That is just common sense. About time they got around to saying so.
I think Ebay needs to act responsibly and remove auctions that are clearly fakes, but they should not be held responsible if one or two go through...
Thought. If a judge has now said knockoff jewelry can be sold on eBay and is the responsibility of the company being knocked off, what about all the replica Transformers now banned from being sold on eBay?
Good. Fair's fair, right?
Just to be clear - I agree, this should have never even been an issue, it's not e-bay's responsibility.
EBay is still removing KOs, bootlegs and such from ebay. This ruling did not mean that users on eBay can sell them willy nilly.
All this ruling means is the ownership is not on eBAY to determine what is legit or not. It is up to the company to search eBay and notify eBay.
So Basically the trademark holder has to constantly watch ebay and report people for their own trademark.
This is the same thing going on with Viacom and Youtube. Should Youtube be monitoring for copyright issues or do the copyright owners need to notify Youtube for every infringement. At least ebay hands out account bans where youtube is simply removing videos.
So no, this does not mean LOL KO TFs.
