Breaking: LVMH Wins Landmark Lawsuit Against eBay

LVMH Moet Hennessey Louis Vuitton won a big victory over eBay today in French court: The auction site must pay LVMH 40 million euros, or $63.2 million, WWD reports, for selling both fake and real LVMH goods outside their “desired retail channel.”

Earlier this month eBay had to pay Hermès $30,000 for selling counterfeit Hermès handbags. Chump change, comparatively speaking.
