Why should Tiffany's have to fund the enforcement of eBay's users' compliance with the law?
Because that's what businesses do to protect their interests. Websites have to look for scraped copy and media, others have to protect their trademarks and patents, others protect their client list - and that's their job. It's a fact of business.
I say it's good that we don't have to shut down the Internet so Tiffany's can sell more of their ridiculously overpriced handbags. If you ask me, that's what the problem is - that the original product is so heinously overpriced and marked up that it opens the door wide open to selling fake copies. Does this have any parallels with illegal music downloads?
