The lawsuit claims that Etsy misrepresented its true operating the business condition. Specifically, the suit claims that defendants misstated and/or failed to disclose that: (1) more than 5% of all merchandise for sale on Etsy's website were either counterfeit or constituted trademark or copyright infringement; (2) brands are increasingly pursing sellers on Etsy's platform for trademark or copyright infringement, jeopardizing the Company's listing fees and commissions; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, Etsy's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On May 11, 2015, before the market opened for trading, numerous news outlets issued a note downgrading Etsy to "Underperform." As a result of this news, shares of Etsy fell $1.86 on heavy trading volume to close at $20.85 on May 11, 2015.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 13, 2015.
