ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the status of development of eBay Inc. As lawyers for Tiffany & Co. prepare to take on eBay Inc. for aiding counterfeit sales of its merchandise, the entire luxury goods market from Burberry Ltd, to Gucci Group N.V. is rooting for victory from the sidelines. But the lawsuit has not shaken eBay's hold on investors as one of the top survivors of the dot com era; most industry observers think the lawsuit has little chance of succeeding. It is not surprising that in June, Tiffany filed federal charges against the online auctioneer, alleging that eBay aids its sellers in trademark infringement.
