Great they are giving more fine tuned categories, but it also makes me nervous when a eBay says we’re “spotlighting Lego”

eBay just realized how much they f-ed up the CMF listings after the last update / category re-arrangements

I've found ebay and TLG to be especially militant when it comes to minifigs. There are many brands of custom printed minifigs I sell. Nowhere in my listings is a mention of LEGO (nor do I market them as lego) and they do takedowns. I think the EU carved out for them a pretty generous trademark for mini figures.
