Replicas, counterfeit items, and unauthorized copies policy
If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.
Items that bear a company's official brand name or logo can be listed as long as the products were lawfully made by, for, or with the consent of that company.
We don't allow replicas, counterfeit items, or unauthorised copies to be listed on eBay. Unauthorised copies may include things that are bootlegged, illegally duplicated, or pirated. These kinds of things may infringe on someone's copyright or trademark.
For examples of what you can and can't sell on eBay, see the guidelines below.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Here are some examples of items that can and can't be listed on eBay (note that this isn't an exhaustive list):
It's illegal to sell bootlegs, counterfeits, fakes, or unauthorised or pirated copies of any product. In order to comply with the law, we don't allow these items to be offered on eBay. This policy also helps protect buyers from getting counterfeit or unauthorised goods, and helps protect people from copyright or trademark infringement.
