Default Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, and other trademark lawsuits against EBAY

Who is responsible for the policing of counterfeit products on eBay? If you think that's an interesting question and you're here in Gotham, hightail it down to Judge Richard Sullivan's courtroom in the Southern District where a bench trial gets underway today pitting Tiffany against the online auctioneer. Legal experts say a win for Tiffany

I think eBay will win...eBay can show due dilligance on their part with their Vero program etc but if Tiffany did not report the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ then the problem lies with Tiffany. There is but so much eBay can do unless Tiffany asks them to ban their products altogether or somone snitches on ⊗⊗⊗⊗ sellers.

Bloomberg.com: U.S.


Also says that "In addition to the $20 million, or 0.33 percent of annual revenue, that EBay says it spends on enforcement, the world's largest online auctioneer said it conducts computer searches for suspect items and assigns 250 of its 16,000 employees to prevent infringement."

I don't get it....you can go to new york and buy a rolex on the street for $50. Obviously you know it's not real. Duh!!! neither are the ones on eBay for that price! LOL How is that hurting rolex? The people that buy those couldn't afford a real one and were never a potential customer to begin with! So how do they claim that's costing them money?

The makers of the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ watches don't have a license to legally reproduce it as a Rolex even as a knock-off. Rolex-like. Or call it Rollex, Rolik. Which I've seen on the streets of ol' wicked New York.

A few months ago I was studying vintage-style classic Fender and Gibson guitars, made in china, open bid $0.99.

Im still baffled how some sellers operate under the radar and others get the boot for VERO items.

But, a business man can open a fried chicken joint and called it Kennedy Fried Chicken, or Ken's Lucky Fried Chicken.

I don't think Tiffany going to win, to many politics involved..fact remains ebay brings way to much money in the economy for them to just stop them. But if Tiffany does win, that will be the end of eBay as we know it.

LV and Dior is the same company, though. Just different brands. I still see 3000+ LV listings on eBay, though.

I have to be honest here, I can't spot a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ from an original. My wife has originals and ⊗⊗⊗⊗ and I can't tell them apart. I probably could if I cared about women's handbags, but I don't :D And I couldn't tell you on eBay which one is ⊗⊗⊗⊗ or not, but I would guess there's quite a few ⊗⊗⊗⊗ ones.

That's an understatement, there's as much ⊗⊗⊗⊗ on ebay as there is sushi in Japan. :D

The funny thing is this scenario:

- A seller from Hong Kong lists a genuine LV bag.
- A seller from the US lists a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ LV bag.

Who do you think gets suspended? When I'm in Hong Kong, I see more foreigners walking around with huge travel bags full of counterfeits than any Chinese citizen. And not just Americans, but Europeans and Africans alike. But anyone buying a LV bag from a US seller thinks he's getting the real thing.

So where are they actually manufactured? Is it Paris? or is that where the designers are from?

Agreed, it was about time they were really told about the counterfeiting issue. A large chunk of their business model is based around allowing counterfiets to be sold. They would be a lot smaller, and less known for their "value" if all of the c/f items were removed.

There again, it's fairly hard to police.

Actually it's not hard to police, just don't allow anything with a brand name to be auctioned off on ebay and they've fixed the problem.

With so much ⊗⊗⊗⊗ LVs going around, I'm surprised people still want one. When I see one, I automatically assume its ⊗⊗⊗⊗. Yesterday I was at Wal-Mart and this trashy girl had a LV. I just laughed. The name of Louis Vuitton is ruined and completely worthless now, except for those ghetto mamas who want one.

I'm glad ebay got sued. It gives me some small satisfaction.
