Counterfeit books are still a big issue on Amazon
I can only write about the ongoing problem with books.
But Amazon has taken so little action, there could also be a problem with other counterfeit goods.
You could think that identifying counterfeit books would be easy. If you publish a book on Amazon, surely Amazon could at least check for plagiarism when pirates copy your text.
The problem is not new. I have been writing about pirated ebooks and books for a very long time.
Third party sellers are making a lot of money from pirated, fake and counterfeit books.
More importantly, so is Amazon.
