Federal Supreme Court on liability of Amazon for infringements occurring under the FBA service

Federal Supreme Court: When shipping infringing goods for third parties as part of the FBA service, Amazon is under an increased obligation to inspect and control its inventory following a notice from the trademark owner. This was decided by the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH; case ref. I ZR 20/17) in a recent decision, which our colleague Martin Fiebig obtained for our client Coty.
