    Hello, everyone
    I wanted to ask how legal is it to sell other people's merch with drop shipping. What can I sell ? And what will get me in trouble ?

    For example can I sell branded merchandise ? (clothes, mugs, keychains, etc)
    Something related to a movie, video game, anime, book, TV show ?
    Do I have to pay some kind of tax or anything to the original creator ?
