NEW EVIDENCE JUST IN - IMPOSSIBLE TO REFUTE THE NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF COUNTERFEITS AVAILABLE ONLINE:
SHOP SAFE Act Brings Greater Transparency and Accountability to Online Marketplaces
The SHOP SAFE Act will establish better and uniform rules for secure and safe conduct of e-commerce in the United States. This will immediately require Internet sellers to play by the same rules that have governed American business and safe-guarded American consumers for more than a century.
At its core, the Act holds online marketplaces accountable for screening third-party sellers, disclosing more information about the seller to online shoppers, removing counterfeit and stolen product listings, and barring bad actors from selling on their platforms – consumer protections that have all been missing for far too long.
"Without the SHOP SAFE Act, American consumers are at risk from fake, illicit and stolen products available online. It’s time that online sellers start complying with the same, long-established federal health and safety regulations that govern all commercial transactions. Every American household shopping online is entitled to a shopping experience that is safe and secure from fraud." -- Jeffrey Hardy, TRACIT Director-General
Statements of support from industry sector associations
"AAFA will not relent in sounding the alarm around the tools we need to prevent the sale of dangerous counterfeit apparel, footwear, and accessories and protect America’s intellectual property. Counterfeit apparel, footwear, and accessories threaten the health and safety of consumers by exposing them to potentially harmful chemicals or footwear that can fall apart causing trip and fall hazards and by exposing their financial information to criminals." -- AAFA president and CEO Steve Lamar
