Would you guys even list this? It's seriously just a pink and black bow with a bottle cap that says I love JB. I bought it before I learned about all this copyright infringement stuff, but I still wanna use it and I don't know anyone who likes jonas brothers? You think this is safe to list or should I forget it?
It really depends if you want to take a risk. I've seen plenty of stuff on etsy that even says "Jonas Brothers", not just "JB". Do a search on etsy for "Jonas Brothers" and you'll be amaized. Reality is there is a very slim chance somebody would want to sue you (unless you are very rich), it makes no sence for them to waist their time and money to collect a few dollars from you. I wonder if selling it on e-bay would be any different?
