First of all: It is illegal to sell 'knock offs' on ebay & I believe it is anywhere in the U.S. Although you are correct many, many sellers are doing it successfully on ebay. Supposedly you are violating the ebay selling 'rules' or agreement but it seems as though it is overlooked or it is just too much to 'police' for ebay, also think about the $$$$$ ebay is making off of these replicas. I read on an ebay forum that 90% or more of these name brands are fake. WHO KNEW?
I sure as hell didn't. I always wondered where the hell everybody is getting all this stuff to sell.and for less$$$. I have been an ebay buyer for 3 years & never thought my Abercrombie coat I bought last year for $100 less than the mall price could be fake. If it is..who cares? I don't . $259 for a coat is a joke anyway, what is it made of frigggin gold?
Anyway, to answer your question, is it wrong? I'll give you my opinion: I say it is if you claim they are authentic, genuine or whatever and sell them for top dollar to unsuspecting buyers. I personally don't think it is if you sell these items (that look the same, feel the same, etc. for a fraction of the cost to consumers. Beleive me it made my day when I came home from the mall after trying on that Abercrombie coat!! I figured I'd see if any were on ebay and yes, it was!!! To this day I do not know if it is authentic (never checked - don't care!) That's my theory.
