If an eBay seller's merchandise has been pulled it is most likely because someone somewhere has claimed they have infringed upon a copyright. Now, this may or may not be true, but nonetheless, the merchandise is pulled. More often then not, the seller has used a term or phrase that a company claims to own a copyright to. If a seller, hoping to reduce the amount of times merchandise is pulled or account shut down, then asks for a list of copyrighted terms, eBay will direct him or her to a website.
As part of eBay's VeRO program, VeRO members are allowed to establish their own pages laying out exactly what they consider to be an infringement upon copyright. eBay will not give you a list of terms and phrases which infringe upon copyright. Afterall, as we found, there are very few words and phrases which aren't copyrighted. In fact, it seems that there is nothing one could possible write that would not infringe upon a copyright in some way or another.
No. eBay will not provide sellers with a list, so we decided to do it for you. Below is a link to all the terms and phrases which VeRO members claim infringe upon their copyrights. Keep in mind that this is not an extensive list. This is only the list of VeRO members' copyrighted terms and phrases. There are many many more out there so be careful.
