This is the May 27, 2021 hearing on "SHOP SAFE Act: Stemming the Rising Tide of Unsafe Counterfeit Products Online," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Henry C. Johnson, Jr.: "Welcome to this afternoon's hearing on the SHOP SAFE Act [Stopping Harmful Offers on Platforms by Screening Against Fakes in E-Commerce Act of 2021], stemming the rising tide of unsafe counterfeit products online. [...] As consumers have moved online, counterfeit--counterfeiters have embraced the internet also. Their tools are becoming more sophisticated and their targeted products becoming more wide ranging as they dupe unwitting consumers into purchasing fakes. Last Congress, this Subcommittee examined the issue of unsafe counterfeits closely, and in July of 2019 we held a hearing during which we heard about the dangers that counterfeits can and have caused. [...] The SHOP SAFE Act is a legislative solution that builds on our July 2019 hearing and on the outreach we have continued since that time." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kari Kammel, Meredith Simpson, Jonathan Berroya, and Natasha Reed.
