PARIS – EBay was fined 1.7 million euros, or $2.55 million at current exchange rates, by a court here for failing to prevent the trade of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA’s perfumes and cosmetics on eBay’s French Website.

The online auction giant was found to have violated an injunction issued in June 2008, requiring eBay to stop French users from buying or selling authentic LVMH perfume products on any eBay site in the world.

LVMH contested more than 1,300 sales of perfume on eBay’s French site, saying they were covered by the injunction.
