Is it illegal. . . . .??

I bought some tattoo flash off of e-bay about a week ago. Once I received it (it came through e-mail) it was not at all what I expected. There was some good stuff but the majority of it looked like clip art. After viewing this my husband and I were thinking about turning around and reselling it on ebay but adding some flash that we had found on the internet ot it. So basically we'd be selling what we bought plus tons more. Is it illegal if I was to do that??

  • Nope...it's yours and you can do with it what you like. I resell stuff all the time when it's not what I expected it to be. It's sometimes easier than tryin' to get a refund, and you can at least get some of your money back...or even make some!

    Copyright infringement. You could get sued for it.

  • Once you have purchased something, it is your property to do with as you wish. So long as you purchased the item, you are not stealing. If you buy a sweater and then sell it a yard sale it is essentially the same thing. People do this all the time with ebay.
