Court Rejects eBay Memorabilia Appeal
from the good-decision dept
A Court of Appeals has refused to hear a case from some angry buyers of some sports memorabilia on eBay. The merchandise was fake, and because you always sue the entity with the most money, these buyers sued eBay. eBay’s defense, of course, was that they’re just the venue, and they have nothing to do with the merchandise. The court, wisely, agreed. This is the same sort of case as ones that question whether or not ISPs are responsible for what content their users put online. It’s good to see a smart court decision about the internet every once in a while.
