Administration Solicits Comments for Notorious Markets


The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) is requesting assistance from the public in identifying Internet-based and physical counterfeit markets located outside the United States that should be included in the 2016 Notorious Markets List. This list, which the U.S. government has published since February 2011, identifies “select online and physical marketplaces that reportedly engage in or facilitate substantial copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting.” FASA/Gemini companies who are combatting counterfeits in online or physical markets around the world should contact FASA/Gemini if they would like to report these problems to the USTR.  Deadline for submission of comments is October 7.
