Abstract: Explicit counterexamples to bilinear estimates related to the Benjamin-Ono equation in the periodic setting are calculated for functions of zero mean value. As a consequence, certain bilinear estimates fail to hold in spite of the analyticity of the flow map. The latter has been shown recently by L. Molinet.
