BBC NEWS | Business | Court fines eBay over fake goods
A French court has ordered eBay to pay 40m euros (Â£31.6m; $63m) to luxury goods group LVMH for allowing online auctions of fake copies of its goods.
The BBC’s Hugh Schofield in Paris says the ruling is seen as a landmark, because it could oblige eBay to rethink its business model.
Personally, I think that’s great news. Ebay has been a source for stolen/pirated music for years.
