Additionally, Birkenstock won't authorize third-party merchants to sell on the site, according to a letter the company sent to several thousand retail partners on July 5. ... "The Amazon marketplace, which operates as an 'open market,' creates an environment where we experience unacceptable business practices which we believe jeopardize our brand," Kahan wrote from the company's U.S. headquarters in Novato, California.

It's unclear whether Amazon has a unique problem with fraudulent sellers or if they're simply the whipping boy du jour, although there does seem to have been an increase in complaints ever since Amazon started working more closely with Chinese companies.
