In this episode, Christine Abely, faculty fellow at New England Law Boston, discusses her article "E-Commerce Transactions and Country of Origin Marking for Imported Products: A Gap Between Statutory Purpose and Legal Requirements," which is published in the Virginia Journal of International Law. Abely describes the history of country of origin designations in customs law, and how they were intended to protect consumers by providing them with salient information about consumer products. She observes that consumers may not currently get as much information about the origin of products purchased online as they want or deserve. And she discusses legislative proposals to mandate additional disclosures. Abely is on Twitter at @CEAbely.
