Amazon Sets Up China Counterfeiting Enforcement

Posted In: Retail Articles

By

Amazon announced that it has identified and disrupted three counterfeiting operations in China thanks to local Public Security Bureaus and intel provided by the company’s Counterfeit Crimes Unit.

Law enforcement seized more than 240,000 counterfeit items in the Guangdong and Jiangxi provinces, Amazon noted. Intelligence from Amazon led to the seizures following similar actions by law enforcement in the United States and the United Kingdom. The main suspects in the China action were detained by local PSBs for further investigation. Amazon has eliminated any infringing listings connected to the counterfeit cases involved, the company indicated.

“Our efforts to identify and dismantle counterfeit organizations are working,” said Kebharu Smith, associate general counsel and director of the Amazon Counterfeit Crimes Unit, in announcing the actions. “We appreciate law enforcement acting on our referrals and thoroughly pursuing these cases. These outcomes protect Amazon customers, disrupt the counterfeit supply chain, and halt their illicit proceeds.”
