This is a two part question but before that I would like to thank you for the wealth of knowledge you have shared with everyone on the site. As a beginner trying to learn the ropes not I found that everyone who wants to “teach” you how to become an FBA always require $$$, a lot of clickbait.

  1. How do you find out if you are infringing on someones IP? While doing product research on Alibaba I’ve seen many items that look exactly the same. However, we don’t know if the AMZ competitor is using the same manufacturer. I know China doesn’t have infringement rules or very relaxed rules.
  2. Are professional services i.e lawyers, CPA, etc. part of your current FBA business? If so are there any plans on doing a post about them?

1). I use Google Patents database to check if a product has a patent when doing product research. When in doubt I check with a patent lawyer, but I have very limited experience with this.
2). I purposely stay away from any legal / tax advice because I am not a lawyer. I can give my general opinion about this kinda stuff, but I am not really in a position to write a post about it since I am no trained legal councillor.
