Alastin Skincare accuses Skincare Solutions Store of reselling Alastin products without authorization through its own website and through its “Advanced Skincare LLC” Amazon store and “loveyourskin-us” eBay store. Alastin sells products through a network of authorized physicians and skin care professionals, which it says is necessary to ensure the purchases are specifically tailored to the consumer’s individual needs and to ensure the consumer’s health and safety. Alastin’s agreements with its resellers prohibits the sale of its products to anyone other than consumers, and prohibits them from advertising its products on third-party Internet marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. Alastin says these sales and advertising activities infringe its “Alastin Skincare” common law and federally-registered trademarks and its copyrighted product images. Alastin asserts counts of false designation of origin and false association, tortious interference with contractual relations, and violation of c. 93A. The case is before Judge Sorokin.
