Without releasing any camouflage edition, Hermès enrolls the counterfeit war and claims 30,000 euros from Ebay at the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Troyes, France.

Last week they came and took the other 556 handbags and luggage. So how about that? Do you think it’s related to their decision to offensively fight against counterfeiting? […]
