Ebay are not very good at it at all really they allow the sale of thousands of fake and copied items every day thats why many companies are taking them to court due to lack of direct action by ebay(sorry bit of an ebay nerd), infact its well documented that they will only act if the item is reported by the community or by the IP owner ,GW in this case and GW's Legal team are pretty sh*t hot when it comes to pulling non licenced stuff from ebay.

Hes a great looking chap!, i collect the star wars muggs.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

I think selling a piece of fan art avoids the whole copywrite thing.

Otherwise you couldn't custom GS up a marine as a piece of artwork and later sell it.

It's the reproductions they will get on you about.

I have to imagine that GW is far more irked by people selling models / armies on eBay than something like this.

Copyright issues or not, it's a damn cool piece of work.
