Based on substantiated reports, China is the number one offender in the counterfeiting of trademark and intellectual property related to electronic cigarettes. Such activities create job loss for American workers, which translate into fewer profits for businesses and major losses of revenues. President Obama announced the creation of a Trade Enforcement Unit that will investigate unfair trade practices in countries like China creating more inspections to prevent counterfeit, and unsafe goods, from crossing United States borders.
