The For Real Seal is a copyrighted logo and permission is granted for its
intended use from the owners. Any violation of its intent is an

users. Besides, anyone using it inappropriately can be reported to eBay (and
the list). Ebay forbids inappropriate use of copyrighted material, and
should take necessary corrective action against the offender.
