What are your thoughts on unlicensed hand-made items, fan-made (and sold) merchandise and costume pieces?

Do you think we'll see a time when license holders will come down on home-made crochet Pokémon plushies, sculpey Naruto headbands or costumes depicting trade-marked logos/emblems from various properties?

Will/should con organizers prohibit the sale of this stuff, or do you think it should get a pass for not replicating actual products available from the legit licence holders?

It's a gray area to me, and I can see arguments for both sides.
