USA Adds Some Amazon Websites to 'Notorious Markets' List

Today, the US Trade Regulatory Agency added several foreign Amazon websites to the list of well-known global markets for counterfeit and pirated products.

The United States Sales Representative office on Wednesday cited allegations of selling counterfeit products in Amazon stores in Canada, Germany, France, India and the United Kingdom.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier in December, citing individuals familiar with the matter, saying that the Trump administration plans to list Amazon's overseas sites in the global market known as counterfeit goods. The report said at the time that the Office of the United States Trade Representative would include this measure in the annual list of "notorious markets", that no decision had been taken yet and similar proposals were ignored in 2018.

Today, Wednesday, the US Trade Representative's office said, "It is looking for more information about e-commerce platforms, such as the notorious US market review."

Amazon did not comment on the decision, but said in a report to the Wall Street Journal: "counterfeit products" on its platform "completely prohibited" and invested a lot to protect customers from these factors. "Counterfeiting requires industry-level cooperation between retailers, brands, law enforcement and government, and we continue to interact with these stakeholders because we control bad behavior and place counterfeit products in stores. The number has dropped to zero."

Over the years, Taobao, the largest e-commerce platform in China owned and operated by Ali Baba Holding Group, has been added to the list of (Notorious Markets). In October last year, the American Clothing and Footwear Association asked the United States Trade Representative's office to list foreign domain names owned and operated by Amazon for the second time in a row.

"Although Amazon is the largest retailer in the world and an important trading partner for many of our member brands, it still poses challenges as a counterfeit," the American Clothing and Footwear Association said in a message to the US agent's office.

Amazon responded to the American Garment and Shoe Association by investing more than $ 400 million in people and employing more than 5,000 people in 2018 to help tackle fraud and counterfeiting in stores.
