eBay Lauded for Its Fight Against Fakes

A European company that offers services to brands in their efforts to combat counterfeit goods granted eBay an award for its cooperation with rights holders to address the sale of fakes.

eBay announced the news of the REACT award on the eBay Main Street government relations website on Tuesday as follows:

eBay Wins Prestigious Anti-counterfeiting Award
During the recent REACT APAC annual conference in Hanoi, eBay received an award for our cooperation with rights holders to address the sale of counterfeit products and our proactive efforts towards brand protection.

REACT is a monitoring agency based in Europe that represents top brands by investigating and reporting online and offline counterfeiting activities. The award was accepted by Stephen Man, VP of eBay Legal for APAC (Asia Pacific).

This award is in recognition of eBay’s cooperation with top brands in the fight against counterfeits.

eBay has worked with REACT on a global basis for many years and we are quite proud of the collaborative work done in this area. We would like to thank REACT for this honor.

You can find a list of the brands who are members of REACT on the React.org website.

  1. What really makes me sad is that Ebay has never, to my knowledge at least, even tried to deal with fakes of antiques and vintage collectibles. Fake Occupied Japan or Nippon or Heisey or anything else old? Not ;in their interest, since they would lose the fees earned from the listings. Very sad, methinks, and condemable.

    1. Yep eBay has been supplying “most searched” data to the Chinese for many years. Telling them exactly what products to counterfeit so they can be sold on eBay.

  2. eBay will NEVER do anything to offset counterfeits, or change any of their many unsavory business practices, unless they’re forced to by the government. Otherwise it’s business (schemes, scams, fraud) as usual. eBay are proponents of all kinds of fraud themselves. More money for them that way. At eBay it’s the only way since the marketplace and company are in decline and have been for decade.
