Are eBay and Amazon Helping Sellers with New NFL Ban?

By: Reader

Dear Ina,
Love reading your blog. Can you contact eBay and Amazon to get their take on the new NFL policy of not allowing NFL products to be sold on 3rd party sites with eBay and Amazon specifically listed?  

Are eBay and Amazon doing anything on the sellers behalf to get this policy overturned? 

Also, will Amazon be able to sell NFL product direct since they own the site and are not a 3rd party?

We sell licensed product and a lot of NFL product. This new policy will hurt our business. I understand they want sellers selling counterfeit goods off the internet as do we, but punishing hardworking honest sellers is not the way to do it.
Best regards.
Janet

eBay's answer to you "we are just a platform, we are just a platform, we are just a platform".

When it comes to legal matters, eBay is just a platform. Don't ever expect help when there is a cadre of powerful attorneys involved.
