Hold Amazon responsible: Amazon partners with the U.S. government to stop the sale of counterfeit Super Bowl merchandise

From CNBC:

Amazon is teaming up with a government counterfeit watchdog to spot and stop the sale of phony Super Bowl merchandise.

Amazon and the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, a task force that’s overseen by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, will share information about counterfeits “in real time” before, during and after Sunday’s contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Amazon announced Friday.

Intelligence on suspected counterfeiters will be collected on the ground in Tampa, where Super Bowl LV is being held, in online stores and at U.S. ports of entry, Amazon said. Information that may be shared includes physical addresses, supply routes and shippers.

Federal officials are typically on high alert around the Super Bowl for fake merchandise. On Wednesday, Homeland Security announced it seized more than 169,000 counterfeit sports-related items since the last Super Bowl. In all, it’s worth $45 million.
