ebay & human trafficking

The Swiss branch of Amnesty International took credit Wednesday for a short-lived viral campaign on eBay that used mock auction entries to underscore the issue of human trafficking. More than 200 entries — based on trademarks that could be someone’s first name — cropped up on eBay on Monday evening. One that began “Mercedes, 1986, excellent condition” showed not a car, but a young woman available for auction. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/News/News_By_Industry/ET_Cetera/Amnesty_takes_human_trafficking_issue_to_eBay/articleshow/3164690.cms
