Ebay removed some of my listings, as they contained the word 'velcro'.
Why cant these listing then be found and edited, rather than starting a new listing again.
It takes time locating and finding out ean numbers etc etc

I don't think that eBay are terribly keen on making things easier for sellers who are using other people's brand names to sell their products.
It's the same as sellers who sell Disney fakes, or Pandora knock-offs complaining when their items are removed.
This is a policy that only affects sellers who are trading off other people's brand names.

If something has a Velcro fastening, but Ebay does not allow you to use the word Velcro, how else would you describe it? Just wondering

If items are legally requested to be removed they have to be fully removed from the site that's why you don't have this option.
@1122malcolm to answer your question, please see point 3. Use brand names appropriately on this page: http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/sell/compliant-listings.html for guidelines and tips.

My point was that Velcro is not only the name of the rights owner but also what the item is known has, it does not have any other name and is not easy to describe. You could not say it is a hooks and loop fastening although true, that would give a false impression of what it is.

I ended up calling them touch fasteners as using hook and loop was not viable when you can actually get a fastener that has a hoop on one side and a loop on another.
