El Paso Comic Con has a ZERO-TOLERANCE bootlegging and unlicensed materials policy. The sales and/or display of unauthorized or bootlegged material are strictly prohibited.
Only merchandise created by the artist him/herself or merchandise approved by the license holder for a depicted property that does not infringe on copyright and/or trademark laws may be sold at El Paso Comic Con.
El Paso Comic Con actively works with rights holders, licensees, and law enforcement to deter the sale of bootlegs and unlicensed materials. Exhibitors and artist/creators found to be in violation of this policy may be expelled permanently from El Paso Comic Con with no refund and will not be welcomed back at future shows. Violators may additionally be subject to prosecution by local, state, or federal authorities in attendance of the event.
Please don’t be a pirate. Creators work very hard and piracy negatively affects their livelihoods.
