    • eBay has won a long-running court case brought by L’Oreal and other luxury brands which accused it of failing to do enough to stop sales of counterfeit goods on its site.

      For its part the auctioneer has always said it is willing to work with brands to protect their intellectual property but will not accept an active policing role. So it will respond to takedown notices, but not pre-check every item offered for sale on its site.
