EBay Inc. won a German court ruling in a case brought by Rolex Group over sales of counterfeit watches on EBay's website.
The decision in Dusseldorf found that Rolex couldn't show that any similar counterfeit goods were offered on EBay after the company had been alerted to the sales.
EBay faces a hearing next month in London on similar claims by L'Oreal. EBay has had mixed success in cases over counterfeits, winning last year against Tiffany & Co. and L'Oreal. It lost to LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Hermes International.
