When I first started selling on eBay I did not knowing that these were pirated sets. I didnt know till I had become a beachbody member. I am a team beachbody coach and I started buying the product from them afterwards as well as other sellers on eBay that there product matched what beachbody llc sells.
I contacted beachbody LLC when I first started buying the sets. I asked them why the dvd's didnt play right. I was told since I didnt purchase them from there site they were not covered under warranty. I was never told at that time they were copies. I even asked if they manufactured two different sets for sale and I was told yes. I described the sets I seen on ebay and there customer service told me there sets were as such so I didnt think anything of it. Plus coming from china I thought it was just a wholesaler.
I received a letter from a attorney for selling beachbody products on eBay. TThe letter claims counterfeit. The attorney wants me to provide him with all my sales and buyers infor so as he states (please provide me with the following information and documentation in order to work towards an amicable resolution to this matter, absent litigation:
I feel if I provide him with this information. Beachbodys attorney will use my sales as a means to run up the damage claim. They only purchased one dvd from me and are basing all claims on this one dvd.
I purchased open sets and well as sealed sets on ebay from many sellers. Do I have to provide this attorney with this data, and if I do can they use it to sue me for more damages.
What if I do not provide this attorney with what they are requesting?
