Amazon Europe and, in particular, on the Conclusions issued on the matter by the Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union. The central issue of the intervention is whether there is direct liability on the part of the operator of an e-commerce platform for the sale by third parties of counterfeit goods on that platform and whether the operator actually makes a “use” of the trademark within the meaning of Article 9(2) of EU Regulation No. 2017/1001.
