Fighting counterfeit: Amazon sites listed as ‘notorious markets’

The UK and four other Amazon country websites have been placed on a list of ‘Notorious Markets’ by the US Government in a crackdown on counterfeit products, reports the FT.

In a 49-page annual report into intellectual property violations, piracy and counterfeiting, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) named Amazon domains registered in the UK, Canada, France, Germany and India as markets it would be adding to the list of notorious markets that facilitate the sale of counterfeit products.

“In addition, as the scale and sophistication of the counterfeiters have continued to grow and evolve over the years, these right holders indicate that Amazon should commit the resources necessary to make their brand protection programs scalable, transparent, and most importantly, effective,” the report notes.

The US has been looking at ways to block counterfeit goods from entering the market for some time.
