Trump administration advancing personal vendetta against us: Amazon

Washington, April 30 (TIWN) Jeff Bezoz-run Amazon was left in shock when the Donald Trump administration put five of its foreign websites – India, Canada, the UK, Germany, France – on the "Notorious Markets" annual report for being havens for counterfeit products.

Not just Amazon, Snapdeal and four other Indian shopping areas have figured in the 'Notorious Markets' list for counterfeiting and piracy. The US trade representative's (USTR) office also listed Tank Road in Delhi, Heera Panna in Mumbai, Kidderpore in Kolkata and Millennium Centre in Aizawl in the ‘notorious markets' list. 

"The Trump Administration is committed to holding intellectual property rights violators accountable and to ensuring that American innovators and creators have a full and fair opportunity to use and profit from their work," US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement late Wednesday. 

Amazon issued a statement, accused the White House of advancing the President's "personal vendetta" against Amazon and its chief executive.  "The Administration wrongfully named Amazon's stores in Canada, France, Germany, India and the UK to the US Trade Representative's (USTR) annual Notorious Markets List, despite the fact that more than 99.9% of pages viewed worldwide by customers on Amazon have never had a report of counterfeit," said the ecommerce giant.
