UK adds OK to eBay

eBay continued its European grand tour today with another victory against L'Oreal, this time in the U.K.  Like its French and Belgian counterparts, the British court concluded that eBay was not liable for third party sales of counterfeit cosmetics or unauthorized products in the online marketplace.

But the fun isn't over yet.  Several other questions raised by the case, including whether eBay's purchase of L'Oreal trademarks to generate sponsored links in response to keyword searches constitutes infringement, will be referred to the European Court of Justice for further guidance.
