Many articles on this one this week. An lady buys a hangbag from a charity shop and puts it in the style of a Radley bag. She's now being sued by Radley for selling it on eBay. She put it was only in the "style" of Radley not that it was a Radley bag. Your thoughts MNers
I agree with the points here and eBay is awashed with fakes. I know this to my own experience. But if someone is selling something to say it genuine and authentic when it's clearly a fake a can understand someone being sued but in the style of to be is so different
I think it was the naming of the brand in the advert that is wrong. She was clearly trying to generate more interest in the advert by using the word Radley. It plants the idea in someone's head. She should have just called it "handbag with dog motif" or similar.
I've not shopped on eBay since buying what I thought was a genuine mulberry bag which turned out to be a fake Chinese one. Paypal we're great though got my money back But I thought I was buying a authentic mulberry not a Copy
They should not be allowed to put a brand name in the title unless they are the brand name. If they must then they should be made to call it radleyish, or converseish. That way people looking for cheap copies can search those -ish words but people wanting genuine products don't worry about misleading items coming up.
