Tiffany showed that 1) many sellers whose accounts had been suspended by eBay based on a NOCI sent by Tiffany were able to continue to use eBay under different eBay seller IDs; and 2) many sellers were able to repost listings for counterfeit product after the original listing had been taken down by virtue of Tiffany's NOCI.
Recall that the judge stated that willful blindness is proven if eBay "knew of a high probability of illegal conduct and purposely contrived to avoid learning of it." If eBay receives a NOCI from a rights owner, even if that NOCI is only evidence of suspected infringement (and not actual infringement), the NOCI at least provides eBay with knowledge that there is "a high probability of illegal conduct" taking place on the site.
