Alibaba's Taobao Placed Back on USTR's 'Notorious Markets' List
(Beijing) — Alibaba's Taobao has been named a "notorious market" by a Washington government agency because of the online marketplace's alleged involvement in the trade of pirated goods.
Taobao's inclusion on the annual "notorious" list, released by the United States Trade Representative (USTR) office on Wednesday, marks a setback for the e-commerce giant, which had been removed from the list four years ago.
