US NATIONAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS COORDINATION CENTER AND AMAZON ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF A JOINT OPERATION TO PREVENT COUNTERFEIT GOODS FROM ENTERING THE US

On 24 November, a news release from US Immigration & Customs Enforcement advised that the US Government’s National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (aka the IPR Center) and Amazon have announced the launch of a joint operation to prevent counterfeit goods from entering the US. In an effort to protect consumers, this joint operation will analyse data and conduct targeted inspections aimed at preventing counterfeit products from entering the supply chain. The IPR Center and Amazon will leverage evidence obtained during the operation to expand ongoing investigations, with the goal of holding bad actors accountable to the fullest extent of the law. This operation will be led by Amazon’s Counterfeit Crimes Unit, which was created earlier this year to support law enforcement investigations and to initiate civil litigation against counterfeiters.

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
