Retailers Seek Port Labor Accord to Avoid Holiday Delays
The National Retail Federation urged workers and management of West Coast ports to reach a new labor agreement and avoid delaying holiday shipments. "The failure to reach an agreement is now having a significant impact on port operations and contributing to port congestion in significant and damaging ways," the federation said yesterday in a letter. "We are deeply troubled by the fact that no apparent progress has been made in the negotiations since August." West Coast ports, led by facilities in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, are the crucial entry points for merchandise from Asia. Retailers want assurances there will be no labor disruption through November, when most shipments are complete for their busiest season at year-end, according to the letter, sent to Robert McEllrath, president of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union, and James McKenna, chairman and chief executive officer of the Pacific Maritime Association, representing employers.

PayPal spin-off to open door wider for Apple Pay, NFC
A Javelin executive at the Mobile Shopping Summit 2014 said PayPal's split with eBay would provide an opportunity for Apple Pay and NFC to drive adoption. The executive's "Mobile Wallet - State of the Union" session looked at new data showing consumer support of mobile wallet solutions and a worldwide, leading support for NFC payments. The next step will be for NFC to woo MCX merchants to gain momentum. "The number one brand is PayPal," said Mary Monahan, executive vice president of mobile at Javelin Strategy and Research, San Francisco. "They have 152 million active accounts, and we know they will be splitting with eBay next year. "I can tell you that whenever you have a big action like that, no matter how good you are, it takes a company's mind off of what's going on," she said. "They'll be busy doing the split, and that's going to allow other players to move ahead." (Source mobilecommercedaily.com)

Online research is the new window shopping, according to Google
One-third of all shopping searches on Google occur between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., because shopping no longer stops when the malls close. Content supports those searches, as retailers want to show examples of how the latest features in the newest Lexus work, how Western boots are worn, or how kitchen mixers work. Online has become the new window shopping experience, per the Holiday Shopper Intentions research conducted by Google and Ipsos MediaCT. Consumers go online to research products and check for local store availability at retailers like Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Macy's and others, but they also increasingly tune into YouTube or Pinterest for ideas.

ISIS Planned Attack - TARGET: Unnamed Canadian Mall
An NBC News report says Canadian authorities have heard would-be terrorists discussing potential ISIS-inspired "knife and gun" attacks against Canadian and US targets in Canada. The report quotes unidentified US intelligence officials. NBC says the targets were in public places and crowded streets. RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said the force has about 63 active security investigations on 90 suspected extremists who intend to join fights abroad or who have returned to Canada. "The attitude and the policy of ISIS is not really high tech sabotage or terrorism, their position has always been to use low tech, you know someone like that going to a mall, shooting and stabbing people. It's different. It's terrorism of course, but it's terrorism diffused, low tech, a bunch of guys going to a mall and killing a handful of people and or going to another public place and hurting people. Al-Qaeda preferred the big spectacular terrorist act, a mega explosion. ISIS is much smarter because it can inspire their followers or their potential followers by simply saying do something small for the cause, go and kill somebody, go and cut somebody’s head off," he says.

Retail giants Walmart, Sears and Lowe's are suffering in Canada - Target's Not Alone - The Canadian Squeeze  Walmart Canada Corp., Target Canada Corp., Sears Canada Inc. and Lowe's Canada - all large-format retailers with origins in the U.S. - are either posting diminishing returns or operating losses, says a new state of the retail industry report from Desjardins Securities analyst Keith Howlett. Same-store sales at Walmart Canada have declined in six of the last seven quarters, with just a 0.2% rise in the most recent quarter. Home improvement chain Lowe's has had strong recent same-store sales growth, but that's been in part due to the closure and conversion of Rona's big-box stores, and the retailer is still losing money as it heads into its eighth year of operations in Canada. In the meantime, multiple smaller Canadian chains including Reitmans Ltd., Le Chateau Inc., Danier Leather Inc. and Bikini Village Inc. have been struggling and reducing store count as they compete with stronger players such as Gap Inc., Joe Fresh and H&M. In the last two years, retailers including Best Buy and sister chain Future Shop, Toys R Us Canada, Staples and Indigo Books & Music have also closed some stores in favour of opening smaller locations and reducing overall square footage while they focus on building up their online sales channels.

