OK to offer bricksets from Chinese manufacturers (Kazi, Lepin, etc.) on here?

Hi,
I just found this place.  Even though the name of the site sounds "generic" enough, it looks like what's discussed, and sold, is LEGO only.  To make a little extra money for my family I import and resell the less expensive brands.  I read the rules and don't see any prohibition on other brands but wanted to be sure that's cool before I post them.
Here's what I'm talking about:

    Ewww...

    To answer your question and to also accurately reflect my sadness at this question even being posed, I think Vader said it best at the end of episode 3...

    NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!


    @Huw , @drdavewatford , @CapnRex101 - Can you please bring order to the forum on this one? I don't think the post needs to be on Brickset forums any longer than the 30 minutes it has been so far.

    You've obviously never heard of copy write laws.

    Why do you think anyone here would want to buy them from you anyway? Presumably you'd be charging more than the website you just advertised. Everyonehere knows about fakes and the sites you can buy them from. Some people are anti-fakes completely, some pro-fakes, many somewhere inbetween.  But I'm fairly sure everyone knows where to buy them without going through a middle man.

    If you want to try and use a soon to be probably illegal (if Lego wins it's case against Lepin for copyright) product to raise money for your family that's up to you but don't put it on someone else. @Huw @CapnRex101 @drdavewatford

    So then... I seem to recall that some clone brands sell sets like the Arvo Brothers Alien Chestburster (with the designer's permission, but using clone bricks). Presumably these are deemed illegal too?

    I imagine so. But again, why would someone purchase a new Arvo bros set made from non-lego from a reseller, when they can get one from various websites without a mark-up.

    That said, at least the Arvo bros types of sets are not fakes of original LEGO sets.
