Ebay Wins Tiffany Trademark Case

July 15, 2008 eBay today won a landmark trademark case that had been filed against the company by Tiffany. The jewelery retailer had sued eBay in 2004, alleging that many of the items being advertised on eBay as Tiffany merchandise were actually fakes. But eBay responded - and the court agreed - that eBay cannot be held responsible for policing the millions of customer listings on its site for potential misuse of Tiffany’s trademark.
