Legal "After a series of one-sided hearings, luxury goods maker Chanel has won recent court orders against hundreds of websites trafficking in counterfeit luxury goods. A federal judge in Nevada has agreed that Chanel can seize the domain names in question and transfer them all to US-based registrar GoDaddy. The judge also ordered 'all Internet search engines' and 'all social media websites' - explicitly naming Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Bing, Yahoo, and Google - to 'de-index' the domain names and to remove them from any search results."

Yet Ebay will automatically suspend the account of any seller who dares to even use the word iPhone in a listing for a phone accessory or sell an item that even vaguely resembles an Apple product.


Are you sure? When did you last check that? 'Cause searching for "iPhone" on eBay.com gives 703100 results, "iPhone charger" 81500, "iPhone USB cable" 25230.
