Jack Links, manufacturer of beef jerky, is opening a federal lawsuit to identify people who sold counterfeit coupons for its products. Free-product coupons for Jack Links have been available online via Ebay sellers and other coupon resale sites for several years, but Jack Links has stated that they are counterfeits. From the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal:
The Minong, Wis.-based snack maker says it's losing customer trust and thousands of dollars to fake coupons for free jerky, despite warning retailers, consumers, and auction website eBay about the counterfeits.
Jack Link's lawsuit accuses dozens of eBay users of selling counterfeit Jack Link's coupons. It asks Minnesota's U.S. District Court to force eBay to share identifying information associated with the accounts. The sellers go by names such as 2extreme2pay, capone3306, couponsaves2013, and texasjimbob — and some list Minnesota as their location.
The fake coupons use the Jack Link's trademark, which allows the company to file the suit under federal trademark law. The fakes lack color, expiration dates or the holographic security strip featured on authentic coupons.
Jack Link's has battled the counterfeiters since at least 2011. The company told retailers to reject the fakes, used its Facebook page to warn customers, and had eBay take down some counterfeit listings. But the coupons are still showing up. When retailers accept them, Jack Link's gets the bill. When retailers reject them, Jack Link's gets the blame.
... Jack Link's said it could seek up to $2 million per counterfeit logo, plus damages, lost profits and legal fees. The company is represented by Minneapolis law firm Merchant & Gould.
Jack Links has posted warnings about free-product counterfeits on its Facebook page. And, you may remember that last year on TLC's Extreme Couponing All-Stars finale, shoppers Chris Duff and Joni Meyer-Crothers used free-product Jack Links coupons in large quantities on the show which are also believed to have been counterfeit, as the kinds of coupons they used are identified both on Jack Links' Facebook and on the CIC's fraud alert list as counterfeit.
4:30pm Update: Yahoo reports Ron Johnson is OUT as CEO!
Here's an update in the JC Penney / Martha Stewart / Macy's lawsuit. As we've discussed before in the blog forus here, Macy's and JC Penney are entangled in a lawsuit over the right to sell Martha Stewart-branded items.
Martha is already under contract by Macy's. Macy's has the exclusive right to sell Martha Stewart-branded home products. Meanwhile, JC Penney made a deal with Martha to sell Martha Stewart products at JC Penney too, in apparent violation of her existing agreement with Macy's -- entering into a $38.5 million deal with Martha without clearing up whether or not they could actually legally sell her stuff.
JC Penney has argued that carrying Martha Stewart's products is essential to their company turnaround plan. Hearings resume today, and the New York Post has an update:
As its courtroom tussle over Martha Stewart resumes today, JCPenney is bracing for the worst. Accused by Macy’s of cutting an improper licensing deal with the domestic diva, CEO Ron Johnson’s company has begun scrambling this month to concoct a contingency plan should he lose the case, sources told The Post.
The worry: that Penney will be barred by a New York judge from selling an entire line of home goods designed by Stewart’s company, forcing Penney to eat massive losses on tons of inventory it has already produced.
“All of the stuff is already manufactured — it’s either on the water or in the warehouses,” according to a source close to Penney. “They’re feeling like there’s a substantial risk that they’re going to lose this and won’t be able to sell any of the merchandise.”
To avoid the danger of empty shelves, insiders said the retailer during the past two weeks has ramped up talks with Asian suppliers to arrange for emergency production of non-Stewart-designed bath products, bed linens and kitchenware. The emergency goods, which would take 75 to 90 days to manufacture and deliver, would likely be made under old Penney private labels, which include JCP Home for bedding and Cook’s for kitchenware, sources said.
Looking to sidestep the allegation that the Stewart-designed line violates Stewart’s home-goods licensing deal with Macy’s, Penney has kept Stewart’s name off most of the goods.
Apart from a handful of categories where Macy’s doesn’t have a license, such as window treatments, the merchandise slated to hit stores next month will bear the generic tag “JCP Everyday.”
Macy’s, however, has contended that its five-year-old agreement with Stewart bars her from designing any home goods for competitors, no matter what label is on them.
In reading this, I found it interesting that now JC Penney wants to keep the Martha Stewart brand name off her JC Penney line. If Martha's name recognition is so essential to their turnaround plans, selling them under the JC Penney brand seems to defeat the purpose of bringing her in at all.
