Station Unity will not condone the sale of any merchandise that violates United States and International Trademark or Copyright Laws. Protected items include, but are not limited: to video cassettes, laser discs, digital versatile discs, compact discs, audio cassettes, CD-ROM and re-writable discs, floppy discs, EPROM storage chips, models, figures, hats, cosplay clothing, and toys. Also included, but not limited to, are all printed media such as books, magazines, cards, posters/scrolls (fabric or paper) and clothing with printed art.
Fan art (i.e. unlicensed character rips, logo rips, etc.) in the form of prints, posters, buttons, etc. may only be sold by artists.
Authentic import merchandise must have the proper taxation labels applied in an obvious location on the outer packaging of the item. Most Japanese products (anime-related or not) carry these government labels, regardless of the type of merchandise. A few rare exceptions are garage kits, which may only have photocopied covers on the boxes. They should still have the proper copyright information, and often still have the official taxation labels. Another exception is the vast amounts of doujinshi that circulate the convention circuit.
Weapons, except for foam, wood, or prop weapons, may not be sold within the Vendors Hall.
The sale or distribution of any food item, specialty snacks, and beverages is prohibited. This includes gifts with purchase, giveaways, raffles, paid food sales, and any other means of distribution of food or beverage.
Maryland law prohibits selling or dispensing contact lenses, including decorative lenses, without a valid and non-expired prescription. Therefore, the selling and distribution of contact lenses in the Station Unity Vendors Hall is prohibited.
Any merchandise that may be interpreted as unlawful and/or inappropriate, by Station Unity Vendors Hall staff and/or an industry representative, will be removed for further examination. Upon examination, if it is unauthorized, that item must be removed from the convention site by the Vendor. Any Vendor that persists in the sale of such merchandise after being told to remove it will be ejected from the convention without refund.
You must be 18+ years of age to apply for a booth in the Vendors Hall. Based upon Maryland Age of Majority statutes (COML Art. 1 §103), it is Station Unity’s policy that minors are not allowed to sign the contract; a parent or guardian must sign on behalf of the minor.
