MC019 eBay Listing Removed: Trademark Violation - Unauthorized Item (345089870)


You recently listed the following listing:

170398888668 - MICHAEL JACKSON'S WILL PROBATE & DEATH CERTIFICATE copy
180424394957 - COPY OF LAST WILL OF MICHAEL JACKSON *THRILLLER


The listing was removed because it violated eBay policy.



The rights owner or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the rights owner, Bravado International Group, Inc., notified eBay that this listing violates intellectual property rights. When eBay receives a report of this type of violation, we remove the listing to comply with the law.



Trademark infringement is unlawful and violates eBay's policies. A trademark is a unique sign (such as a name, word, phrase, logo, or symbol) that a company uses to identify its products and/or services.

Using another company's trademark in a way that may confuse buyers about the source of goods or services, or confuses buyers into believing that the seller is affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by the trademark owner is both illegal and against eBay's policies. Examples include counterfeits, unauthorized replica items and items that bear the brand or logo of a company without that company's permission.

Guideline: If the product you are listing bears the brand or logo of a company, but it wasn't made or authorized by that company, don't sell it on eBay.

Using a trademark without the trademark owner's permission infringes trademark law. For this reason, eBay prohibits members listing items which bear a another's trademark but are not authorized by that trademark owner.

its a rights ownership issue, you havent had permission. You can try listing it creatively on a different id without using key words, but its hard as you say, no traffic will look at it without the right words in. They will keep an eye on your auctions on this id, so dont risk a suspension due to multiple takedowns...

Copyright VeRO claims can be countered through U.S. law by writing a counternotice to eBay, swearing under penalty of perjury, that the item is authentic and does not infringe on the copyright owner's rights.

Claims of trademark infringement have no legal process outside of the court system for getting the listing re-instated. The best bet would be to contact the VeRO participant at the email provided, and ask why they removed your listing. See what their main concern is and possibly ask if there is a way to modify the listing so that it can be re-listed without possibility for removal.
