VeRO Participant Profiles

To help you safely sell branded products on eBay, we offer these pages written by intellectual property rights owners and similar organizations that work with eBay. These pages give information about the brands’ products and legal positions. The rights owners are solely responsible for the content. Please contact the rights owners directly if you have questions. Some rights owners who work with eBay did not to contribute a page, so the list of brands is not comprehensive.

If you represent a rights owner with a page below and have concerns about it, please contact us at
