Njord Latvia is representing AbeBooks Inc. and AbeBooks Europe GmbH, subsidiaries of Amazon Inc., in a dispute with the Latvian operator of a website who allegedly infringed on the copyright of the companies by using text and images taken from the www.abebooks.co.uk website.

AbeBooks is an online marketplace for books, fine art, and collectables. Abe AbeBooks Inc. and AbeBooks Europe GmbH are subsidiaries of Amazon Inc.

Njord reports that it has secured a win in the court of first instance, as "the court held the defendant responsible for illegal copying and inserting the advertisements from www.abebooks.co.uk to http://antiques.gift and prohibited the defendant from making his website available on the Internet."

The Njord team consisted of Partner Sergei Petrov and Senior Associate Anna Kosinska.
