Ok, so I came across this earlier several weeks ago.

We'll import them from China. Are we allowed to sell them on eBay? Are the high copy versions legal in the UK?

Please can someone shed some light on this and how can we distinguish the difference between the original (genuine) and copy (fake).

Thank you,
Mr Sharaaz

if it's a good fake you can distinguish them by the serial #

I've purchased a few of the fake ipods, one thing I noticed is that the fake ipods won't work with itunes. I've had some that looked identical to ipod nano's and they wouldn't work with itunes. Ipods are the only mp3 players that can work with itunes. So thats one way of filtering out the fakes.

Thank you for the replies.

Do the copy/fake iPods have the same features like the click wheel? Also, does anyone know if they are legal? Can we sell them on eBay?

thank you,

I'm pretty sure you can sell it on ebay if you don't sell it as an Apple Ipod or put that in your title to draw attention

I've purchased probly over a hundred of fake ipods and have never seen one with the click wheel. I think that it is a patented design that only apple can use.

I've sold several on ebay and haven't had any problems. As long as you don't claim them to be Ipods you'll be alright. Be carefull though the profit margins are very low for these on ebay.

Just on my own experiences, I wouldn't buy the copy ipods. I bought 5 ipod mini copies from China. I think that you can get away with passing them on eBay as apple ipods, but I would be careful because for me they were difficult to sell without a warranty and 3 of the 5 were faulty, one scratched, one with a broken button, and one that was in a different box and wasn't acceptable to the buyers, which made me lose money and put me off of reselling for a few months. :x
