This article is mostly bogus; counterfeits are a real problem, but this article isn't actually about counterfeits. The seller is upset with their much cheaper competition that isn't even violating their patents, or Amazons rules.
Also, I find it funny when articles like this imply patent violations but never include the patent number. Patents are very explicit and it can be very misleading to imply a product is violating a patent when in fact they aren't. Even violating a single clause in a patent doesn't mean the patent is violated; individual clauses may not be enforceable due to prior litigation.
