NEW YORK -- Chinese e-commerce platform Pinduoduo was added to the U.S. “notorious markets" list, which flags retailers that facilitate a considerable amount of copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting, according to a U.S. Trade Representative report released Thursday.

Tencent Holdings-backed Pinduoduo is the third largest e-commerce site in China that offers low-priced products. It was one of 33 online markets and 25 brick-and-mortar markets to make the list.
