The rapid growth of e-commerce has revolutionized the way
goods are bought and sold, allowing for counterfeit and pirated
goods to flood our borders and penetrate our communities and
homes. Illicit goods trafficked to American consumers by ecommerce
platforms and online third-party marketplaces
threaten public health and safety, as well as national security.
This illicit activity impacts American innovation and erodes the
competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers and workers.
Consumers must be confident in the safety, quality, and
authenticity of the products they purchase online. DHS is
committed to combating counterfeiters and pirates with the help
of our U.S. Government partners and private sector
stakeholders – who are critical to helping secure supply chains
to stem the tide of counterfeit and pirated goods.
