The largest e-tailers, including Amazon, Flipkart, eBay, Snapdeal and others, have faced dozens of lawsuits alleging infringement of patents, trademarks and copyrights.
But the biggest ecommerce companies have been the most aggressive in suing the other companies, often accusing them of unfair competition and intellectual property infringement.
The companies that have sued the big players have generally won, with a few exceptions.
In the United States, Amazon’s main legal battle against eBay is the largest of its kind in the world.
The e-retail giant has sued more than 200 firms, including Apple, Amazon, eBay and Walmart, as well as the online retailer’s own parent company, eBay.
In 2014, the company settled a case with the US Patent and Trademark Office, agreeing to pay $3.8 billion.
The agreement said that Amazon would pay $1.5 billion to the US government.
In Europe, FlipKart is also involved in patent and trademark lawsuits, which it has also settled.
It has also faced multiple lawsuits in other countries, including Japan, the European Union, the US and China.
In Australia, Amazon has also been a big target.
The online retailer is one of the largest online retailers in the country, but the courts have been a major focus for the company.
Last year, it was the target of several lawsuits in Australia, including from eBay, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon.
In 2015, it settled a $4.5 million lawsuit with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) over claims it made in relation to “defamatory and misleading” advertisements about its Australian business.
The settlement said the company had also agreed to provide more information about its business operations and how the advertisements had been written.
In India, Flip Karts is the second-largest e-business in the nation, after Amazon.
In the country’s consumer-driven economy, the e-shop is also a major player in the online marketplace.
Last year, the court ruled that Flip Kart had breached its contract with customers when it promoted its own products on its website.
Last week, the Supreme Court ruled that it will decide the case against Flip Karters next month.
The Supreme Court also heard the case of the Indian conglomerate, Hindustan Unilever.
The company, which had sued Flip Kars over allegations of breach of patent, filed a case against Amazon.
Earlier this month, Hindusurat Maurya, an associate professor at the Law Faculty of the University of Hyderabad, wrote in a blogpost that Amazon had sued companies and individuals including Apple and Apple Watch maker Pebble.
Amazon is the world leader in terms of online retail.
In 2018, it claimed it had a market value of $6.5 trillion, according to Forbes.
The group also claimed that it had $2 trillion in cash, compared to Flip Kans $3 billion.
However, according a report by eMarketer, Amazon had lost $1 billion in the first half of 2019 due to the litigation.
