Default MC019 Trademark Violation

Hi guys,

I know this has been discussed a lot before, and I have done a search, it's just my situation is a bit weird.

Basically, I sell vero and my account (pre 07) was given a selling limit (not suspension), so I couldn't sell as much as I wanted to. It wasn't a formal selling limit, just a blanket limit that ebay gives to everyone, i.e. when you go to list, they won't let you.

So I switched to my other non stealth very old pre 07 account and put up 5 listings on that. This Vero usually doesn't remove listings as I have been selling almost 6 months with no incidence of pulled listings, and so do loads of other sellers. But suddenly, after only 2 days of listing, my listings are pulled by the rights owner.


I am shocked and bemused! No one else gets their listings removed for these items -- loads of people are selling them, long time sellers, and worse yet I myself am still selling them, on my main account. I am 1) slightly confused as to why my other listings on my main account haven't been removed , and 2) worried that the rights owner will remove all listings on my main account.



These accounts are very much non-stealth, linked in many ways, so I am very worried that I can't shift 5000 pounds worth of stock before my listings get pulled and my account suspended. Im a student so thats a lot of money for me.


Does anyone have any suggestions? What is the probability that my other listings will get pulled?

Leave them on the other account and see what happens. I've had accounts linked selling the same item, and then one of the accounts get hit with a VERO notice.

I take it you didn't get a suspension?

Sometimes these things happen in waves, the vero company may not be searching for those items every day, maybe just jump on every couple of of weeks or somethng like that, or they have just realized their product on ebay and have just started to crackdown on it...
Dont know if that is right but thats what i reckon

It wasn't the actual vero brand owner who reported it, it was just ebay's counterfeit 'crack squad' . My other account is still going strong , touch wood , and that's what I am confused about . How can I list for so long unmolested, yet I have another account with more feedback and just as old, which gets listings removed after just a day??

That don't make no sense!!!!

If it wasn't a Vero member, then it's probably one of your competitors. I've had this problem.

It wasn't a competitor, or at least, it wasn't a competitor who submitted the vero claim, a competitor might have flagged me though. It was some non profit, anti piracy coalition , or some bs like that.

@Selfmade, touche, I just want to shift this uncomfortable amount of stock I have then I will give it a rest for a while.
