    "Mug shot" LOL.

    Yeah, I'd say there would definitley be a copyright issue, if the company was made aware of what they were doing of course.

    Copyright/Trademark issue. You need to get written consent in order to be able to use their logo. For the big companies this is virtually impossible.

    They have their own merchandizing department, so I doubt they license a whole lot. Chances are he'll get a complaint and told he can't sell them and he'll either stop or get kicked off of ebay.
