, LLC v. 1st Avenue Superstore”

Case Number:          1:20-cv-11091
