Offer Manipulations on Sales Web Portals

2016-08-23 16:13

On 2 August 2016 the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) published two rulings, that if someone lists products on web portals such as Amazon, he is considered liable for contents provided by third parties (AZ I ZR 110/15 and AZ I ZR 140/14).

The situation is that web portals such as Amazon  permit e-tailers who list their articles to make use of the descriptions and pictures of those who listed them first if the product has already been published on the platform. Generally, this is an advantage for all following e-tailers who want to save the effort. At the same time for instance Amazon makes it possible to provide a quick supply for comprehensive offers made by many e-tailers.
