Ultimate Warrior Issues Statement About People Selling His Merchandise On eBay

The Ultimate Warrior issued the following statement regarding reports of him demanding 30% of any Warrior merchandise sold on eBay:

“The story regarding Ultimate Warrior merchandise that has been reported on wrestling news sites today is inaccurate.

“Warrior Entertainment have at no point demanded royalties which would allow sellers to continue producing unlicensed goods.

“Without exception, all counterfeit merchandise bearing Ultimate Warrior intellectual property will be removed without warning from all auctions sites, websites or similar.”

The Ultimate Warrior himself posted a message in our Comments section on the article about the story, which was also e-mailed to us, stating:

“Recent stories about Warrior attempting to swindle 30% royalties from eBayers auctioning Ultimate Warrior items are ridiculously inaccurate. The actual royalty demand is 110%, 100% of money made from the sale plus a 10% service fee for handling the hassle of informing others of their no-nos.

“Sorry, but ALL unlicensed goods and ALL counterfeit merchandise using the Ultimate Warrior Intellectual Property will be removed without warning from all auctions sites, websites or similar.

“It’s MY gimmick. I OWN it. If you want one, do the work it takes to create one for yourself.

“Always Believe,

    “Sorry, but ALL unlicensed goods and ALL counterfeit merchandise using
    the Ultimate Warrior Intellectual Property will be removed”

    That’s funny considering he doesn’t own the rights to the Ultimate Warrior name and can’t have anything removed.

      Actually, he does…

      He has kinda changed his name to legally own the rights to it.

      • Drmgiver

        He owns the rights to “Warrior” stuff. He does not own the rights to Ultimate Warrior.

          At least someone here is smart.

          He still gets royalties off anything the WWE sells with the Ultimate Warrior likeness on it. It is called likeness rights. They still have to pay him royalties because it was his face on the Ultimate Warrior name. If WWE makes no money off Ultimate Warrior, neither does he.

          • Drmgiver

            Ok, but that isn’t even close to the same thing.

    Hahahahaha this guy is a deluded idiot. For this I shall find an Ultimate Warrior action figure and sell it online for freakin 20p.

      Delusional maybe, but he’s within his rights. If people out there are making replicas of his stuff, or even fan made tees and things of the sort… and selling it, he’s in his right to be pissed off about it.

      I think he’s toned down quite a bit from what he used to be.

      Well, that’s not exactly what he’s talking about. He’s not saying that if you own a Mattel Ultimate Warrior action figure, you can’t sell it on Ebay. He’s saying that if it is unlicensed item, such as a fan created shirt, or poster, artwork, whatever–you can’t sell it. And legally, he is well within his rights to do so. Hell, Marvel Studios does it all the time, with custom action figures, Deadpool belt buckles that were fan created, etc. They force them to take the items down. Like I said, his intellectual property. His call.

      However, he doesn’t need to be the giant d-bag that he always inevitably turns into in these situations. He’s obnoxious.

      He’s not talking about Ultimate Warrior action figures. They’re licensed by the toy company that made them (i.e. Kenner, Mattel, etc.). I’m not really sure which toy company made them, but those items are licensed by the company.
      He’s talking about UN-licensed stuff (i.e. bootlegged or fan-created stuff), and he’s well within his legal rights to do so. Ebay tries their best to stop nonsense like this from going on as it is, but they can only do so much. They say it in their policy that you can’t sell bootlegged stuff. It’s like going to see your favorite rock band in concert, recording the audio on your iPhone, burning it to a CD, and then selling that CD. Same thing, and that rock band has every right legally to stop you.
      So if you have an old Ultimate Warrior shirt that you bought back in 1988 from the WWF magazine’s catalog, and it no longer fits, and you want to sell it on Ebay, that’s a totally different story. You’re very much legally allowed to do so, and Warrior isn’t talking about that. It’s the bootlegged stuff he’s talking about.
