Before dragging Amazon to the court, Beverly Hills Polo had sent a legal notice to Amazon pointing out the above issue, and Amazon made bogus claims to remove some of the URLs but subsequently, fresh links were soon seen on the Amazon site again. On its defence, Amazon spokesperson said in an email, without mentioning the Beverly Hill Polo case, “Amazon has zero tolerance for counterfeit”.
