Very interesting news, and another blow to the copycats and those who support them. :wink:

Very interesting indeed. If this holds up in court then it will surely affect all online auctioneers.

I wonder if the US and other countries outside Europe will adopt a similar stance...

The important part of that ruling is that eBay has been promoting the KOs by purchasing adwords. Remove this, and eBay is just a platform that does not promote anything and thus cannot be liable for KOs.
