Liz Ward in Forbes Magazine: “Coty vs. Amazon”
Virtuoso Legal Principal Liz Ward appeared in an article for Forbes magazine today, as she was asked to comment at length about the prominent case of Coty Germany GmbH v Parfümerie Akzente GmbH (or colloquially, “Coty vs. Amazon”)
The case in question concerned Coty, a producer of luxury cosmetics brands, seeking to stop one of its distributors (Parfumerie Akzente) from selling these luxury brands through online portals – most prominently, Amazon.com and eBay.
Luxury brands view this decision by the CJEU as a victory – as it allows them to exert greater control over the sale of their high-end brands.
