U.S. Adds WeChat, AliExpress to Notorious Piracy Market List
(Bloomberg) — The U.S. has added Chinese messaging platform WeChat and online marketplace AliExpress to its list of notorious markets for counterfeiting and piracy, an annual compilation of the worst intellectual-property abusers and counterfeiters.
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.-owned AliExpress and Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s WeChat are “two significant China-based online markets that reportedly facilitate substantial trademark counterfeiting,” the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said in a statement accompanying the release of the 2021 review Thursday.
