A: Just because you are selling their product does not necessarily give you the right to use any of their materials. If you have an agreement with them about the resales, check it to see if this subject is covered. Also, check the Terms of Use provisions on their website. Likely they cover use of their IP by 3rd parties. Best to consult with counsel before you copy and paste anything. Good luck.
