Europe to ban eBay?

As read some minutes ago in this (german) post from the respected newschannel zdnet.de, the governmental authorities of France attack eBay heavily: they are demanding to forbid eBay to offer their services in France! The reason they give for this is, that eBay is just “hiding” as a intermediary between seller and buyer to cut their own responsibilities all commercial websites have in European Union by law. Ebay is in this way not protecting the customer enough and is breaking therefore a european law from 2000 reglementing online and offline auctions.

Ebay is (of course) rejecting all these complaints. A final decision in this case is not expected earlier than in 2 to 3 months. We’ll see then, how this will affect other’s european governments decisions. Maybe eBay in Europe will have a bad 2008! (story)
