Is It Ok To Relabel Dahua Without Permission?

Dahua 8 channel POE NVR, $280, order today, get tomorrow. Good deal, except that...

Dahua doesn't support or stand behind unauthorized sales, like these.

But do they mind if someone were to sell and support them on their own? Would they prefer that their logo was replaced in that case?

Could they actually do anything to stop someone rebadging and reselling them(besides tightening their export control)?
