Had a Goodyear hose for a Hyundai listed (among several hundred other 
hoses and parts that fit cars with names) This is the message from 

250757658721 - Goodyear 61636 Upper Radiator Hose Sonata

The listing was removed because it violated <http://www.ebay.com>eBay policy.
The rights owner or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the 
rights owner, Hyundai Motor America, notified 
<http://www.ebay.com>eBay that this listing violates intellectual 
property rights. When <http://www.ebay.com>eBay receives a report of 
this type of violation, we remove the listing to comply with the law.

Your item was removed because of a request we received from Hyundai 
Motor America, a member of our Verified Rights Owner Program (VeRO), 
asking us to remove the item for:

- Listing(s) contains unlawful comparison to trademark owner's brand name.

If you have additional questions or concerns on why your item was 
removed, please contact Hyundai Motor America directly at:

<mailto:enforce at mm-hyundai.com>enforce at mm-hyundai.com

Please allow 7 days for Hyundai Motor America to reply to you.

All listing fees associated with the removed item(s) have been 
credited back to your account.

Your listing was reported for using a brand name without the right's 
owner's permission.

It's against the law to use someone else's trademark -- the unique 
sign, name, word, phrase, logo, or symbol used to identify a product 
or service -- without their okay. It can also confuse buyers about 
the source of your item or your relationship with the trademark owner.

You can use a company's brand name or logo in your listing 
description only if the item you're selling was made or authorized by 
that company.

Wow.... guess I have to ask MG and Triumph and Borgward and LLoyd.... 
this could dampen <http://www.motors.ebay.com/>eBay motors a bit.
