Antitrust: Counterfeit Goods (and why your Amazon cart is full of them‪)‬ Rocketship.fm

    • Management

Due to the nature of Amazon's third-party seller system, it's becoming more difficult for for Amazon to actually police products for counterfeit goods. This is creating a problem where customers who get sold a fake product have no recourse. But not all counterfeits are bad. In this episode, we'll discuss the problems customers face with counterfeit items, but also the innovative counterfeit culture, like Shanzhai, which finds ways to improve existing products by working outside of copyright laws.
