Washington, DC – Internet Association Director, Trade Policy Jordan Haas issued the following statement in response to the the Office of The United States Trade Representative’s (USTR) release of the 2019 Review of Notorious Markets for Counterfeiting and Piracy report:

“American online marketplaces proactively combat the sale of counterfeits every day and work hand in glove with rightsholders to prevent their sale. IA member companies have developed robust notice and takedown procedures, strong partnerships with rightsholders and law enforcement, and proactive tools and measures to prevent counterfeits sales online. The industry will continue to develop new tools and partnerships, working closely with USTR, the Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement, and policymakers, in order to combat this problem.”
