I make antique replica dolls. There doesn't seem to be a subcategory in which my items will fit. They are not plush nor art dolls although art dolls is the closest match. Ebay has a modern replica, or modern primitive sub category put in the antiques section because buyers are looking for decorative replica objects that are compatible with antique decor.

I love your dolls, especially Hitty (Her First Hundred years) as I once has the book.

You might want to contact Craig and ask him is he could insert a subcategory where you need it.  It's best to tell him very specifically where it needs to be so it's easier for him. (:

Hi

I'm working on the doll category more this afternoon. I just hope no one puts new replica dolls in the antique replica doll category. 
I do worry about copyright issues on dolls that will post in this category.

One question I have on replica dolls, is copyright on the characters Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel. I guess I need to check if Disney still owns the copyright/trademark on these Characters.

With regard to copyright/trademark issues with Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, etc., Disney only owns copyright/trademark on their versions. They do not own the names as these are old fairy tales that have been around far longer than Disney. Therefore, no copying of Disney versions of these characters but artists can create their own versions and sell under the names as long as they make no reference to Disney and do not copy Disney's artistic versions.

This is how I understand it but please correct me if I am wrong.
