Anyways, just to confirm, if I've 10 dresses from Diane Von Furstenberg then I am unable to sell these? I'm still not quite understanding how VERO can flag my listing and ultimately take it down.
If this is the case ... a lot of my women's clothes that I need to list ... won't be able to get listed....
They're possibly trying to shut him down, though more information would be needed before we jump to that conclusion. These types of programs have been used to do just that. The company doesn't seem to be claiming that his item is counterfeit, rather that it was intended to be sold elsewhere. Based on the email he received, had he restricted the "ship to" countries to only those where the product was intended, he wouldn't be in violation.
You're completely fine selling the dresses and any other brand on the list. You just need to follow guidelines. Ebay doesn't monitor, they're self-reported by the companies themselves. Therefore, a lazy company will allow quite a few things to slide.
Take Zegna, for example. They're not on the list, so it's not really necessary that you adhere to VeRO policies. However, on the manufacturer tag, you'll find that there is a small box for nationality. The country/regional code is given in which the item should be sold. If they were members and you sold a jacket that was destined for the Italian market in the US, they could file a complaint. If your dresses are intended for the US market, you will have no worries.
