Bill Aims to Curb Online Sales of Counterfeit, Stolen Goods

This week, the OMA provided testimony to the House Commerce and Labor Committee in support of House Bill 272. In an attempt to curb counterfeit and stolen goods from being sold online, HB 272 would require online marketplaces to collect basic information from third-party sellers selling goods on these platforms. As e-commerce has grown in popularity, especially during the pandemic, it is important that online platforms have a minimum standard of seller verification to protect both consumers and legitimate businesses. 6/10/2021
