what really suprises me is the fact that companies whose brands are being exploited on ebay have not taken legal action against them. it will happen. only takes one, and ebay will be liable for billions
EBAY would only be liable under the Federal Trade Commission Act if they knew of the fraud and wilfully disregarded doing anything from it. Plus the Act specifically excepts "publisherss, broadcasters, and printers engaged in the dissemination of information or reproduction of printed matter who public, broadcast or reproduce material w/out knowledge of its deceptive character" from liability. EBAY is not liable just as newspapers and magazines are not liable for printing deceptive ads.
not the same thing. you need to get real. ebay is the same as Barneys letting vendors sell hookey goods, and say not my responsibility cos they are sold by someone else. what crap. this will hurt ebay at some point.
