Taobao was singled out in an anti-counterfeiting report

Following Consumer Rights Day on March 15, 2009, China’s prominent consumer rights advocate, Wang Hai, wrote an IP report against online auction website Taobao.com.

His report, submitted to both to the Zhejiang Provincial Department for Industry and Commerce and the Consumer Rights and Protection Department of China’s State Administration for Industry and Commerce, claims the website conceals information regarding its online store owners, conspires with its online store owners in not issuing shopping records such as invoices, allows online stores to operate illegally, ignores online credit fraud, and releases advertisements for fake and substandard goods.

Taobao.com responded in the local media claiming Wang Hai lacks online shopping experience and does not understand how Taobao.com works. Further the representative added that Taobao.com had doubled their information about its online store owners.

Wang Hai wrote the report based on consumer complaints that he reportedly had received.
