Let the auctions continue

A judge ruled in favor of eBay during a lawsuit launched by Tiffany’s. The jewelry maker charged that eBay knowingly advertised fakes as genuine Tiffany products harming their image. The judge ruled that Tiffany’s did not adequately prove their case. eBay did admit it knew some of the auctions listed were not genuine products but at the same time they simply provide the buyers and sellers a place make transactions and does not confirm authenticity. Other Internet companies are breathing a sigh of relief as this is viewed as a precedent providing some immunity from being sued for trademark infringement.

I find it hard to believe that many people have been fooled when buying some jewelry off of eBay at a fraction of the price AND assuming that it is indeed a genuine brand name product. If the deal is too good to be true, it probably is a fake. Also, if the seller is located in Asia, it is DEFINITELY a fake. Anyways, let the auctions continue! Let stolen products and fakes alike be sold to unsuspecting buyers on eBay!
