Hi there, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a business law attorney with experience in all aspects of business law. I'll do my best to assist you.
1. You are allowed to show the products you are selling. You could face liability for using trademarked or copyrighted material, such as logos or advertisements. You you could face liability or simply be prevented from using trademarked material for advertising purposes (for example, Google will often prevent you from using certain trademarked keywords for advertising with AdWords). However, you can generally take a picture of your product and state that is the product your are selling, as well as name it and describe it.
2. There is nothing that generally would prevent you from purchasing an item at a store and selling it overseas in terms of liability to the manufacturer, without any other agreement. Often, if you purchase a product from a distributor or manufacturer, you will be required to sign a contract
where you agree to restrict sales to a given geographic region. Violation of those terms could be a cause of action
. However, if you're just purchasing them from a store without any agreement that would not apply.
You would likely need to focus more on the import
restriction of a consumable product like cosmetics in the foreign country, as well as the nature of international business transactions.
3. There are free legal resources online such as nolo.com and both private and government business administration websites. Some attorneys might provide a free initial consultation. However business law is not an area with a great deal of pro bono activity. You'd likely need to pay something for any fact-specific legal guidance in that field.
