Why Was My Auction Ended?
Within the guidelines of the VeRO Program, a legal rights holder can request the removal of eBay listings (active or ended) that infringe on their trademarks and copyrighted works.
SnugglyCat Inc takes great pride in the manufacturing its products of the best quality materials on US soil. Maintaining the integrity of our trademark and copyrights is a priority. Unfortunately, unscrupulous sellers on eBay are auctioning products bearing the SnugglyCat Inc and/or Ripple Rug trademarks, passing themselves off as genuine sellers of our product. Arbitrage and sale of these goods in any such case constitutes theft and fraud, crimes and civil actions punishable under federal and state laws with steep penalties. We will prosecute violators to the fullest extent of the law. Do not attempt to use software to Arbitrage our Amazon inventory, you will be caught. We will report you to all parties involved which will likely result in a banned from eBay and Amazon; not to mention shipping restrictions by Fedex and UPS for unlawful use of shipping services. We will prosecute.
