EUIPO writes about the repport:
“In 2020, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), through the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, commissioned a research study on intellectual property (IP) infringement through vendor accounts on third-party trading platforms. The purpose of the research was to enhance the level of understanding about the ways in which IP infringers misuse online trading platforms to market goods and services infringing IP rights, how the business models adopted by IP infringers work, and thereby provide new knowledge to tackle the challenge of this phenomenon more effectively.”
