The Trump administration is deciding if it will place some of Amazon.com Inc.'s foreign online platforms on a list of global marketplaces that deal in counterfeit goods, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The U.S. Trade Representative's Office would take action, according to the newspaper. The office is responsible for an annual list of "Notorious Markets," places that possibly sell or facilitate the sale of counterfeit goods and pirated content online or in physical stores.
Sources told the Journal that no decisions have been made. A similar push related to Amazon sites in 2018 failed.
Amazon told the publication that it prohibits counterfeit products and invests heavily to protect its store, customers and brands from counterfeits.
