    The AT900 was made in 2007 not 2006. This seller sells fake rackets as i can see many things wrong.

    1. The frame should say GUMMETAL not Elastic Ti.
    2. The tension sticker on the racket is wrong. JP rackets have a different sticker.
    3. There is no golden oval sticker on the cone.
    4. The wrapping on the grip is poor.
    5. The green cap is too light.
    6. The cases look like they are bad quality.
    7. The tension recommendation is wrong.
    8. There is no Ultimum Ti in the AT900

    Default eBay told to pay $61M to fashion brand for fakes

    By PIERRE-ANTOINE SOUCHARD, Associated Press Writer
    Mon Jun 30, 4:06 PM ET


    A French court ordered eBay Inc. to pay more than $61 million to a high-end fashion company Monday because counterfeit goods were sold on the auction site.

    The fashion company, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA, is home to such prestigious brands as Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Fendi, Emilio Pucci and Marc Jacobs, and had complained that it was hurt by the sale of knockoff bags and clothes on eBay.

    Pierre Godet, an adviser to LVMH Chairman and CEO Bernard Arnault, said the Paris court's decision was "an answer to a particularly serious question, on whether the Internet is a free-for-all for the most hateful, parasitic practices."

    EBay countered that LVMH is trying to crack down on Internet auctions merely because it is uncomfortable with the business model, which tends to cut out the middleman.

    "If counterfeits appear on our site, we take them down swiftly," eBay spokeswoman Sravanthi Agrawal said. "But today's ruling is not about counterfeits. Today's ruling is about an attempt by LVMH to protect uncompetitive commercial practices at the expense of consumer choice and the livelihood of law-abiding sellers that eBay empowers every day."

    She said eBay hopes to appeal the ruling.

    EBay has been sued repeatedly by luxury goods companies over its users' attempts to sell counterfeit products. Other plaintiffs against eBay have included jewelry company Tiffany & Co. in the U.S., watchmaker Montres Rolex S.A. in Germany, and cosmetics giant L'Oreal SA in Europe.

    Some companies have demanded that eBay forbid sales of even their legitimate products on the site because of alleged trademark infringement, while others accuse the auctioneer of reacting too slowly to reports of violations.

    The San Jose, Calif.-based company is a magnet for counterfeiters because of the sheer volume of products sold through its auction system and the difficulty of patrolling the fast-moving transactions. Like Google Inc.'s approach to removing copyright-infringing videos from its subsidiary YouTube, eBay relies heavily on intellectual-property owners to alert the company to suspicious postings on its site.

    Even so, eBay has argued that it spends millions of dollars a year trying to clean up counterfeit goods.

    The latest case in France pits two pillars of their industries — one old, one new — in a country whose courts often hold Internet companies responsible on matters protected elsewhere by freedom of speech. For example, French courts have ordered U.S. auction sites to keep Nazi paraphernalia away from French eyes.

    This ruling came down against eBay on two fronts. The court faulted the online company for "guilty negligence," for not doing enough to prevent fake goods from being sold on its site. The court also ruled that eBay was responsible for the "illicit sale" of perfumes from the LVMH empire, which can be sold only through the brands' "selective distribution networks."

    High-end fashion companies like LVMH make their money by selling exclusive products, and fight a never-ending battle against cheap ripoffs and alleged affronts to their trademarks.

    In an earlier instance of LVMH trying to protect its brands online, a Paris court in 2005 ordered Google to pay 200,000 euros (about $260,000 at the time) to Louis Vuitton for breach of trademark. In that case, Google had to stop displaying advertisements for Louis Vuitton's rivals when Web users typed Vuitton's name into the search engine.

    does that mean that the counterfit Yonex items would be banned off ebay too ?

    its hard to say whos right and whos wrong
    i mean, billions of people around the world use ebay, it would be SO DAMN HARD to track down everyone selling counterfit items.

    and even if they do, then ebay would have to suffer so much money loss aswell as alot of sellers would be banned or something..

    Default Are these Yonex BG-85 strings fake?

    Hi,

    Can you check these out for me and let me know if they are fake?

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/6-x-Packs-Yonex-B...QQcmdZViewItem

    The seller told me he has black, white, gray, and violet color. But as I search on other websites, the only colors available for BG-85 would be white, violet (lavender), and blue.

    Also the packaging color (red, instead of the normal blue color) seems a little bit fishy to me. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    beside the price is too good to be true, seller can also show you the picture of real string and send you fake.
    Depend on the dist code, the package can be different.
