Navigate to the trustworthy Berkshire Hathaway Company Businesswire. Read “IPR Center, Amazon Launch ‘Operation Fulfilled Action’ to Stop Counterfeits.” Note that IPR means U.S. government’s National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center. Here’s a passage I found interesting:
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The U.S. government’s National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) and Amazon today announced the launch of a joint operation to prevent counterfeit goods from entering the U.S. and help protect American consumers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and DHL are also supporting the operation.
“The IPR Center plays a critical role in securing the global supply-chain to protect the health and safety of the American public,” said IPR Center Director Steve Francis. “However, our efforts are increased with partners like Amazon to identify, interdict, and investigate individuals, companies, and criminal organizations engaging in the illegal importation of counterfeit products. This joint operation is our latest public-private initiative bringing us one step closer to border security.”
