Amazon's Counterfeit Problem

published 2 weeks ago

This week will usher in one of the busiest shopping days of the year, Black Friday. According to market research company eMarketer, Canadians are on track to spend $64.56 billion shopping online by the end of 2019, with the largest destination being Amazon. The popularity of online shopping has led to a rise in counterfeit products, and it's not just luxury goods. It can be everything from cell-phone chargers and toys, to toothbrushes and other everyday items. The Agenda explores the issue, and why it's getting harder to tell the difference between what's real and what's fake online.
