Ama's Originals Terms of Service lay out some of the legal aspects.
Ama's Originals Terms of Service is one of those "legal" things that, luckily, I don't have to deal with. Ok, I have to make sure I hold up my end. Thankfully, LaughingBear takes care of me.
This is another of those really long pages that most folks tl;dr (Too Long; Didn't Read). But it's here, and accessing the site means you have agreed.
Practically every web site must have a Terms of Service page these days. Why? Simply because there are so many people out there that will do their very best to take advantage of any situation. We're already somewhat familiar with many of our customers, at least in the early stages. We have no issues with nor inability to trust any of you. It's for those that come in future (hopefully) that we may not know, that this kind of page may be necessary.
LaughingBear has searched the web for all the varieties of ToS in order to get an idea what we need here. I, Ama am SO very grateful that he has done this for me! Watching him deal with the frustration and headache of this whole web thing makes me appreciate him even more!
I can't stand reading through these things, but LaughingBear has taken a slightly different approach. Below, you'll see the various sections of (boring) legalese. Well, that's on the left side. The right side is something I've never seen. He calls it: Simply Put. He has turned the legalese into shorter, more simple language that even I can understand!
Welcome to the AmasOriginals.com website (the "Site"), a website owned and operated by Ama's Originals.
The terms and conditions stated below, along with the policies and guidelines located throughout the Site (collectively herein the "Terms") identify what you, as a user of the Site ("you" or "User") can expect from AmasOriginals.com, its parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates (together referred to herein as "AmasOriginals.com"), and/or persons who provide products or services to AmasOriginals.com customers either directly or through AmasOriginals.com ("AmasOriginals.com Providers") and the Site and what AmasOriginals.com in turn expects from Users.
This is that sneaky legalese clause that says, you came in, you have agreed to these terms.
AmasOriginals.com grants the User a limited, nonexclusive, revocable license to access and make personal, non-commercial use (unless User has a business relationship with AmasOriginals.com) of the contents of the AmasOriginals.com Site, which includes the Digital Content, as defined in DIGITAL CONTENT ("Content") below.

The government seems to like going after thieves of this type.

If they violate our ToS we may take action.
Any AmasOriginals Software, is "commercial computer software" or "commercial computer software documentation." The U.S. Government's rights with respect to the AmasOriginals Software are limited by these Terms and Conditions of Use, pursuant to FAR § 12.212(a) and/or DFARS § 227.7202-1(a), as applicable. User agrees that by installing, copying, or otherwise using the AmasOriginals Software and the AmasOriginals.com Site that: (i) User does not reside in a country subject to embargo or export controls by the U.S. Government; (ii) User is not on the List of Denied Persons as published by the U.S. government; and (iii) User will not use the AmasOriginals Software or the AmasOriginals.com Site for any illegal purpose. Because the AmasOriginals Software, the AmasOriginals.com Site, and related technical data are subject to U.S. export controls, User agrees that User shall not upload, export or "re-export" (transfer) the AmasOriginals Software or any Content, including Digital Content and User Created Content, unless User has complied with all applicable U.S. export controls.
At such time as AmasOriginals develops software, said software can only be sold to residents and persons not on the "naughty list" of the U.S. Government.
The price for an item on the AmasOriginals.com Site may differ from the price shown in a User's shopping cart — it is possible that such price may increase or decrease between the time the item is placed in a shopping cart and the time that the purchase is actually made. On rare occasions, an item may be priced incorrectly on the AmasOriginals.com Site. If the price for the item on the AmasOriginals.com Site is incorrect and is actually higher than the price provided at the time of purchase, then, at the sole discretion of AmasOriginals.com, AmasOriginals.com may either (i) contact the User for instructions before shipping the item or charging the User for such item; (ii) cancel the order for such item and notify the User of such cancellation; or (iii) ship the item at the incorrect price to the benefit of the User.
Please note that this policy regarding prices applies only to items sold and shipped by AmasOriginals.com. Any purchases of Digital Content, as that Term is defined in DIGITAL CONTENT below, or from any third-party sellers on the AmasOriginals.com Site may be subject to different policies in the event of an incorrectly priced item.
What this means is that sometimes a price change occurs on the internet while you're shopping. It's rare. But it can happen that the price you see on the store may not be the one you see in the cart.
We'll work with you to keep you happy.
With the exception of Digital Content, as that Term is defined in DIGITAL CONTENT below, the risk of loss and title for all items purchased via the AmasOriginals.com Site pass to the User upon delivery of the item to the carrier.
Once you receive it, you own it. Don't lose it.
The items offered for sale on the AmasOriginals.com contain descriptions that are provided directly by the publisher, manufacturer or distributor of such item. AmasOriginals.com does not represent or warrant that the descriptions of such items are accurate or complete.
IF A USER PURCHASES AN ITEM FROM AMASORIGINALS.COM THAT IS NOT AS DESCRIBED ON THE AMASORIGINALS.COM SITE, THE USER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO RETURN SUCH ITEM IN AN UNUSED CONDITION FOR A REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE.
Intially, the product descriptions originate within AmasOriginals. If we begin to carry outside products, we can't be held responsible for inaccuracies in their product descriptions.
Our products and services are marketed for and directed towards purchase by adults . Individuals under the age of 18 ("Minors") are permitted to use AmasOriginals websites, but should do so under adult supervision. Furthermore, we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an online account or to post personal information on our websites. Should we learn that someone under the age of 13 has provided any personal information to or on any of the AmasOriginals websites, we will remove that information as soon as possible.
While our site is Good Clean Fun, it's for adults. If someone under age registers or purchases and we find out, we'll cut them off.
In certain cases, in AmasOriginals.com's sole discretion, AmasOriginals.com may provide written notice (a "Restriction Notice") to a User (a "Restricted User") to inform such Restricted User that (i) his or her right to use or access any part of the AmasOriginals.com Site has been terminated including the right to use, access or create any account thereon; (ii) that AmasOriginals.com refuses to provide any services to such Restricted User; and (iii) any subsequent orders placed by a Restricted User will be subject to cancellation. Other conditions may apply and shall be set forth in the Restriction Notice.
If you don't behave, we may, at our discretion, issue you a warning. Or not. You may receive a restriction notice that will tell you you've locked out, we won't let you back in and may cancel any future orders.
If you use our site and someone else sues you, it's not coming back on us.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by AmasOriginals.com, including Digital Content and User Created Content, infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send AmasOriginals.com a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on this website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow AmasOriginals.com to locate the material on the AmasOriginals.com Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send AmasOriginals.com a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see Library of Congress - Copyright for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to:
P.O. Box 502

You or your agent may contact AmasOriginals and request removal of conent in which you own the copyright. We'll remove it as soon as possible once we deem it necessary. Otherwise, there is a process.
Everything is here, along with references to other information. The headings are just headings.
