I recently recieved a MC019 alert from eBay claiming my listing violated trademark rights. The product in question was an altered version of a magic card.
Similar listing to mine: http://cgi.ebay.com/Altered-Foil-Swa...item3a619d673f
The process involves taking a magic card, erasing the front, then pasting transparency paper onto it.
My question is this: Does altering a real magic card in this way still violate trademark?
The base card is a real card made by the company that owns the trademark. I am also, similar to the seller above, not claiming it is a different product but a altered version of the original card.
Let me know if I need to add any more details to help get an answer. Appreciate the help.