Canada's "Combating Counterfeit Products Act" passes latest hurdle
Canada's Combating Counterfeit Products Act is inching closer to reality, passing its third reading in Parliament late last week. Brian Isaac, partner at Smart & Biggar Fetherstonhaugh, has welcomed the move, noting: "While some concerns have been raised regarding the provisions of Bill C-8, reform of Canada's anti-counterfeiting laws is overdue and the anti-counterfeiting community in Canada welcomes the apparent renewed interest in the issue by the government of Canada." World Trademark Review has previously reported on the bill, which was introduced in March 2013 and would amend the Copyright Act and the Trademarks Act to add new civil and criminal remedies and new border measures in both acts. Specifically, the enactment would:

● create new civil causes of action with respect to activities that sustain commercial activity in infringing copies and counterfeit trademarked goods;
● create new criminal offences for trademark counterfeiting that are analogous to existing offences in the Copyright Act;
● create new criminal offences prohibiting the possession or export of infringing copies or counterfeit trademarked goods, packaging or labels;
● enact new border enforcement measures enabling customs officers to detain goods that they suspect infringe copyright or trademark rights and allowing them to share information relating to the detained goods with rights owners who have filed a request for assistance, in order to give the rights owners a reasonable opportunity to pursue a remedy in court;
● exempt the importation and exportation of copies and goods by an individual for their personal use from the application of the border measures; and
● add the offences set out in the Copyright Act and the Trademarks Act to the list of offences set out in the Criminal Code for the investigation of which police may seek judicial authorisation to use a wiretap. (Source worldtrademarkreview.com)

Trial begins for man charged in mass shooting, double murder at Eaton Centre
The man accused of murdering two people in a mass shooting at Toronto's busy Eaton Centre is in court today facing a jury at the first day of his trial. Christopher Husbands is facing two counts of first-degree murder and five counts of aggravated assault – one for each person injured by the spray of bullets fired in the middle of the mall's crowded food court back in June 2012. One of the injured was a 13-year-old boy who was shot in the head but recovered from his wounds. A pregnant woman who was desperately trying to flee the mall after the shots rang out was trampled by the crowd. For that, the suspect is also facing one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm Husbands, who was 23 at the time the shooting took place, has pleaded not guilty to all charges and will defend his case in the coming weeks at the downtown Toronto courthouse where the trial is taking place. Husbands is also facing two multi-million dollar civil lawsuits from the families of the deceased, 22-year-old Nixon Nirmalendran and 24-year-old Ahmed Hassan. The lawsuit also names Hamilton and Toronto police, Eaton Centre owner Cadillac Fairview Corp. and the province. (Source cp24.com)

Police bust $200K shoplifting ring operating out of a few houses in Vancouver  They have recovered more than $200,000 in stolen high-end clothing.

Counterfeit Credit Card Ring Suspects Were Heavily Armed - Connected to Data Breaches  Police made more arrests in a counterfeit card ring that targeted local stores. A no-knock warrant at a southeast Boise home early Thursday morning, yielded a machine to manufacture fake credit cards, along with dozens of guns, including military-grade assault rifles. This bust came weeks after one alleged member of the ring, 30-year-old Giraldo Nelson of Miramar, Florida, was arrested for using counterfeit cards in Boise. Police say he bought about $12,000 in gift cards at a number of retail stores. The credit card information used on the counterfeit cards was stolen during one of the recent corporate data breaches. Recent breaches have hit consumers who shop at Target, Albertsons, Home Depot and other stores, although police declined to specify which breach the account info in this case came from. Curt Crum, special services manager for the criminal investigations division, said credit card crimes have been on the uptick in the area. Earlier in the week, 12 people from Atlanta, Georgia were arrested and charged in a similar scheme. Almost weekly, we're seeing crews from around the country show up in our area," Crum said. "The trend is is for people who were involved in street crimes violent crime have turned to this kind of crime, but unfortunately they bring that same mentality with them as they come to our area," he said.
