German Court Overturns eBay Shopper's Conviction

A German state court in the southwestern city of Karlsruhe on Friday overturned the conviction of a man who was found guilty of purchasing stolen goods over eBay in a case which may have hurt the online auctioneer's business in its top market after the United States. In a previous ruling, a lower court in Pforzheim had fined the man 1,200 euros ($1,700), arguing that the low price should have been a tip off that the device was stolen.
