Pinduoduo: Counterfeiting Hurts Investment

While it had just made a thundering entry to Nasdaq, the Chinese marketplace Pinduoduo, entered the turmoil. Pinduoduo is under scrutiny after China’s State Administration for Market Regulation (CSAMR) announced that it was investigating claims according to which Pinduoduo would sell counterfeit goods. Pinduoduo is accused of being lenient in the fight against counterfeiting.
The CSAMR’s announcement caused Pinduoduo’s stock price to lose 30% in a few days. Counterfeiting damages the reputation of marketplaces and, by the same, the confidence that investors give e-commerce companies. Before investing, make sure that the business model of the company provides the necessary measures to proactively respect intellectual property rights. U.S. law firms are investigation whether Pinduoduo misled and withheld information to public investors.
Meanwhile, Alibaba has announced that its alliance against counterfeiting program has now read from a hundred members.
