    For the first time, Amazon is taking counterfeit sellers to court. The move comes after several sellers expressed strong concerns about their businesses getting ripped off by Amazon, which is not doing anything to curb distribution of fake, poor quality products on its ecommerce platform.

    Notably, even Apple had said recently that a lot of its accessories listed on Amazon are fake products. From a CNBC report: On Monday, Amazon filed suit against a group of sellers for infringing on athletic training equipment developed by TRX.

    In a second case, Amazon sued sellers who are offering fake versions of a patented moving product called Forearm Forklift.

    There's no way Amazon can litigate away the problem. The company generates over $75 billion a year in commerce, and about half the volume now comes from third-party sellers.

    However, with Amazon showing its willingness to take abusers to court, the company can at least hope to deter counterfeit sellers with the threat of potential legal action.

    No big deal. Customers are the fool here. Should sue customer who buy cheap fakes. There is no such things as cheap in this world without a price. Try to be stingy and seek out low price branded items then be prepared to pay for fakes. Logic is simple here. If there is no demand, seller cannot survive.
