On top of that their warranty breaks immediately if you purchase a 1 day used Panasonic product from ebay. The moment your receipt does not list an authorized Panasonic reseller your warranty is gone. This means their warranty does not follow the product it only follows the first owner.

If it was a gift to you they will still ask for the original receipt and I have no idea what types of roadblocks they will throw at you once they see the purchase name on the receipt doesn't match your name and address.

??? That is the standard all over the world. As far as I know no one warranties gear that is second hand.

No, it is not. Tha warranty is for the gear, regardless of who owns it. You don't have to identify yourself when buying gear, and you don't have to identify yourself when sending gear for repairs.
