    ROTFL! This is hilarious!

    The same can be said for ALL the brand names represented on Ebay. Inaccurate and incomplete information is the hallmark of this 'Garage sale' style market. DUH! So why not just shut down altogether?

    "In its court submission, LVMH provided detailed information on just 1,341 listings out of 200 million listings that are live on eBay every day. eBay believes that these listings were posted by people who set out to deliberately circumvent the extensive systems that had been put in place. In total, 1091 listings (81%) that LVMH reported, the seller did not accurately describe the item being sold, containing either misspelled brand names, no brand names at all, or only pictures of the product."

    That's why nearly all sellers use a photo. Doh! It sounds like a right stitch-up...

    Oh, LVMH, hopefully you'll one day be taken to the cleaners for reformulating your products without informing the public, while using the same product names. EU regulations or not, material scarcity or not, that is fraud.

    But in the meantime, continue digging your grave - the deeper the better...

    I don't like ebay as a corporation, though I am a frequent user of its service, but against the LVMH octopus I wish them the best of luck.
