I just received a cease and desist letter from Gibney Anthony & Flaherty from NY. I live in Florida. I had a replica Rolex watch that I posted on Ebay. Ebay said I could not list them and the listing was removed. The letter from Gebney Anthony & Flaherty stated that I violated trade mark rules. They want me to send them my watch, $350 for each one, tell them who I got them from, and sign a letter stating I will never do this again. First, let me say there are websites all over the place selling replica watches so until Ebay told me that I could not list them I had no idea that there was an issue as long as I made sure I wasn't trying to portray them as being real. These were given to me a few years ago and I have seen other replica's for sale on Ebay. The only point I am making here is that I am not in the business of selling Rolex watches on Ebay or anywhere else. I sell used items here and there and have been on there for many years. It appears from what I have read about this law firm they make their money going after people who list or try to list fake merchandise on Ebay. Because there are websites that sell these watches I figured it was totally legal to do as long as you were upfront in saying it was a replica. I am simply looking for advice on how I should respond to this law firm. Thanks. Brian
