On April 1st the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decided in favour of eBay (for the most part) in their case against Tiffany and Company. The case revolved around the advertisements that eBay had placed for Tiffany jewellery being sold on its site, and the fact that some of the merchandise being sold by its users was counterfeit. Tiffany argued that eBay should be found liable for direct and contributory trademark infringement, dilution, and false advertising.
