No they don't - the listings have to be reported. There are hundreds of thousands of listings and it would be impossible to monitor each and every one.
This way they cannot be held liable for any listings that contravene the law.
Just as your local paper don't inspect the goods for sale in its bargain pages.
I don't think eBay really care, as long as they make money from the sale. They will only remove listings if they are reported, and as Ethel says, there's nothing to stop banned sellers starting a new ID. If I come across any dodgy listings in my travels, I often report them to both eBay and FACT, as well.
Oh - I doubt that they're "perfect" copies: have they got all subtitles, features and packaging? Even if they have, the people who made the show/movie won't be getting paid for their work.
