Bloomberg Finance L.P. (“Bloomberg”) is one of the largest providers worldwide of financial data, news, analytical tools and related goods and services. Bloomberg is the owner of the “Bloomberg” trade name and BLOOMBERG trademark and service marks. Bloomberg or its affiliates also manufacture and supply Bloomberg branded, proprietary equipment and hardware (“Bloomberg Equipment”) which is leased to Bloomberg customers for as long as they have a license for the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL® service. On expiry of the license, the Bloomberg Equipment is to be returned to Bloomberg as a condition of the agreement.
Bloomberg always maintains ownership of the Bloomberg Equipment, and there is no legitimate secondary market for Bloomberg Equipment.
Why Was My Item Removed?
It has come to our attention that you are offering Bloomberg Equipment on ebay Inc.’s website, located at www.ebay.com.
As mentioned above, Bloomberg only provides the Bloomberg Equipment to its customers for as long as they have a license for the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL® service. At no stage does Bloomberg offer or sell the Bloomberg Equipment to the general public and consequently, there is, no secondary market in any Bloomberg Equipment. As a result, the Bloomberg Equipment offered for auction by you may have been stolen or otherwise misappropriated and remains the property of Bloomberg. In light of the above, you do not have the permission, right or authority to offer for sale or purchase any Bloomberg Equipment and you are requested to immediately contact either of the Bloomberg contacts listed below in order to make arrangements for the return of any Bloomberg Equipment in your possession to Bloomberg.
Who should I contact at Bloomberg?
Please contact either David Molin at email@example.com to arrange for the return of any Bloomberg Equipment in your possession. Please ensure that you have the serial numbers relating to any Bloomberg Equipment in your possession available as you will be asked to provide them.
