Every year, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative comes out with a list of “notorious markets” for counterfeit goods in other countries. The list includes places in the real world, like Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar and the Silk Market in Beijing, as well as retail websites.

This week, the American Apparel & Footwear Association asked the federal government to put Amazon on that list. Specifically, its websites in France and India. But the AAFA says the U.S. version of Amazon.com has many of the same problems.

Editor’s note: “Marketplace” has ordered some of the merchandise in question from Amazon. We’ll report back soon.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
