in the newspaper today it was talking about people selling counterfit abkingpro machines on trademe. and it also said only some people in new zealand have a licence to sell the real abkingpro.

if a person buys a real abkingpro from a shop in new zealand and they later decide to sell it on trademe, are they allowed or do they need a licence?

Best to ask the authorised distributor. But reality is if you have an original product, there is nothing preventing you selling it later - it's yours.

I don't understand the success of the product, especially with all that crapvertising they do.

And of course, it's all a bit of a have: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/1/story.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10520497

Our suburb has an inorganic rubbish clean up day once a year. All sorts of "exercise" machinery gets tossed out then bypassing even TradeMe.

So now would be a bad time to admit I own one? I actually did see really good results! then I got lazy and stopped using it... oops

I think mine may not be the real deal as it was rather shocking quality of product really but ah well it does the job

It would probably also depend on if it is counterfeit or just parallel imported.
Counterfeit would be subject to copyright violation and quite likely picked up by Customs if they have the information about the shipments.
Parallel imported is a different matter as the products in question are genuine but imported by another distributor.
