Alibaba Intellectual Property Protection Platform Instructions

How Alibaba protects your intellectual property rights?
  • One Stop Complaint

    Alibaba Intellectual Property Protection Platform (IPP) covers the following Alibaba E-Commerce platforms: Taobao.com, Tmall.com, Tmall.hk, 1688.com, Aliexpress.com and Alibaba.com. If you encounter listings or behaviors which you believe infringing your IP rights (trademarks, copyright, patent, etc), we recommend you file complaints on the IPP platform.

  • Intellectual Property Disputes Resolution Mechanism

    Option 1: Alibaba Intellectual Property Protection Platform (IPP) is a web-based IP infringement claims processing system. Once your identity materials and intellectual property rights documents have been verified, you may submit takedown notices against suspected infringing product listings. Where takedown notices are established and processed, relevant product listings will be removed as per relevant system rules and policies. Sellers may file counter-notices, and the Platform may review the supporting documents and evidence submitted by both parties and determine whether or not to reinstate the product listings.

    Option 2: If you do not need the above convenient and fast IP dispute resolution mechanism offered by Alibaba but wish to seek further remedies from relevant judicial bodies or administration authorities after submitting takedown notices to solve your IP disputes, please submit takedown notices by email. Please submit your notices of infringement together with supporting prima facie evidence to the email box ipr@alibaba-inc.com. We will process your takedown request as per relevant legal procedure.
