Shopee. Bully

is the lead single from rockers Shinedown's  fourth studio album Amaryllis.  The song peaked at number three on the alternative rock chart in the USA  some 4 years ago.

Whenever I see black and blue I feel the past, I share the bruise
With everyone who’s come and gone
My head is clear my voice is strong, now I’m right here to right the wrong
We don’t have to take this back against the wall
We don’t have to take this we can end it all

We all should stand up to bullies. Now that all out MP's are friends, can they please HELP protect Malaysian businesses which is being bullied by the China owned Shopee .

They are able to do that because our Government is lax.  Malaysia should seriesly look at India's Consumer Protection (E-Commerce) Rules, 2020, to stop this bullying and also to bring in some much needed tax money into our coffers.

Essentially,  the act prevents e market place providers such as Shopee  from forcing vendors to sell their goods exclusively  via a single platform.

Currently, Shopee has been trying to curtail some of our merchants from selling their goods on rival sites. Basically, we are allowing a foreign company to dictate where our merchants can sell their goods. 
Shoppe  can do this because thus far because the MITI minister is sleeping on the job.  In India, foreign products can’t be sold online unless the firm whose product is being sold is registered with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT).

Malaysia should  do the same. Can Azmin Ali stand up for Malaysia,  in the way Hamzah Zainuddin  as Home Minister has repeatedly  stood up for Malaysia?
