It's an older article, but has some interesting points (including an interesting comment from a former eBay employee in comments section).  Basically, it says that the majority of IP infringement claims on Amazon and through eBay's VERO program are solely for the purpose of keeping the prices from 3P sellers and retail arbitrage sellers jacked up to MAP or higher.

"Based on my experience I have no doubt that the use of the VERO program by NetEnforcers is about maintaining pricing as a shill for the electronics companies, and not about trademark or copyright infringement."

Best line in the whole article.
