That is BS, I use almost exclusively CFL and have no problem with heat in enclosed fixtures. They just do not produce a whole lot of heat.
As a matter of fact I use a 100w equivalent CFL in a fixture designed for 60W because of the much lower heat signature.

If you have a legal team making a good enough contract and the buyers legal team is not good enough to catch it. There should be no problem at all.... There is absolutely nothing to stop you from selling your business with a clause like "You pay me a shitload of money but I keep all the business rights" if the buyer is ignorant to sign that deal.

All I can say to eBay is.... Next time get a better legal team :-) This time... just suck it up

Mind you this hammers in all the pro's of IP-laws and software patents and all the terrible thing associated with open source :-D
