    Like I know the NFL and NBA have their expensive jerseys and stuff, team shirts, shorts, whatever. But if I were to buy a product from a store with team logos and stuff, do I need a certain license to resell those copyrighted or trademarked products?

    Otherwise I'm probably going to ditch the new ecommerce store I'm working on...

    As far as i know, you do. You can't use a logo on a commercial product without approval from whomever registered that logo as a trademark.

    Even if you aren't creating the product? I mean it's not like I'm printing the shirts, I'm buying them from someone who has all the copyright clearance already, and just selling them again...

    Oh, in that case i believe you are good. It may depend what kind of clearance your supplier has but i guess still safer then produce them yourself with no clearance. I am not a lawyer though.
