Jan. 16, 2018—With the release of the "2017 Out-of-Cycle Review of Notorious Markets Report," the United States Trade Representative made the decision to relist Alibaba’s Taobao platform as a notorious market.

The report, released on Friday, Jan. 12, identifies 43 online and physical markets around the world that engage in and facilitate substantial copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting.

Among other measures, USTR calls on Alibaba to consider banning widely-counterfeited products such as brake pads and other automotive parts not ordinarily sold on consumer-to-consumer marketplaces.
