Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)



Q: Why was my auction suspended?

A: Gaiam strictly enforces its copyrights, trademark rights and other proprietary rights against unauthorized use. We believe that your listings on eBay for Gaiam merchandise infringes upon our rights. Therefore, we request the eBay remove your listings.

Q: Why hasn't Gaiam suspended all auctions selling infringing merchandise?

A: Gaiam vigorously enforces its intellectual property rights. The fact that others may be selling merchandise that infringes upon these rights does not give others the right to do so, nor does it prevent Gaiam from ending auctions that are later identified. If you would like to report an auction that you believe violates Gaiam’s rights and has not been suspended, please send the information along with the seller's name to us at customerservice@gaiam.com.


Q: I reported an infringement. Can you tell me what happened?

A: Gaiam treats each situation confidentially and does not report back to third parties.

Q: Why didn't Gaiam contact me directly before reporting my listings to eBay?

A: The number of listings that are investigated on a daily basis does not allow the time to contact each seller.

Q: If I purchase a legitimate copy of one DVD from an authorized retailer, can I re-sell that single copy on eBay?

A: It is legal to re-sell the single authorized videocassette that you purchased. But, be careful - you cannot make copies of authorized videocassettes and sell them.

Q: Can I use the Gaiam, Inc. logo, the "The FIRM®" logo, or other logos or properties owned by Gaiam to spice up my auction listing?

A: No. Use of these logos on your auction wrongfully implies that your auction is authorized, sponsored or approved by Gaiam, and dilutes the value of these logos, in violation of state and federal trademark laws.
