Antitrust Victory Affirms eBay’s Right to Pull Sellers’ Accounts

A California court has handed eBay a significant victory in a legal dispute concerning the e-commerce giant’s right to suspend the accounts of sellers who it believes misrepresent merchandise on their stores and run afoul of the company’s terms of service. In late January, the California Court of Appeal for the Fourth Appellate District upheld an earlier series of rulings exonerating eBay for alleged antitrust violations in barring offending merchants from selling on the marketplace.
