US AAFA names retail giant in notorious markets submission
The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) included certain Amazon marketplaces in its submission to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) identifying foreign markets that facilitate the sale of counterfeits. AAFA identified amazon.co.uk (United Kingdom), amazon.ca (Canada) and amazon.de (Germany) in its submission.

The submission was part of USTR’s 2018 Special 301 out-of-cycle review of notorious markets, which identifies foreign physical and online marketplaces that reportedly engage in and facilitate substantial copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting, according to an AAFA press release.

“Identifying the sale of counterfeit products is crucial to our ongoing efforts to defend American intellectual property, American jobs, and American consumers. The annual review of Notorious Markets by the Office of the United States Trade Representative is essential in this process,” said AAFA president and chief executive officer Rick Helfenbein. (DS)
