FILE - In this Friday, Jan. 23, 2015 file photo, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group founder and executive chairman Jack Ma speaks during the panel session "An Insight, An Idea" at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

That honeymoon ended this week. In a stinging report, a Cabinet agency accused Alibaba Group Ltd. of allowing sales of fake goods and hurting consumers. (AP Photo/Michel Euler, File)
