    • Alibaba Enforcement Steps AliProtect | legal.alibaba.com 1. Register for a free account with AliProtect and submit your infringement claim 2. Once Alibaba receives and evaluates the complaint/notice they will expeditiously take down the listing referred to in your claim 3. They will then notify the seller in writing of the removal of the claimed infringing product listing and provide them with your contact information so that they may contact you directly with an opportunity to respond 4. If the seller objects to the removal of the alleged infringing product listing, the seller may submit a counter-notice to dispute the claim. Upon receipt of such counter-notice, Alibaba may resume the seller’s listing unless they receive notice from you that an action has been filed against the seller in a court of competent jurisdiction for infringement of your intellectual property rights 11
