German courts erode eBay purchases

A very interesting link that arrives courtesy of Bob Rietjens. A German court has given users the right to return items purchased from eBay within two weeks of purchase, provided that it has been bought from a commercial supplier. This seems consisten with the Distance Selling Directive, but this only gives seven working days to return items.

A very interesting ruling. It still doesn’t affect normal C2C customers, but it seems like the borders between consumers and commercial suppliers are becoming blurred in eBay. Who knows?
