Facebook and Gucci have taken joint legal action to fight against the sale of counterfeit products on the social network, which has very explicit conditions of use regarding the products that can be sold on it or not, especially in the new stores launched last summer.
Facebook and Gucci have denounced the heads of a network for the sale of counterfeit objects
Both companies have filed a lawsuit against the leaders of an international network of trafficking and commercialization of counterfeit objects that operated on Facebook and, in this way, they seek to launch a warning to prevent this kind of actions, “which will not be tolerated”, as they assure in a release, and announce that they will continue their efforts to eradicate this business.
This is the first time that Facebook has litigated with another company. His decision is part of Facebook’s efforts to suppress, by legal means, the crimes that are committed on its platform. Likewise, the movement reflects Facebook’s growing interest in eCommerce, thus seeking to create a safe environment for companies to do business on the social network.
