Score another victory over industry counterfeiters, and the people who sell them. A French court has ruled that eBay must pay 80,000 euros (or around $117,000) to LVMH for allowing fakes of their fragrances to be auctioned on the site. This summer, LVMH scored a huge victory and has since put eBay on alert, and their lawyers working some major hours on the cases, according to WWD. But the rulings are still going both ways. The auction site had to pay damages to Hermès, but won a case that stated they weren't responsible for fake Tiffany & Co merchandise being sold. I guess this could be a product of different courts in different countries but I would hope eBay would at least try to monitor to to the best of their abilities. Because you can't stop every phony, but we all know how much it sucks to get your eBay purchase and find out it's not the real deal. The worst.
