The Court’s judgment ruled that when online users search for the product of a certain manufacturer, Amazon may also display the competing products of other manufacturers.

Bicycle bags and rucksacks company Ortlieb argued that only its products should be displayed in Amazon searches when searching for Ortlieb.
