    Hey guys. I want to know how drop shippers are getting away with doing stuff like this:

    worldofharry.com

    coolpencilcase.com/collections/organizers/products/pokemon-ball-coin-bank?variant=19383150019

    In first example, the whole store concept is built on the Harry Potter brand. I highly doubt the owner of the store contacted Harry Potter lawyers before setting up store and negotiated agreement. Second example is selling Pokemon products. Aren't these drop shippers taking a massive legal risk? Couldn't they get sued for all they're worth? Thoughts, please ?

    well it's incredible to me that for Harry Potter guy, for example, hasn't been sued yet. He's obviously made a lot of money off his store, I see it mentioned in drop shipping discussions a lot. I find it hard to believe Harry Potter people haven't filed a suit yet... maybe he does have an agreement w/ them
