Compagnie Financière Richemont SA has scored a major victory against online counterfeiting and the Web sites where they conduct business. A California federal court awarded the luxury conglomerate a permanent injunction against a Pakistan-based business-to-business marketplace called Tradekey.com and its Saudi Arabia-based owner Sawabeh Information Services Co., for knowingly selling a host of counterfeit goods on its site.
