Houston we have a problem:
My Amazon Associate account was closed because of one-boxing.
They claimed that reproducing the logo locally was a violation of their trademark.
I went to the page to find what was wrong and it looks like it was a simple link someone had posted that had been one-boxed … it had uploaded the logos onto the forum presumably?
I haven’t yet responded but that’s pretty unfortunate:

Your original Associates ID is no longer active. If you have links on your website that include that ID, you’ll want to update them to use your new Associates ID.
We hope to see you again soon.

Has anyone else had this experience?
Looks like to achieve compliance I will have to remove all one-boxes from the site? Or is there an easier solution?
I found the blacklist setting I will still need to go through all old posts or rebake?
