French court fines eBay €40m over counterfeits
eBay needs to wake up & act accordingly
This is all well & good but eBay always act like God to their users & due to this ruling all you will see on eBay now are cheap pound shop items. For instance i sold some 100% authentic nike trainers i bought from JJB which i still had the receipt for & got a warning for counterfeit item & the listing cancelled.
Even though i could produce the receipt ebay said tough "we decided we didnt like the look of them" - absoluteley no help at all. & if they decide to suspend your account they expect payment in full for all the listings to date even though they have no intention of providing the service they have charged for "I'm sure this is illegal" to boot they absolutly refuse you access to your bill & will not provide you with a list of what they demand payment for. They make enough money to police things properly. They could easily combat it by a seller having to produce evidence & fax it in that the item that is being listed is authentic & then they have to agree before the listing appears on the site for sale. Simply a receipt or the documentation that goes with the handbag or whatever you are selling. If you're a company selling new stuff you will have your dealership or your suppliers dealership details. should not be a big problem.
