Default Ebay, legality and selling unofficial merchandise?

Hello,

I know many stores sell unofficial and rip offs of toys/games/figures/bed sheets/stickers, like "funtendo Vii" (or whatever it is called).

I think Walmart, various different dollar stores and canadian tire are some stores that do that, i may be wrong.

I was wondering if that is legal to sell? The toy will not be a copy of the original and will not be listed as the original. Like i put in the title description

"Trailer park boys plush toy unofficial" Is that fine? Or the same title without the unofficial?

Same with t-shirts. Like the hulk symbol, bazinga etc.

i'd say don't put unofficial but you have the chance of ebay getting on your case, its definttely more of a prob when it comes to replicas of high end brands. i've never heard of this funtendo vii though sounds interesting lol

Don't use branded or trademarked keywords in your title unless you are selling authentic. Simply adding the word unauthentic or unofficial won't help you when you are reported.
