LVMH suffers partial setback in eBay court challenge

French luxury goods company LVMH suffered a setback in its attempts to stamp out counterfeit trading on eBay, as a French court partially overturned a previous ruling against the online auctioneer.

France’s highest appeals court found that a lower court did not have jurisdiction over the San Jose, California-based company’s US website but upheld the earlier ruling as applied to its French and British sites.

A host of perfume and cosmetic brands under the LVMH umbrella, including Christian Dior, Givenchy and Guerlain, had sued eBay claiming that the site allowed trade in counterfeit goods.
