MozillaZine Offers Mozilla T-Shirts to EU Citizens

Almost all online shops that sell Mozilla shirts are on the American continent, so the shipping costs for European customers are high. Because I thought this was an odd situation I started, a small online t-shirt shop with Mozilla shirts among others. The shirts are cheap (starting at €13.50), but high quality. Shipping costs to any country in the European Union are only €2.50 per shirt. I donate €0.75 to the Mozilla Foundation for each shirt I sell."

Sorry to stress this point, but what is the legality of all this process ? Do you have a contract with the Mozilla Foundation to sell T-shirts with their name and logo on it ? Their IP isn't open source you know. Are you sure that isn't already planning a solution for European customers or that their current partner is not going to sur you ? :
