Any newspaper (or other advertising medium) that accepts an ad for 
heroin or cocaine would certainly be subject to legal action.  While 
the social consequences of eBay's acceptance of ads for illegal 
amplifiers don't rise to that level, there is certainly a presumption 
(as stated in eBay's own policies) that ads for illegal products will 
not be accepted.
